Distinction on Fast Track to success Distinction Doors has been ranked at number 93 in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list. The annual list, now in its 18th year, ranks Britain’s private companies with the fastestgrowing sales over three years. Andrew Fowlds, Distinction’s CEO, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded this accolade. It’s testament to the hard work of our staff and the loyalty of our customers and a great end to an already significant year in the history of Distinction.” Distinction’s inclusion in the list comes after a 48% sales increase over three years. It has recently expanded overseas and sent its first order to India in the autumn of 2014. The company reports that ‘considerable’ investment has also been made in its infrastructure in order to continue to deliver strong customer service. In 2014, Distinction was also ranked in the top 10 SME businesses in the Sheffield City Region in a list compiled by local publication, The Star Business. Andrew concluded: “2014 has been a great year for us and we’re looking forward to seeing what 2015 brings.” 50 DOORS & COMMERCIAL ENTRANCES Solidor unveils the Radlington Solidor has unveiled the Radlington, a new deep nose cill that is available in nine finishes complete with matching foiled end caps. The Radlington is said to be a modern interpretation of a traditional timber cill, with similar dimensions, yet it also offers a traditional appearance for any new build project. Traditional timber cills were deep and usually aligned with a course of bricks, which often varied in height, while metric bricks are generally 65mm high. For these reasons, the Radlington has been designed and engineered to be 55mm high, with a projection of 165mm, allowing for packing, expansion, baypole jacks and irregular mortar. Yet the first installations have reportedly shown that it is far quicker to install on site and a more robust cill option than a standard 30mm high by 150mm projection cill, which is designed more with PVC-U windows in mind. This new type of cill is available for the existing Solidor range in nine finishes including white, foiled white, cream, Chartwell green, Irish oak, golden oak, rosewood, grey and schwarzbraun black. There are also eight further finishes to match the colours of the latest Solidor/R9 composite door offering, with exclusive finishes such as silvered oak and painswick. Lee Williams, sales director of Solidor, said: “The Radlington is a true replacement of the traditional timber cill, yet with modern engineered materials and is structurally a great choice for a composite door installation. It’s a fundamental part of our strategy to offer our customers new and exciting products and the Radlington certainly fits the bill.” www.solidor.co.uk Five day delivery on mahogany KAT has announced that it can now offer a five day turnaround (plus next scheduled delivery day) on mahogany Elegance sliding patio doors.
