Now being distributed by a multitude of renowned industry distributors, including; VBH, Window Ware, Building Profiles, Quay Plastics, GBP (General Building Plastics), Shepherds Plastic Building Products, Venture Building Plastics, GAP and Protrade, the range has been designed with the installer in mind, to give them complete convenience. Sales have seen significant growth, with at least one trade counter a week, on average, signing up to supply the product range and trade counters using the ‘free trade counter displays’, provided by Glazpart are seeing increases in turnover in excess of £500 per week, on each trade counter. Since launch the product range has doubled as demand has driven product development. The flat packer maybe a traditional standard product, however Glazpart offers an inclusive range through its distribution network, saving tradespeople time and space buying in smaller packs. The flat packer helps to align window or door glass units, and is essential to ensuring doors are toe and heeled correctly and professionally, avoiding call backs. The packers can be bought in bulk or through ‘Packers for Professionals’ partners, available in small packs. These convenience packs are aimed at installers and are available from 9mm to 32mm widths and come in handy packs of 100, or in mixed packs of 100s or 500s. A mixed packer option is also available to tradespeople, with the four key sizes mixed in the flat packers; these sizes are 24, 28, 30 and 32mm. All of the flat packers are colour coded 1mm to 6mm heights, the ease and versatility of the range have made them a great success story, with trade counter after trade counter signing up to supply the plastic components. Glazpart prides itself in being able to offer a ‘one stop shop’ solution for all window and door fabrication and installation component needs.
