Milestone birthday

Qualplas celebrates three decades of business this year. The milestone will be marked with a wide range of activities and customer giveaways throughout the year.

Qualplas chose The Veka UK Group as its supplier of PVCU profile just one year into trading, before joining Network Veka.

In January 2016, ST Group– the parent company of Qualplas – was taken over by Huws Gray, the largest independent builders merchants in Wales and the north west of England. Largely the company has continued as previously, albeit with a slight change in the management team. One major change, however, is the amount of miles the Qualplas delivery vehicles are now covering, particular within north Wales, resulting in an ever-widening customer base.

Aron McMahon, manager at Qualplas, said: “There have been many highlights for Qualplas since 1987, mainly growing from small premises in Peasley Cross to a 10,000ft2 site in Knowsley Road. There have also been some tough times along the way, in particular with recessions in the early 1990s and late 2000s. However, our commitment to quality and service has never changed and we continue to thrive and offer a premium service to new and existing customers alike.

“A huge thank you has to be said to every member of staff – past and present – who have worked tirelessly each day in order to deliver the quality products and service that Qualplas has become renowned for. Also, a massive thank you to all of our customers over the past 30 years, a number of whom have been with us since day one!

“Last but certainly not least, everyone at Qualplas – from the board of Directors, the management team, and all employees – would like to say a massive thank you to The Veka UK Group. A large part of our success is down to the suppliers we choose. Qualplas’s long-standing relationship with The Veka UK Group has ensured only the best quality raw material to fabricate with plus additional support in terms of technical expertise. Qualplas’s partnership with the Network Veka brand has also enabled the company to be where it is today. Qualplas aims to work closely with both for many more years to come.”
