Good effort Ian!

We’re delighted to report that Ian Goodenough, SIG Roofing Sales Development Manager for the South, finished the 2018 Cape Wrath Ultra in an absolutely fantastic 59 hours, 18 minutes and 26 seconds. To put his achievement into perspective, of the 177 people who started, 110 managed to finish and Ian did incredibly well to come home in 20th place – no mean feat. In the process he has so far raised £1927 for Prostate Cancer UK. Well done Ian!


 
 

 

 

SIG UK Exteriors ViP scheme winner

James Miller, Sales & Trade Counter Supervisor at SIG Roofing Great Yarmouth was recently announced as the annual winner of the SIG UK Exteriors ViP scheme.

James identified areas where three previous customers had had some issues and he had to pull out all the stops to solve them. It was this determination to go the extra mile and find the right solution for each individual customer that set James apart and meant he won the award.

He also didn’t let small details like not being able to drive stop him – he asked one of our Sales Directors to give him a lift to all the meetings!

James demonstrated that customers are at the heart of everything SIG Roofing staff do and he did a great job in making sure the customers came first.

Here’s a word from James on what the award means: “I was blown away by this award; the way I saw it, I was just doing my job and doing what was required to help regain the customers confidence in us. For that to be recognised at such a high level was unreal! If anything it has motivated me even more and also increased my confidence in the workplace.’’

New look SIG Roofing branches open their doors following major refurbishment

The transformation of SIG Roofing branches up and down the country continues with four more branches recently completing their refurbishment. The revamped shop floors in Leigh-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea, Bishops Waltham and Sittingbourne are helping customers get a much better feel for the extensive range of products available. The changes also create the right environment for the branches to continue to improve the service they provide, ensuring customers have the products they need when they need them.

Each branch held a special open day to celebrate completion of the work with local contractors invited down to see the improvements. There were a number of special offers on each day as well as refreshments and bacon butties (Sittingbourne even had a burger van!)

As David Platt, Branch Manager at Leigh-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea said: “The building industry is a people business, so we wanted to give something back by holding a special grand opening event to thank people for their ongoing support. I’d like to thank all those that came down to support us.” A sentiment shared by all the branches, who are looking forward to enjoying the new refurbishments with their customers.
