Network VEKA hosts another fantastic AGM and Awards Evening!
Around 240 people attended Network VEKA’s ever-popular AGM and Awards Evening in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Attendees were able to visit the day’s specially-built ‘Business Centre’ where numerous companies and industry bodies were on hand to answer questions and give suggestions on all aspects of business; from finance and training to marketing and more. Visitors were particularly interested in Network VEKA’s new training offering – the Network VEKA Academy.
Network VEKA’s MD John Ogilvie was joined on stage by Compere John Meredith to present the official AGM. John was quick to praise the many successes of the membership: “It was a record year on a number of measures… ￡64 million pounds worth of products fitted, in almost 18000 installations, which is up 9% over the previous highest registration total. That’s ￡1.25 million fitted per week!
“Installations of VEKA products are up around 18%, which is more than two and a half times the market growth rate.
“Around £880 million has been installed since Network VEKA was formed and average installed values are the highest for six years. All of this…. and still customer satisfaction rates remain around 97%!”
John explained that The VEKA UK Group’s MD, Dave Jones, had been welcomed as Chairman of the Network VEKA Board and invited him to say a few words.
Dave Jones also congratulated the membership and articulated how proud he was of the support offering from The VEKA UK Group: “As Managing Director of The VEKA UK Group, people might say I’m biased…. but I genuinely believe that – between Network VEKA and the Approved Installer Scheme – we offer a scale of support that can’t be matched in the industry.
“Network VEKA is the pinnacle organisation for installers in the glazing trade.
“Myself and the team at VEKA remain committed to helping promote the Network and to building upon its sterling reputation. I couldn’t be more impressed by all that has been achieved over the last 12 months: record-breaking sales…. record registrations…. and more milestones than ever before. You should all be very proud of yourselves. We couldn’t promote the Network in the way that we do, without all your hard work.”
With the day’s event rounded off – flower power, flares and platforms were the order of the evening!
The evening began with a Champagne Reception before the Awards were announced by Network VEKA Brand Ambassador Steve Davis.
