Manchester-based City Glass & Window Systems was the customer to pass the three-figure milestone and Glazerite’s Peter Smith and Amy Grundy, the Scheme’s National Sales Manager, were on hand to mark the occasion with a bottle of bubbly and Welcome Pack for City’s Warren Cahill.

More than 300 installers have already joined the scheme, which includes tailored marketing material via a dedicated marketing hub, quality consumer leads, technical support and much more, with membership of the scheme completely free of charge.

Director Jason Thompson said: “Glazerite offers its customers a very powerful support package combining our own extensive offering with a number of recognised trade schemes. The VEKA approved installer scheme has really taken off, it has been welcomed by our customers and we are delighted with the positive response it has received.

Through Glazerite, installers also have a route to numerous alternatives including the entire Network VEKA package, which in our opinion is still the best there is. There are a number of exciting additions planned for the Network VEKA package in 2015 so there really is no better time for any installer to take a serious look at it.”

He concluded: “There has been a lot of talk in the industry about the pros and cons of such schemes, it is impossible to have one solution that fits all. Our customers can pick and choose what parts of our support package suits their own business best and I genuinely believe we have something to offer everyone.”

Glazerite is VEKA’s largest trade fabricator in the UK as well as a prominent and long-standing Network VEKA member. It offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants and Greater Manchester as well as a distribution hub in Bristol serving South Wales and The West of England.
