Window Ware, the award-winning hardware distributors are celebrating with longstanding customer Express Trade Frames, as their successful supply partnership reaches an incredible 21 years.

The Bedfordshire hardware specialists have not only been working with the team at Express Trade Frames since doors opened in 1999, but they hold the distinction of being the payee of their first business cheque.

Since then, Window Ware has supplied the Yale-approved fabricator with a full range of high-security Yale and Trojan hardware which has ultimately helped to ensure that their extensive array of uPVC glazing products pass the latest PAS 24 testing.

Although Fleetwood-based Express was formed in 1999, Managing Director, Scott Law explains that’s not when the relationship with Window Ware began:

“Before setting up Express Trade Frames, I had worked for other companies that relied on Window Ware for all their hardware needs. It made sense to stick with a trusted supplier when I decided to go it alone. To this day, we can still count on Window Ware to deliver cracking service, competitive prices, and have the leading brands we like in stock and ready for shipping without fail.

“We are delighted to be celebrating this fantastic milestone with the great team at Window Ware and we very much look forward to further success over the next 21 years!”

Sam Nuckey, Managing Director of Window Ware adds: “As we enter our 22nd  year in partnership with Yale, we are incredibly proud to be celebrating with one of their approved fabricators and one of our longest-standing customers, Express Trade Frames.

“It’s a real testament to the fantastic relationship that has developed over the past two decades with Scott and the team. Our commitment has always been to deliver a seamless supply to our fabrication customers, combining industry-leading brands with our renowned service. We are delighted that Express recognise that commitment and we wish them every success as we continue in our partnership together.

With over 6,500 unique products from leading brands including Yale, Maco and Trojan, Window Ware is one of the UK’s largest suppliers of window and door hardware, factory tools, fixings and consumables.
