Builders merchant Selco celebrated when one of its plasterboard customers won first prize in a Lafarge Plasterboard competition.
The competition was to promote Lafarge’s GTEC Aqua Board and tiler Luca Baldwin’s prize is to have his water bills paid for the next five years.
Bob Yates, Selco’s heavyside supervisor and Gary Danks, Lafarge Plasterboard sales representative, presented the award at Selco’s Tyseley branch in South Birmingham.
Collecting his prize, Baldwin said: “I’m delighted to have won the competition, and I’m also thrilled with Aqua Board itself. It’s really nice to use because it’s much easier to cut and install than cement based boards, so it saves time and money. It’s incredibly resistant to water – I even checked some off-cuts that had been left in a wet skip for weeks and they were absolutely fine. I’m glad I discovered it!”
Sioned Webb, trade marketing & communications manager of Lafarge Plasterboard, said: “Our GTEC Aqua Board has been designed to provide outstanding water, mould and fungus resistance, among its many qualities, and we wanted to play on this high performance capability as part of a competition to reward one of our lucky customers – congratulations Luca!
Simon Humpage, marketing manager for Selco, said: “The competition has had a great impact on sales, switching more people onto the benefits of Aqua Board as a result. Details of the next competition will be released in the near future.”
