With distribution centres located in Peterborough and Cumbernauld, we operate on a national scale serving fabricators throughout the UK and Ireland, including the Scottish Highlands and Offshore Islands.

The company works in partnership with leading European hardware manufacturers to provide a broad range of locks, handles, hinges and associated furniture which customers can trust are tried, tested and proven.
Building Our Skills – Making Fenestration, Glass and Glazing a Career of Choice is committed to bridging the growing skills gap by working closely with employers and other organisations to attract new entrants to the industry, and by upskilling the existing workforce to inspire them to see the industry as a home for their long term career ambitions, and not just a job for now.
The organisation works with a large number of industry employers and individual employees to help promote its message that the industry is a home for everyone, whatever their skills and whatever their career ambitions.
Our aim is to inform, encourage, support and inspire.
