Tradesmith Join The Residence Collective
Hailsham-based Tradesmith are the latest trade manufacturer to join The Residence Collection, with a dedicated new factory to serve the South East with direct supply and support of R7 and R9 windows and doors.
This new factory looks more akin to a large joinery workshop, thanks to the benches and milling machines, and Tradesmith is fully mechanically jointing all windows and doors from The Residence Collection. With full set-up and technical support provided, this new manufacturing partner is also building a split-level showroom, so visiting installers and developers can appreciate the full range.
With a number of prestigious postcode areas and conservation areas in the South East, the company believe that they will be able to exploit the swing away from typical white windows with R7 and tackle the timber sector head on with R9. They will also be supplying the newly re-launched R9 Solidor range of premium composite doors to complement the windows.
Mark Hutchinson, MD commented: ‘In the South East, the trend to colour and high-end quality windows and doors has been particularly strong. Homeowners and developers are looking for more choice of colour and style, and a more attractive range of premium quality products. After a comprehensive review we chose to partner The Residence Collection with their stunning windows and doors. We invested in a new factory unit dedicated to making them to a high specification with mechanical joints and glass bonding. It’s early days, but the response from customers has been very positive, and we’ve already opened doors to new prospects.’
