SWITCHING MADE EASY »»WHEN IT COMES TO THE TRADE there is still a lot of trepidation when changing suppliers. It comes down to simply, ‘Can they do what they say; will they deliver on time as promised? These are just two of the reasons why companies remain with the same supplier, even though they could make savings by changing. When it comes to window and door reinforcement, there is added pressure that their systems company, as part of a package, supplies some companies direct. This does not give any alternative in gaining a competitive edge. “We are faced with many questions from prospective new clients in regards to their reinforcement supplies,” comments James Lister, Operations Director at Anglo European. “Reinforcement is a central element needed in the fabrication of PVCu windows and doors, a simple late delivery or wrong order and production would grind to a halt. Therefore customers have to be assured that we can deliver and fulfil on our promise, and we also have the capacity to deal with their orders large or small. The simple answer is YES, and that’s a promise we make to all our customers.” ‘the simple answer is YES’ Partnership Extended »»LEADING TRADE FABRICATOR and supplier, Unique Door Pan
