Rob was appointed in the interim after Roy Frost left the company at the end of last year. He has since led the team through 6-months of strong sales, spearheaded some exciting product launches to give customers the edge in the market and been instrumental in converting some well-known large fabricators to the brand.
and small depending on their individual requirements. This cultural shift has been recognised by customers too, with our most recent customer satisfaction survey showing high satisfaction levels.
“Deceuninck needed someone to step into the leadership role as soon as possible and I was happy to take on that responsibility,” says Rob. “In the 6 months since, there has been a cultural change. The focus is even more firmly placed on our existing customers and providing the support they need to grow their businesses. We’ve invested in joint marketing initiatives and tailored sales support across the board, for customers big
“Meanwhile more fabricators have seen precisely how we can help them differentiate against the competition with for example the perfect offering for the growing heritage market with our Heritage Window Collection, as well as our market beating colour offering of 26 colourways in stock for profile, ancillaries, cills and trims.

Distinction Doors launched its Retail Cottage Door and the four glazed door designs of the Rustic Renown Collection last year and has been accepting plaudits for them ever since.
The doors in the Rustic Renown Collection are the Renown, Renown Mid, Renown Top and Renown Diamond and all offer beautiful takes on the traditional cottage door with its small glazed area. Like the door slab, they all feature an oak woodgrain effect finish, something that enhances the heritage looks even further.
Bethaney Larkman, Marketing Manager, says: “Our Retail Cottage Door slab and the four doors in our Rustic Renown collection deliver beautiful heritage looks with the added reassurance of 21st century security because they are Secured By Design compliant, which also means they meet the requirements of Document Q.”
All of the doors are manufactured from Thermoset GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) and have stiles and rails composed of water-resistant polymer which is bonded to the skin and filled with an insulating core of 100% CFC-free polyurethane for exceptional weatherfastness.
Another standout feature of the doors lies in the colour. All five doors are available in six standard pre-pigmented colours, including popular favourites Anthracite Grey and Chartwell Green. Plus the glazing cassette of the doors in the Collection are through colour for a seamless and sophisticated match for the rest of the door. Bespoke colour is also available thanks to their state-of-the-art in-house paint plant.
There is no doubt that they are strong additions to the market and showcase Distinction’s reputation for doors that deliver on practical and beautiful detail.
