The 60-year-old is a regular customer at CTD’s Dundee branch and started tiling 40 years ago after completing a four-year tiling apprenticeship.

Gordon and his team of fixers work throughout Tayside and Fife primarily with housebuilders on new build developments and is a regular user of BAL tile adhesives and grouts.

He said: “I’m a big fan of BAL and have been using them for a long as I can remember. I use BAL Rapidset Flexible and BAL Superflex grouts – and I’ve never experienced a problem, it’s always good gear.

“When Kenny McCracken the Branch Manager at CTD Dundee told me I won, it came as a complete surprise as I never expected to win just through buying BAL.

“Winning the new van will ensure my team are fully up-to-speed and can continue to provide the very best service to our customers. I’d like to thank BAL and CTD for this fantastic prize.”

The Ford Transit Connect was presented to Gordon by Allan Mann, CTD Scotland Operations Manager and Craig Sinnamon, BAL Area Sales Manager for Scotland.

To be in with a chance of winning the van, fixers had to spend £150 on BAL products at CTD in three consecutive months. CTD Trade Loyalty Card Holders got double entry into the competition, while members of BAL’s YOU+BAL Partnership Programme were given three entries.

Alex Underwood, Head of Marketing for BAL said: “We are delighted to continue our backing for distributors and fixers through competitions like this one. It’s great to be able to support tilers and help add value to their businesses, while helping the distributor to engage and reward their loyal customers.”

Congratulations also to the five winners of a £250 bundle of BAL products:

CF Jones & Sons – Chester, Scott Pearce – Bristol, 100% Tiling – Edinburgh Temple Park, C P S Ceramic Tiling – Norwich, Andy Richardson Floor & Wall Tiling – Cambridge 
Each qualifying branch that had customers who spent £150 in 3 consecutive months also had 1 winner who won their weight in adhesive.
