Providing leading tools to leading tradespeople for almost 30 years

As one of the UK’s largest trade counter brands, we have become well-known within fenestration, construction and architectural circles as the ‘go-to’ trade counter, wholeheartedly committed to sourcing new products and services tailored to meet the needs of an evolving industry. Our journey began back in 1992, where we stocked a few simple trims from our humble operation in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. Progressing exponentially year-on-year, we’re proud to have advanced into a fully national operation with various well-stocked trade counters located around the country; renowned for professional quality, leading brands & customer satisfaction. Much of our success is thanks to our enthusiastic & diligent team members via their outstanding product knowledge, relentless ‘can-do’ approach and absolute dedication to the cause.

Time-honoured service, dedicated to helping your business grow

Loyally serving installers, house-builders, architects and everyone else in-between, our customers fully appreciate our comprehensive selection of planet-friendly & easy to install product systems coupled with our industry-leading turnaround times. Furthermore, alongside our efficient next day delivery service, we’ve even been known to open trade counters on a Sunday for large orders that simply can’t wait until Monday – how’s that for service?!
