Newly launched approval scheme

Eurocell has launched the Eurocell Select approved installer scheme, which aims to develop a trusted network of installers across the UK.

Eurocell’s new initiative, which is backed by Certass and Fensa, will allow installers of Eurocell windows and doors to gain certification following a training course, and aims to help tradespeople overcome what is often deemed a ‘cowboy image’ within the industry.

Free training will be held at various locations across the UK and will include both practical installation auditing to industry quality standards and classroom sessions, covering health and safety, use of PPE, and window and door installation/uninstallation.

Eurocell will also provide free product and installation training for all products covered within the scheme, plus tips to overcome common issues. Once trained and certified, installers will qualify for lead referrals, marketing support, dispute resolution and additional advice.

Chris Coxon, head of marketing at Eurocell, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching the Eurocell Select scheme, which will not only help recognise and reward quality installers, but also provide evidence of quality control so that homeowners can be reassured that installers are properly trained and care about doing a great job.”

Eurocell is looking to recruit 350 domestic trade installers and 60 specification installers – who will all receive free TrustMark accreditation – onto the scheme. Support can be offered to those wishing to transfer from existing schemes.
