Composite door manufacturer Apeer is enjoying success in the north of the United Kingdom as new and existing installer partners across Scotland broaden their product ranges.
In August 2019, the company entered into a new partnership with Dunfermline based SRJ Windows. Following a recommendation, MD Stephen Macintosh contacted Apeer’s sales team and arranged to visit their premises in Northern Ireland for a first-hand glimpse of their extensive composite door range. Highly impressed, Stephen quickly commissioned the introduction of five products into his showroom:
“SRJ Windows was looking for a new composite door to offer, and particularly one with a high spec” he said. “Given our geographical location, many of our customer’s homes are at the mercy of North Sea winds bringing Scandinavian temperatures. Therefore, it was vital that the products we chose were well made and able to sustain the Scottish elements. We have taken on the 70mm double rebated doors which guarantee thermal efficiency by utilising different types of hinges and locks. The range is attractive, and customers seem to be enjoying the new products we have to show them.”
Stephen speaks with high regard too, of the staff at Apeer, and the assistance given to enable a successful product launch. He commented: “Due to their size, Apeer can offer support at a level that smaller suppliers can’t. There is a definite feel that they aren’t scared to put money into making sure their name is out there and have provided us with absolutely everything we needed to showcase the doors in their best light.”
“People buy from people” he continued, “and Mark Neville, our point of contact at Apeer, has been excellent - from the first time we spoke, his knowledge and expertise in this area have embedded a great working relationship. We are currently in receipt of multiple deliveries per week, and it won’t be long before we expand our showroom range further.”
