The project in question was the construction of an office building at an esteemed commercial complex in the city. The owner and developer of the project is Canara Bank and as part of the construction, three-hundred pairs of Cotswold’s HDA 24” friction stay, which is part of their heavy duty Fortis range, were incorporated in the top hung windows. To qualify for the contract the hardware had to be approved by the Indian government’s Central Public Works Department.
Cotswold’s Managing Director Iain Morgan comments: “As with any commercial project of this nature, exacting standards had to be met. The owners and developers of the project Canara Bank, the architects STUP consultants and a department of the Indian government all approved the specification of the HDA 24” friction stay. This is a powerful endorsement of the quality of product we offer and we’re delighted to have been selected on merit and to have once again met the strictest criteria.”
Canara Bank further stressed that a major factor of Cotswold winning the contract was the in-depth technical guidance they received from the Cheltenham based manufacturer. By supplying the hardware for the completed project, Cotswold has further strengthened its presence in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.
According to Iain everyone at Cotswold is delighted to be flying the flag for British manufacturing abroad: “It’s fantastic that Cotswold is winning contracts in India and selling British made products abroad; especially at a time when there is a renewed drive to encourage British manufacturers to sell their products around the world.”
