Customade Group, the market-leading fenestration business, has become a Corporate Patron of construction industry charity CRASH, pledging to provide materials and support construction and refurbishment projects of homelessness charities and hospices across the UK.
The objective of CRASH is to help people who are homeless and sleeping rough, and adults and children who need end of life care in a hospice by constructing or refurbishing hospices, shelters and move-on accommodation that can make such a difference to their lives.
The CRASH team does this by co-ordinating skills, time, materials, financial support and technical expertise from across the construction industry, with resources supplied by some of the biggest companies operating in the sector. In this way the now, 37 Corporate Patron companies of the charity underpin every project CRASH undertakes.
Customade Group supplies a full range of fenestration systems from UPVc windows and doors, composite doors, to roof lantern and conservatory systems in UPVc and aluminium through its recognised industry brands of Atlas, Polyframe, Virtuoso Doors, and Real Aluminium. The group also has its own distribution network with national coverage, Stevenswood.
With more than 850 employees across the UK, this places the Customade Group in an excellent position to assist CRASH with projects of any size and urgency.
Rachel Smith, Group Marketing Director, Customade Group said: “We are excited to join the CRASH cause as a committed patron for 2023. During our discussions with the team we have been able to identify several ways we can support the work of CRASH and we are looking forward to meeting their project co-ordinators.
“Windows, doors and fenestration of the highest quality are essential to the success of most refurbishment, maintenance or new-build projects and Customade Group can offer a ready supply of standard products and systems, or work with the CRASH team to deliver customised solutions.”
