Hardware choice

When Stedek switched to the Aluplast system late last year, it turned to Window Ware for the full hardware support it needed for a seamless transition and uninterrupted production, even in the face of soaring demand and supply challenges caused by the pandemic, it said.

Today, the Midlands-based company not only sources all the hardware for its Aluplast products from Window Ware, but for its Residence Collection offering too.

“We’d been buying some products for our Residence Collection doors and windows from Window Ware since 2018 and we had always received exemplary service,” Andy Young, Stedek’s operations manager, said.

“Then in April this year, when The Residence Collection officially appointed Window Ware as its approved Regal Hardware distribution partner, that, coupled with our own positive experiences and their industry-wide reputation for reliability, sealed the deal for us. We decided it was the right time to streamline our supply chain and move all our hardware sourcing to Window Ware.”

Window Ware gave Stedek and other Residence Collection fabricators exclusive early access to the new Regal Hardware Mark II handle five months before its general launch to market in the autumn.
