Award-winning trade fabricator Quickslide wowed FIT Show visitors on its ‘Brick-By-Brick’-themed stand that continued the company’s commitment to ‘partnership’ with its trade customers, by introducing exciting new products as well as initiatives designed to grow business together.
Quickslide gained a reputation 15 years ago for pioneering affordable, replacement vertical sliders so when the company adds a new box sash system to its range, we have to take notice: but it’s so new that Quickslide were being very tight lipped about the product, despite it being on the stand. But if looks are anything to go by, it’s a cracker and well worth looking at when more details become available.
Quickslide now offers the renowned Deceuninck Flush as part of its heritage offer and in Agate Grey, the version seen at the FIT Show showed the window in what must be regarded as one of the best hues for this window. And continuing with PVC-U the company drew attention to its in-house bending expertise by showing its True Arch VS that shows no visible welds in the outer frame It looked especially attractive in grey woodgrain, which again was added in-house.
Adding a full suite of windows and doors in aluminium has brought excellent returns to Quickslide and an aluminium flush sash shown in anthracite drew a great deal of interest, as might be expected by showing the hottest style of window in this increasingly favoured material. Also in aluminium, Quickslide’s upmarket aluminium designer residential door in a superb textured ‘Sensations’ finish drew a lot of attention.
All products offered by Quickslide are covered by the company’s comprehensive ‘Brick by Brick’ partnering philosophy, that Chairman Adrian Barraclough took time out to explain: “At Quickslide, we know that we are built on the successes of our trade partners,” says Adrian, “and to help them achieve these successes we know that we need to be more than just a reliable supplier. The best way for us to stimulate the growth of our trade partners, and Quickslide, is to invest our time and resources in the continuous development of each individual partner company. That’s why we explained our philosophy at the FIT Show using the ‘Brick by Brick’ theme, with the bricks representing the elements we believe are fundamental in supporting the growth and development of our valued trade partners.
“When partnering with Quickslide, “continued Adrian, “customers immediately gain access to the wealth of knowledge and experience that we’ve spent more than 15 years building up, brick by brick. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a small or large window company, we’ll care for you, support you and build a great business with you. We want to help all of our trade partners to become the best they can be.”
