As a forward thinking fabricator with 20 years of experience in understanding installers’ needs, it was the next logical step at the end of 2011 for Tradelink to bring the fabrication of much requested aluminium products in house so that customers have the choice of high quality PVC-U and aluminium profile under one roof. Since then the trade fabricator has seen a huge rise in demand for its range of aluminium windows and doors, and so this year has been re-investing in the aluminium plant.
To celebrate the success of this side of the business, Tradelink took the decision to reward its loyal customers, offering an iPad mini to those who ordered £5,000 of goods in a three month period. The first customer to reach this milestone was Surrey-based 1st Glass Windows Ltd, a family run business that has been trading for some 16 years, and of those has been a Tradelink customer for 10.
Bruce Morley, Business Development Director at Tradelink presented the prize to Operations Manager at 1st Glass, Warren Dalton, who comments: “We’ve been working with Tradelink for 10 years now, and have always been very pleased with their high quality products, good service levels, customer service and excellent delivery times. We were already buying aluminium windows and doors for domestic applications from Tradelink and so the iPad mini was a great added incentive for us. I’m delighted 1st Glass was the first to win, and the iPad mini is already proving an invaluable selling tool after we uploaded images of recent installations onto it to show potential customers the scope of what we can deliver.”
Bruce adds: “We have always strived to ensure our customers get all the help and support that we can give them, not least when times have been tough. It is great to hear that the iPad mini is already coming in useful in helping 1st Glass gain new business. Many of our other customers are also ordering aluminium in their droves, so it won’t be long before we can present the next iPad mini – in fact we have at least another 10 presentations in the pipeline so watch this space!”
