Competition time: Target Windows celebrates 35th anniversary

Target Windows is celebrating 35 years in business.

The company is running a Facebook competition in March, where anyone living at a property with a combination of 3 and 5 in their property number can enter. The prize is a luxury M&S hamper worth £100. You can enter here.

The business is also asking people to challenge Target Windows to beat a quote for windows, doors and conservatories.

Company director Guy Basnett said: “We’re so proud of what we have achieved and to mark our 35th anniversary, we will be hosting a celebration event at our Stone showroom on the bank holiday weekend of May 5 and 6. Customers old and new will be invited and full details are being finalised.”

M&S hamper £100

 

The Meir Heath-based company was established in 1983 by businessman Alan Tune, who manufactured windows for a local double-glazing firm.

But Alan found himself with a factory full of machinery and no customers after the firm he was supplying went out of business.

He opened a small showroom in Radford Street, Stone, where his sister Jane and his wife Sylvia would make appointments for Alan to see customers who required quotes for windows, doors and conservatories.

As demand increased, Jane assisted with sales appointments, and the small showroom was soon outgrown. Target relocated to its current home at The Filleybrooks in Stone and expanded into Uttoxeter.

In 2002, current company director Guy Basnett joined the team, after marrying Jane in 1999. His experience in sales opened up the commercial market. Alan’s brother Mick is also part of the management team and has many years of experience in the industry. The family business has gone from strength to strength.

Mr Basnett said: “It’s a very exciting time for Target. We are now focusing on securing commercial contracts throughout the UK on new build sites, schools, animal re-homing projects and refurbishment projects.

“Many new products are set to be introduced to the existing range as the domestic market continues to evolve, to meet the demand of our many clients wanting to maximise their living space.”

Stoke-on-Trent window company boss ‘jailed’ to raise cash for hospice

The boss of a family-run window company has spent a day locked in a prison cell to raise over £1,800 for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

Guy Basnett, director of Meir Heath-based Target Windows, was picked up by uniformed officers and bundled into the back of a police van on Wednesday after signing up to take part in the hospice’s 2018 Jail or Bail Challenge.

Mr Basnett spent Valentine’s Day in a cell at the disused Magistrates Court in Fenton, along with David Webster, CEO of Douglas Macmillan Hospice, Ian Walker, director of Fifteen Group, and Dave Meakin, a driver at Jones & Shuffs.

He said: “I was made to wear a white jumpsuit over my puffer jacket, so I looked like Michelin Man, then stuffed into the back of a police van in a cage.

“We all had our finger prints taken and then we were put into a dark, dank prison cell. We were allowed our phones, so we could plead for donations to secure our freedom. It went really well, and some of my mates were offering to donate more to keep me in there! I’d like to thank everyone who donated. I think the Dougie Mac has raised £4700 so far.”

The Jail or Bail campaign marked the 45th anniversary of the hospice providing local care to local people. The money will go towards the cost of funding the services provided by the Dougie Mac at the hospice in Blurton and across the North Staffordshire community.

You can still donate by visiting jailorbail.everydayhero.com/uk/target-windows, calling 01782 398021 or popping into a Target Windows showroom in Stone or Uttoxeter.

Stoke window company films Christmas sing-along video

Target Windows is hoping to spread some Christmas cheer by releasing a video which sees staff don Santa suits and belt out a festive hit.

Employees attached fake beards, grabbed inflatable guitars and adjusted their Santa hats at the firm’s Meir Heath factory to record a unique version of Slade’s Merry Xmas Everybody on Tuesday morning.

They were joined by Christmas angel, production director Mick Tune, who braved the cold in white tights and a yellow wig.

He said: “It was a very cold morning, but it was all good fun and seeing me dressed as an angel certainly gave the lads a laugh. We hope the video makes people smile too.”

The video went live today and is being shared on social media. It will be displayed at Target’s showrooms in Stone and Uttoxeter.

Guy Basnett, director of Target Windows, said: “The idea came on the back of last year’s Christmas video, which was The Twelve Days of Christmas. Loads of people commented on how much they enjoyed it, so we wanted to do another this year, only do a funny take on a pop hit.

“It was certainly a laugh – the lads won’t be making it into the charts any time soon; they’re much better at fitting windows than they are at singing!”

Target also took the opportunity to announce its support for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, as a corporate partner. The company will be taking part in the charity’s Jail or Bail challenge, which will see Target raise £2,000 for the hospice.

*** WIN ***

To celebrate the release of the video, Target Windows is running a Facebook competition to give people the chance to win a luxury Christmas hamper from Il Gusto Trentham. To enter, just like and comment on the post here. Usual Ts & Cs apply.

Target is offering another chance to win a prize this festive season. Anyone who books a January 2018 installation this month will get huge savings on new doors, windows, a conservatory or an orangery.

On top of that, one lucky winner will receive £100 in Love2shop vouchers.  Winners will be announced on February 1, 2018. Usual Ts & Cs apply.

For more information call 01782 398021 or pop into a Target Windows showroom in Stone or Uttoxeter.
