Mila is leading the congratulations for Sussex based PVC-U trade fabricator Tradesmith as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Tradesmith has been buying a large proportion of its hardware from Mila for much of those 25 years, and the partnership between the two companies is stronger than ever.

Mila’s Area Sales Manager Earl Tate said: “In the early 90s, Mila started out supplying Tradesmith with ProStyle window and door handles, but that has vastly expanded over the years to include our ProLinea and ProSecure handle ranges for windows, doors and patios, as well as twin-cam espags, strikers, shootbolts and hinges.

“They have achieved PAS24:2012 accreditation using Mila products, and our sales and technical team continue to work closely with them to help and advise on choosing and fabricating our hardware.

“Tradesmith is a company with a reputation for high quality products and first class service and we’re delighted to have played even a small part in their 25 years of success.”

Tradesmith currently produces more than 400 frames a week from its purpose built factory in Hailsham. It is a Halo approved fabricator and also manufactures in the Warmcore aluminium hybrid system.

Managing Director Mark Hutchinson added: “High quality suppliers like Mila continue to be vital to our plans. We are marking our 25th anniversary by acquiring an additional factory and we’ll certainly be looking to Mila to continue supporting us as we move into the next stage in our growth.”
