PVC-U sash window manufacturer, Quickslide, has signed a five-year contract with Epwin Window Systems to continue manufacturing its vertical sliding sash window. The agreement further extends the relationship between the two businesses, which started in 2019.

Ben Weber, managing director of Quickslide, commented: “We are very selective about our choice of supply partner because we know we can only be as good as the suppliers we work with. Our relationship with Epwin has gone from strength to strength since 2019, and we look forward to deepening our ties even further.”

Katrina Earl, sales director at Epwin, said: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with Quickslide for a further five years. The company is a great example of how a fabricator can leverage maximum benefit from a partnership with us and make full use of the resources and personnel we have available within our business.”

Ben notes that the credentials of Epwin’s vertical sliding sash window were key to choosing the systems company as its supply partner. However, he says the true value lies in the strength of the relationship, which has significantly benefited Quickslide’s business.

He said: “We’ve seen great value from the closeness of our relationship with Epwin. Everyone is very personable, open to market discussions and proactive – we’ve been impressed by the emphasis they place on listening to customers and working with them for mutual benefit.”

He continued: “We’ve been involved in numerous forums and had open dialogues with the senior management team to discuss continuous product developments and building regulation changes, which have helped us remain ahead of the curve for our customers. For example, the new slimline meeting rail was developed as a direct result of customer feedback.”

He concluded: “A close-knit relationship and mutual respect is in everyone’s best interests in a supplier-customer partnership. With Epwin Window Systems, we have these benefits in abundance.”
