The Cheltenham based company supplied 1450 pairs of its HD10 R friction stays into PVCu windows and swing and sliding doors for the building of a villa complex in Vancouver, Canada.
The overseas project is the latest in a long line for Cotswold, who is the preferred friction stay supplier for many high-profile constructions across the globe.
Iain Morgan, who is Cotswold’s Managing Director, comments: “This was a particularly interesting project as many other companies didn’t want to commit time and resources to deliver a bespoke solution.
“But it was not only about time and price, because we designed and built a bespoke solution that had the characteristics they needed for that specific project, such as the size of the stay and that it had to be a resistant product made of good steel.
“We grabbed the opportunity with both hands and worked with our partners to meet the requirements specified, on time and with the high quality solutions required.”
Cotswold worked together with the contractor LS Windows and the supplier Siegenia Aubi Co Ltd to deliver the project.
Aera Kwon, a spokesperson for Siegenia comments: “The project managers didn’t specify what you would call a standard design and many of our, and Cotswold’s competitors, couldn’t come up with a relevant solution for the project.
“But together we managed to offer an innovative solution and also offered them a special net price and imported the hardware by air to meet their strict deadline. Cotswold were crucial in this process and the product support, knowledge and service they provided was first class.”
As well as being involved in projects worldwide, Cotswold also regularly create bespoke solutions for fabricators across the UK, including some of the industry’s most well-known names such as Polyframe and Safestyle; Metal Technology and Kawneer.
