Sliders UK partners with Kolorseal
Aluminium and composite door manufacturer, Sliders UK, has partnered with colour coating specialist, Kolorseal.
The manufacturer is said to have considered in-house spraying at the company’s Preston based facility, but decided against it due to the increase in stock holding that would have been required and the significant capital outlay.
Sliders UK’s product portfolio includes the Ultimate Door Collection which boasts over 2,500 colours with matching colour frames.
Alex Murphy, managing director at Sliders-UK, said: “From quote to order to delivery, the colour coating team at Kolorseal has the expertise and market understanding to provide quality products that can effectively support Sliders UK.
“Colour choice is virtually limitless, which helps to keep our business ahead of the competition and has allowed us to expand the company’s range. In place of the spraying and drying rooms we have now allocated the space to manufacturing new products including PVC-U patio doors.”
Deborah Hendry, managing director at Kolorseal, commented: “Instead of just standard reds, blues, greens, blacks or whites, homeowners have far more choice and they know it. Where Kolorseal excels is colour matching and we believe that detail counts.
“Recently, many companies have been evaluating their supply chains. Regarding colour coating however, the need for higher overall stock levels, more storage space and greater staffing requirements, creates a high level of investment that is not always attractive to fabricators as it does not generate a fast ROI.”
Alex continued: “Once the decision was made to outsource all our spray work to Kolorseal, we’ve never looked back. High quality products, delivered on time, every time, backed up by the Kolorseal guarantee, has certainly saved us money. Also, Deborah and her team have improved the flexibility of our delivery planning and its implementation. We wouldn’t go anywhere else!”
Deborah concluded: “Kolorseal provides customers in the sector with smarter ways to keep inventory, staffing and equipment maintenance costs under control.”
