Liniar, the innovative and increasingly popular brand of uPVC products, is on its way to become a household name due to a stream of appearances on national television.
HL Plastics, Liniar’s trading company, was selected by BBC News to take part in the headline story of the day on 28th July 2015, in a report about an increase in the UK’s quarterly Gross Domestic Product results and the success driven by manufacturing firms now the recession is over.
HL Plastics was chosen as an ideal example of a British industry success story due to its consistent growth through difficult economic times.
Extensive factory and vehicle footage was used to illustrate the news story, which featured in the lunchtime, 6 o’clock and 10 o’clock news slots, along with a short interview with CEO Roger Hartshorn.
“It was an honour for our company to be chosen to highlight the upturn in the UK’s GDP,” said Roger about his appearance.
“Manufacturing is the lifeblood of this country and we’re proud to be helping to lead the way with the economic recovery.”
Hot on the heels of appearing on the national news, Liniar windows featured heavily in the BBC 2 programme ‘The House That £100k Built’ on August 4.
The show followed South Lincolnshire couple Andrew and Jo’ann Thompson’s attempts to not only build a house from scratch for less than £100k, but for the house to never generate a heating or electricity bill. The couple chose Liniar’s energy efficient triple glazed windows to help with the ambitious project.
In response to a Liniar tweet the morning after the programme aired, Andrew wrote: “@Liniarprofiles the windows are great, the triple glazing enhances our building’s performance so much!”
Still to be aired is a Liniar fabricator’s charitable involvement with BBC 1 show ‘DIY SOS – The Big Build’. Answering an appeal for Derbyshire companies to assist in a major construction project, Langley Mill-based Glazedale offered its services.
Filmed in mid-April, Glazedale’s installation team spent five days on site fitting all of the windows and doors as Nick Knowles and his crew built an extension to the home of a family with a severely disabled child. Read the full story HERE.
