New Canadian distribution deal

Regalead has signed an exclusive sales and distribution deal with Door Com Products, a Canadian supplier of components for the door manufacturing industry.

Regalead opened its own distribution facility in Woodbridge, Ontario, in September 2017 and has reported significant growth in the Canadian market since launch.

It will continue to operate its own warehousing facility. The new agreement with Door Com will help the business to grow and provide improved service levels to existing and new customers going forward, the company said.

The two companies have been working together for two years, with Door Com operating as a traditional distributor for many of the Rega Lead products. Ricardo Figueiredo, RegaLead’s sales manager in Canada, has moved over to Door Com Products and he will continue to promote RegaLead’s range of glass and coating products to fibreglass and steel door manufacturers across Canada.

Door Com will also offer the new Inox stainless steel frame system and associated glass designs as a pre-glazed option for prepared door slabs.

Guy Hubble, joint manging director of Regalead, said: “Exciting times are ahead. We are really pleased to continue to offer the Rega Lead range to customers in Canada through the distribution deal. There’s an appetite for more European design, which sets Rega Lead’s products apart from competitors. The combination of Door Com’s market access and distribution along with Rega Lead’s product range and marketing support, offers the opportunity for significant growth for both businesses.”
