New-build customers valued

Freefoam’s support to the UK market has been ‘invaluable’, according to General Building Plastics (GBP).

Rugeley-based GBP is an independent supplier of PVC building products to the building and home improvement trade, with six other trade counters throughout the Midlands, Shropshire and Oxfordshire.

The company also supplies local and national housebuilders.

Working with Freefoam as sole supplier of PVC fascia, soffit and gutter since 1994, the relationship has grown and developed to the mutual benefit of both companies.

Courtney Robertson, area sales manager, said: “It would be easy to say we chose Freefoam as a supplier because of the quality of their products and the consistency of supply, and that’s why we continue to buy from Freefoam, but the reason why we started the relationship in the first place, and the reason why the relationship continues today, is the way they value our customers as much as we do.”

Freefoam’s wide range of styles, sizes and colours of fascia and soffit are particularly suitable for the new build market, GBP said. The variety enables housebuilders to source high quality, long lasting, low maintenance materials suitable for any style of home, but still allows them to remain competitive in the market place.

Freefoam is also committed to supporting customers throughout the supply process from providing tender documents, back office support and onsite help and back up where needed.

“We find Freefoam’s support invaluable,” Courtney said. “They also help us build new business by recommending us as new-build partners and providing me with sales leads that often lead to quality business. Freefoam work with us as a business, and want us to grow, and we couldn’t have done it without them.”
