NEW BUILD PROPERTY IN HEREFORDSHIRE BENEFITS FROM OPTIMA WINDOWS AND DOORS FROM PROFILE 22 Retail installer County Windows has just complet- ed the installation of 26 Optima windows, two sets of Optima French doors with side screens and a single Optima residential door in a stunning new build detached property in Herefordshire. Mitch Luckman, owner of County Windows, said: “We are delighted with the results of this build. It was a one-off development from local developer S A Lancett Carpentry and Building, who we have been working with since the business was formed over 15 years ago”. The spec of the project was extremely high end. The use of Optima in anthracite grey with white interior de- livered everything that was needed and more.” County Windows has been a Profile 22 installer for over 15 years and Mitch is clear how he feels about the Optima system: “It’s the best on the market. It’s great for consumers and it’s great for us as a business too.” Mitch says the Optima system’s aesthetics fit per- fectly with all house styles and it’s a very popular choice with consumers. Optima also offers ex- ceptional performance in energy efficiency, weather protection and security, to keep homes perfectly protected. As well as the aesthet- ics, Mitch also praises how easy Optima is to install: “The products are very uniform so the range suites together perfectly.” Mitch continues: “Optima is a well-designed system that is easy to sell, easy to install and offers a high- end finish every time. We couldn’t ask for anything more.” County Windows is a family-owned company based in Malvern, Worces- tershire. Its commitment to installing quality products at competitive and realistic prices has seen it become one of the area’s most trusted names. County Windows purchase their Optima Windows and Doors from their manufacturing partner Central RPL, one of the Midlands largest, trade fabricators. Martyn Elwell from Central RPL, commented: ”We are able to support our retail installers’ projects in the commercial and new build markets with our experi- ence and wide product of- fering. With Profile 22 as our partner, we feel it’s the perfect combination for in- stallers who are looking at entering these markets to complement their existing retail business.” Optima from Profile 22 was developed to give fabricators and installers everything they need to compete in the market. As Mitch’s comments and the results of the Hereford- shire development show, it’s certainly doing that for County Windows.
