A Plus Aluminium launches trade stock service

A Plus Aluminium has launched an upgraded residential trade stock service to support fast lead times and lower costs on eight window and door products.

The products are: Crown 98 and 120 sliding doors; PlusGlide 47 sliding door; Crown hinged door; bi-folding doors, Crown casement (75) including the flush option, and heritage windows and doors.

Most of the stock products are available in four colour options – anthracite, white, black and white/anthracite. The offer is for a dedicated range of profiles only.

The specialist trade fabricator says it has launched the service to support its customers in meeting increasing consumer demand.

The stocked products are manufactured at the company’s manufacturing and storage facility in Sandy, Bedfordshire, which opened last year as part of a long-term, strategic investment plan. These additional premises have enabled A Plus to increase capacity and capitalise on consumer interest in aluminium.

Unlike the A Plus headquarters in Watford which now mainly services the company’s commercial projects and customers, the Sandy factory manufactures aluminium window and door products specifically for trade residential customers.

Joint MD of A Plus Aluminium, Jon Palethorpe said: “We can commit all three CNC machines at Sandy to producing products for the residential market, without interruption. And we have invested in substantial stock holding which means we can offer a fast turnaround and low lead times.

“It’s a valuable initiative with great potential. We’re excited to already see the immediate impact for our customers and their businesses – having ready access to superior aluminium products.”

A Plus has also produced specific stock order forms and profile charts showing the sections available.  The order process is said to be more streamlined and benefits from a new online pricing facility.
