System switch

Hull-based fabricator Vulcan Windows has switched its system supplier to Eurocell.

Operations director Paul Walker said: “We were impressed with the product range offered by Eurocell, particularly the Modus system. We are rapidly expanding our new build and commercial divisions, and Modus supports this development due to the variety of foils and colours, coupled with the flush sash system.”

“These choices are of immense importance to our many domestic customers too, as they demand style alongside cutting edge performance in security and thermal efficiency.

“Eurocell has the systems, the back-up and the service that we felt were lacking in our existing supplier, especially in the new build and commercial sectors, where Eurocell has teams actively seeking developments in on behalf of fabricators.”

He added that these are areas that other competing profile suppliers were not as strong on and that Eurocell shared the same perception: that there was a lot of work in both these sectors and that Eurocell had geared itself up to help its fabricators win that work.

“We found that some housebuilders only specify Eurocell so there was a lot of work we couldn’t price for yet,” Paul said. “Since we signed up with them, we’ve been invited to look at jobs we wouldn’t have had a look in before.”

Vulcan Windows employs 80 staff, and fabricates 500-600 frames per week at its factory in Clough Road.

“This is exactly the sort of fabricator we need to partner with to drive the growth we believe is possible in the UK market,” said Jason Bird, Eurocell’s national business development manager. “The management is ambitious and not only sees the same opportunities as we do but can also deliver the premium quality we require to meet the requirements of blue-chip clients.”

Switching to Eurocell profiles is straightforward, with each new fabricator being assigned its own field-based technical support engineer who can deliver everything required from initial set-up advice on production efficiency through to trouble-shooting issues.
