Although more companies are tentatively expanding their business now the market is in recovery, this hasn’t been the norm in the last 12 months. Tradelink has remained proactive and MD Jim Moody talks to the Installer magazine about its strategy to expand through trade counters.
Expanding from the centre
Tradelink is a true world class manufacturer and follows the principles of this discipline very closely. This means we are committed to continuous improvement – so however good things are and however well things are going, every member of our staff is encouraged to look for and suggest ways we can do things better. One of the biggest changes to our business in recent years has been the expansion of our product range – we are well known as a Rehau fabricator but Tradelink is now so much more. We make Kommerling and Rehau PVC-U doors and windows as well as Smart aluminium windows and bi-fold doors, a range of Ultraframe and Global conservatories and our own range of Regiment composite doors and Heatguard sealed units.
A world class manufacturer of one of the widest ranges of windows, doors, sealed units and conservatories in the UK, Tradelink has invested in excess of £50,000 in crucifix welding to further improve quality and efficiency across its profile range.
Tradelink, world class manufacturer of one of the widest ranges of windows, doors, sealed units and conservatories in the UK, welcomes industry veteran John Tennant as Manufacturing Manager.
“John joins us with an impressive CV which includes senior positions at leading joinery and PVC-U window companies,” explains Jim Moody, Tradelink’s Managing Director. “As Manufacturing Manager John will be responsible for the machinery as well as the teams working in the factories. This new role will also serve to support Mark White, Operations Director who will now be able to focus on the overall planning and scheduling across our sites.”
