3 Wintech Directors to attend BAU 2019 in Munich

We are pleased to announce we will be attending BAU 2019 (14th – 19th January) in Munich.

Our Technical Director, Mike Wass, Sales & Marketing Director, Steve Bramhill and our Managing Director, Gailord Nepp will be attending to take on the many networking opportunities, as well as witnessing the countless exciting product launches the show has to offer.

We believe BAU is one of the most important international trade shows for the fenestration and facade industries, due to the effort and innovation that goes into each stand and each product launch. Investing in time for attendance is a must for us, as we recognise it as an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities of our industry on an international scale, including the benefits of product certification such as our UKAS Accredited WinMark Scheme for the Enhanced Security of Windows & Doors (including PAS 24:2016 testing) and our Scheme for the Performance of Curtain Walling and Rainscreen Cladding Products.

If you’re interested in arranging a meeting with Gailord, Mike or Steve, then call 07771920948, or email gnepp@wintechtesting.com

Wintech invests in the next generation

Wintech, have consistently proven ourr dedication to investing in the future of the industry by employing apprentices. In 2018, we hired three new apprentices, with two training in all of our testing departments, and one working towards an NVQ in Business Administration.
The apprentices can look forward to a career with us after completing their training. Several members of our full time staff began their career in the same way, including our own Technical Director, Mike Wass who started as an apprentice in the test laboratory 17 years ago.
Our Managing Director, Gailord Nepp says “Education is important, and Wintech believes in investing in its staff to ensure they’re confident in their role. Our apprentices work on a rotation basis, in every department of the organisation – from testing Windows & Doors to PAS 24, to writing up reports and other administrative tasks, as well as testing at our state-of-the-art curtain wall and façade facility and working with our onsite department on projects around the country. Our aim is to ensure our apprentices know every aspect of Wintech, to not only secure their future, but to secure the future of Wintech too”.

Aviramp test is a first for Wintech!

In a first for Wintech, we recently conducted a wind test on Telford-based aeroplane ramp manufacturer, Aviramp.

Our DC6 aircraft engine whipped up winds of over 50mph in an attempt to shift the structure, but we’re pleased to say the ramp withstood the gusts!

TAL Engineering Pass Recent Surveillance Audit

Bulgaria-based fabricator, TAL Engineering achieved our Secured by Design-recognised WinMark™ Certification for the Enhanced Security of Windows & Doors earlier this year, and during a recent surveillance audit they demonstrated their excellent facilities and ongoing dedication to growth and improvement.

We’re proud to be the Certification Body of choice for TAL Engineering, as their firm principles and dedication to their work aligns with our own company ethos. When asked how the WinMark helped them, TAL Engineering’s Director, Mark Newberry told us:

“To be recognised with the Certification for Enhanced Security of Windows and Doors by M/s Wintech, has not only assisted our company in improving the Quality Assurance and Control Procedures within TAL Engineering in the design and fabrication of approved systems, giving us a competitive advantage; it has also opened doors further for our exisiting and potential UK customers to succeed in the award of SBD Certified Projects. Wintech’s meticulous service and exemplary professional attitude has and will continue to be felt in the growth of TAL Engineering.”

We thank TAL Engineering for choosing Wintech, and look forward to working with them again in 2019!

Wintech host University of West England CWCT students

We recently hosted students from the University of the West of England at our Telford testing facility. The students are studying degrees in facade engineering, and work closely with the CWCT. At our facilities, they witnessed demonstrations in our glass testing department, as well as the use of our aircraft engine in a CWCT Sequence B Dynamic test.
