Fabricator Modplan and parent company Burles Group were right on cue when two of their directors made a date with snooker legend Steve Davis.
The six-times World Champion also works as brand ambassador Network VEKA, of which Modplan is a member, so when Group MD David Burles and Modplan Director Heidi Sachs heard he was playing nearby, they had to drop in and meet him.
“We’re all delighted at what Steve’s doing with Network VEKA,” said David.
“So we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to thank him in person.” Heidi added: “Steve has been to many trade events but this is the first chance we have actually had to meet him.”
David and Heidi caught up with Steve at Newport where he was playing Stephen Hendry in a heat of the Premier League ’08.
Steve has worked with Network VEKA for several years, endorsing the standards, guarantees and working practices it demands from member companies and recently signed to continue in the role for five more years.
Modplan supplies frames in all three VEKA Matrix systems – 58mm, 70mm and FS – as well as the Vertical Slider, Amulet Composite Door and its own Vertex tile-effect roof.
As well as Modplan, the Burles Group also includes National Plastics, distributing PVC-U roofline, guttering and downpipes, and National Roofing, distributing EPDM rubber roofing.
