At the start of 2012, Mila’s newly launched ProLinea Twin Cam Espag was chosen by leading trade fabricator Sterling PVC-U for its range of PVC-U casement windows fabricated in the Halo Eclipse system.
One year on, Sterling is reporting real success with the product which has impressed its trade customers and which has been integrated seamlessly into its three production facilities in Warrington.
Managing Director Neil Messenger said: “We manufacture around 1200 frames per week and demand the highest quality and service from our suppliers. Mila has shown that it can match our very exacting standards and, as well as maintaining the very best product quality and performance, it has achieved On Time In Full delivery scores in excess of 99%.
Sterling PVC-U chose the new ProLinea Twin Cam Espag in line with its strategy of keeping pace with the latest market innovations for the benefit of its customers. Mila’s Secured by Design accredited product offers twin pinion technology and a robust, reverse action gearbox which provides an impressive combination of smooth operation and durability to delight consumers and minimise call backs.
Neil Messenger added: “Before we started to fabricate using the new Twin Cam, Mila provided all the reassurance we needed that it was approved to the enhanced performance requirements of BS7950 and had achieved 50,000 cycles to ensure operational reliability and 240 hours of salt spray testing to ensure weather resistance.
“Since then, it has proved fast and easy to fabricate and, on site, it has impressed our customers with its quality and reliability.”
Since Sterling PVC-U was established in 1993, the company has built an outstanding reputation for high quality products manufactured using components from market leading suppliers, combined with exceptional service levels and value for money prices.
Neil Messenger said: “Our prices are achieved almost entirely through our lean infrastructure and manufacturing efficiency – we do not compromise on quality or on service. As a result our customers’ expectations are very high and we work hard with all of our suppliers to ensure that we can always deliver on the promises we make.
“Mila was already supplying us with specialist gearing from Siegenia for our bi-fold and patio doors and had shown that it could meet the service levels we expect and, with the addition of the ProLinea Twin Cam, we are strengthening what is now a very successful partnership.”
Sterling PVC-U manufactures PVC-U windows, bi-fold, composite and patio doors in Halo profile, as well as bi-folds, patios and residential doors in the Smart aluminium system. The company, which supplies trade customers predominantly across the Midlands and North of the country, celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2013.
