June 2018 sees Blackburn based window and door fabricator and installer 1st Choice Frames Ltd celebrate their 10 year partnership with the award winning PVCu window and door profile systems house, Selecta Systems.
Andy Bingham, Owner / Director, of 1st Choice Frames has over 30 years of experience within the industry, originally starting out working for local window and door manufacturing companies, before deciding to use his experience and knowledge to his advantage. In May 2006, 1st Choice Frames was born with the focus of providing the local area with first class windows and doors, backed up by a friendly and quality service.
Andy comments, “Business started very well and progressed nicely. However, we soon realised that our window and door profile system and supplier didn’t fit in with our business model and required standard, so therefore looked at other system houses and profiles. We were impressed by Selecta and the fabricator and fitter friendliness of their Advance 70 System, as it ticked all the boxes.”
1st Choice Frames soon outgrew their premises and moved in to a unit double the size of their original factory in 2010, to cope with the business growth. Andy continues, “We needed to relocate as we had outgrown our original premises. Selecta assisted with the move, designing the shop floor layout, fitting airlines and configuration of our machinery. Their assistance was invaluable and working in partnership with Selecta has enabled 1st Choice Frames to grow year on year. With Selecta only being a phone call away they will often go above and beyond to assist with any requirements, ranging from marketing to one off colours, through to technical support and help with machinery breakdowns. Following the relocation, we also expanded”
1st Choice Frames have a team of fitters and vehicles, carrying out installations and deliveries to their surrounding area. Their showroom, has recently been kitted out with new Advance 70 windows, bi-folding doors and composite doors.
“We fabricate and install a comprehensive range of windows and doors, from standard casement to bay, bow and flush windows, whilst also offering composite doors, French doors, the new and innovative EASi-FOLD doors and patio doors. We also provide a range of readymade products to local tradesmen. Whether it be retail or trade based, our commitment to providing a quality product and service is and will always be our aim”, states Andy.
Over the last 10 years both 1st Choice Frames and Selecta Systems have evolved together and built up a relationship based on trust and understanding, which not only benefits both businesses, but also customers.
Andy Green, Sales Director of Selecta Systems, commented “We would like to thank 1st Choice Frames for their continued business and loyalty over the last 10 years. We are looking forward to supporting them with their future plans for continued growth, by supplying innovative and high quality products and a service and support package to match.”
With some exciting plans in the pipeline at 1st Choice Frames, which include the availability of two new quality products, Andy is looking forward to further success and a long and fruitful partnership with Selecta. Andy remarks, “Being with Selecta really is like being part of a family.”
