UPVC Maintenance Supplies help an Open Day in order to celebrate 25 years in operation as well as to raise money for the company’s two chosen charities. The event was conceived by Emma Earnshaw, the Finance Manager of the Supplier for windows and doors repairs.
The charities that were chosen to be the recipients of the funds raised as part of the Open Day were Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Leeds Rhinos Foundation. On offer were cakes and competitions as well as the traditional wet sponge throw, with the counter staff of UPVC Maintenance the poor targets. The Open Day managed to raise £1,000 for the two charities, a great way to celebrate the company’s silver anniversary.
UPVC Maintenance is a family business, operated by David Earnshaw, his wife Karen and their daughter Emma. David started off his career working in maintenance and repair before noticing the demand that the market had for the supply of hardware that is then used by fitters in order to complete the repairs. David then rented warehousing space and started to try meet that demand. The company has since thrived, with the first formal trade counter being opened in 2005 in Pudsey, before moving to Birstall in 2010 and the stoppage of the repair service in 2011, with UPVC Maintenance Supplies focusing on offering the hardware while recommending a network of colleagues to carry out the works for the customer. The company has since opened a Rotherham base, in 2012.
UPVC Maintenance Supplies has worked throughout their 25 years in operation to support the local community, so it was no surprise that they decided to celebrate this amazing anniversary with a fundraising event for two deserving charities. Other companies from the local area were also eager to take part in the Open Day, contributing prizes such as a bottle of gin, spa vouchers and theme park tickets.
The success of this family business is a credit to the hard work of David Earnshaw and all of those working at UPVC Maintenance Supplies. Let’s hope the next 25 years are just as successful.
