A 25-Year Partnership Between VBH and Climatec

The Climatec Group & hardware distributor VBH recently celebrated 25 years of successful partnership. Climatec started manufacturing PVC-U windows at a small factory unit in Southend-on-Sea in 1993, and quickly established itself within the industry. 
In 2012 the company launched Alu-tec, an exclusive range of aluminium windows and doors. They now fabricate over 1,400 frames a week for trade customers throughout England, from 11 factory units spanning 50,000sq ft. Climatec relies on VBH for a range of high performance hardware solutions for both PVC-U and aluminium product lines. 
Steve Barker, Director at Climatec, says: “Having a good relationship is important to us. We’ve worked together for many years, building a successful partnership based on clear communication and trust. Product meetings, new product introductions and service discussions with key members of VBH help us ensure we provide the best service and the best quality products to our customers.” 
The companies windows and doors are fabricated using VBH’s suited greenteQ door and window handles, flag hinges and window locks. Climatec also sources Yale/Millenco locking systems, MACO window locks, Sigma hybrid hinges and BKV door thresholds from VBH.
Steve explains: “It makes sense for us to buy most of our hardware from one source and VBH is a true one-stop-shop. Our contact there, Jan Holland gives outstanding service. Face-to-face meetings are an important part of the relationship, building loyalty and efficiency; we know we can rely on their support. Twice weekly deliveries ensure we always have the correct products and quantity of stock to fabricate our windows and doors to the high quality our customers expect from us”.
