AND NOW FOR OUR PERSONALISED ACMEDA STORY…
big medium regular sized honchoes recently visited the Rollease Acmeda plant in Victoria in search of answers to many questions, some of which were window blind industry related. We asked Greg for his thoughts about the site for this newsletter and once he was told that we will protect him and pixelate parts of his privacy (and honestly people… he had no choice), he was more than happy to talk to us;
“….it was a very interesting experience. Their testing facility in particular was incredible, many systems and components are tested around the clock. We have seen firsthand the efforts to test and improve Acmeda Roller Blind Components, so we feel very confident that we are still offering a quality product.”
**A Seriously Important Note to Customers from Greg**
This visit has reinforced to us the necessity of booster springs when required.
Effective immediately, we will be including and charging for boosters in Roller Blinds automatically according to the specification.
➢ Customers may request not to have them however this will void the warranty of the blind.
➢ A Fabric Booster Calculator file (Excel) is available for your consultants to utilise for quotation purposes.
Please contact us if you have any questions or require information.

AND NOW FOR … A peeping-tom-like look into the life of a CBC Team Member
Picture of banana is for illustration purposes only.
This edition’s recipient of honour is Jenny!!!!!
Many of you would know our “JLo-from-around-the-block-many-times” as one of the first point of contact for your calls. Her knowledge in the blinds world is great, sadly however, her height is not.
An interesting fact? She is an expert in the study of all types of knots but whatever she and Gary like to do in their personal life is none of our business.
• Likes all furry and fluffy animals, she has a garage full of them.
• Likes hacking into NASA’s database when she needs extra space for her shoe cupboards.
• Loves creating all sorts of cute miniature voodoo dolls in her spare time.
Editor’s Note: Jenny’s lawyer has vigorously assured us that the recent spate of severe pins and needles running rife through CBC staff is no cause for alarm and purely coincidental.
