Sealco, leading independent distributor of window and door hardware, has completed a major refurbishment of its Falkirk HQ to support its exceptional service to customers.
The renovation includes a new trade counter and showroom, plus a significant expansion of the company’s offices. Meanwhile, the addition of a second warehouse has increased Sealco’s capacity to hold stock of more than 4,000 product lines.
Visitors to Sealco are now welcomed to a modern, eye-catching trade counter, which backs onto the office so that Sealco staff can immediately tend to customer needs. Frosted glass partitions allow customers a glimpse of the busy office environment behind the showroom.
“We’ve always been a friendly, transparent company and we wanted our premises to reflect that. Feedback from visitors has been really positive,” confirms Alan Malcolm, Sales Director at Sealco.
The new arrangement of the offices provides a clear, intuitive path between the company’s management, sales, customer service and accounts team.
“We’re growing fast and without careful planning that can lead to confusion and clutter. So we’ve rebuilt everything in a way that future-proofs us as we continue to develop.”
Crucially, the transformation also shows off some of Sealco’s extensive range. “We have fantastic solutions that add value for our customers, so we figured it made sense to use some of them ourselves,” Alan explains.
The showroom contains a carefully selected cross-section of products from the Sealco catalogue, including big names like Yale, MACO and GU as well as the in-house Endurance brand.
All interior doors have been made using Sealco’s new prepped composite door offering, displaying the unusual profiles that can be created and finished with high-quality hardware. Similarly, the main thoroughfare between offices and warehouse also benefits from a pocket door to make the optimum use of space.
The company has also acquired a second warehouse, increasing capacity by 15% as the company looks to fulfil its ambition to be the UK’s first choice for door and window hardware needs.
Alan confirms: “We now hold around £1m in stock at any time, meaning we can easily fulfil our commitment to next day delivery anywhere in mainland UK.”
