New hardware supply agreement

Titon has established a framework agreement to supply its range of hardware to Leicestershire-based window and door fabricator, Coalville Glass and Glazing.

Throughout 2017, Coalville Glass and Glazing has begun using increased quantities of Titon’s ranges of window handles, restrictors, door handles, and 3-Star security door cylinders across its portfolio. Since incorporating the hardware into its product offering, reaction has been positive, with national housebuilders, trade and retail customers all praising the high quality of Coalville’s windows and doors, the company reported.

Andrew Whitehorn, company director of Coalville Glass and Glazing, said: “Titon manages to offer the right balance of quality and price points that this market dictates, so it was a logical step to purchase a wider range from their hardware offering, in turn reducing the number of suppliers we have to deal with. Not only are we delighted from a production perspective, we have also received excellent feedback from our customers about the hardware.”

Andrew continued: “The Titon range has recently been extended, with Part Q Building Regulations coming in to force and the PAS24 specification being required. By using Titon’s 3-Star door cylinder – as well as the Titon door handle – we can achieve the required standard easily.”

Coalville Glass and Glazing has been operating for 40 years, employing 75 employees in a 12,000m2 manufacturing facility, manufacturing Eurocell windows and doors, alongside aluminium products.

Tyson Anderson, Titon’s sales and marketing director, said: “This goes to prove that, as we’ve been highlighting recently, there’s much more to Titon than vents alone. In fact, with nearly 45 years’ manufacturing experience, we have plenty of knowledge covering all aspects of hardware design and supply.”
