Never has a single issue caused the level of anxiety, stress, worry and concern across the entire globe: COVID-19. Every person, every business, every industry in every country is affected. UK fenestration is facing a challenge unlike anything else it has ever encountered.

No one has lived through what is unfolding, so whilst calm and preparedness is key, its easy to become concerned and worried about the situation. As we chart a new course in our lives and indeed fenestration businesses, I will try and provide a useful commentary of the things that are important to our industry. Some of it will be opinion, and will be marked as such. Some of it will be data and information. It will be the latest government guidelines.

It will also be the good news as well. There’s going to be plenty of sober news out there, but where there is good news, new opportunities and positivity, I will try and bring that to you as well.

Good luck to all, be well, be safe and be kind to each other.
