SupaLite, the manufacturers behind the highly-acclaimed SupaLite tiled roof system has welcomed customers from across the country to Preston for their annual fabricator conference.
Hosted by SupaLite’s new MD, Steve Hacking, the conference recapped on what has been a highly-successful year for both the business and its trade partner network. The event also saw a number of exciting, new developments unveiled as SupaLite prepares for another big year in 2019.
Firstly, SupaLite launched their new-look ‘Registered Fabricator Scheme’, now endorsed and fully-supported by CORGI Fenestration. The new and improved scheme not only ensures all fabricators are working to the same high standards but delivers a competitive edge for customers, with the full backing of CORGI Fenestration – one of the industry’s most recognisable names. At just £200 per year, it’s a fantastic opportunity for fabricators to stand-out from their competition with the backing of a highly-respected quality accreditation.
Secondly, SupaLite also launched their new ‘Registered Installer Scheme’ – which also operates in conjunction with CORGI Fenestration. Offering the same benefits of CORGI Fenestration registration, the installer scheme aims to promote the best SupaLite installers across the country and provides a full range of support from free sales leads to the option of SupaLite micro websites. Installers will be able to notify their work to CORGI Fenestration via Supalite’s online portal saving the need for any double entry.
Along with providing full registration with CORGI Fenestration, the SupaLite scheme is unique in also providing building regulations approval.
Customers will now be able to submit applications, supporting documents and photography via SupaLite’s online portal - a process designed to help customers save both time and money.
Steve Hacking comments: “The last 12 months have been massive for SupaLite and with the plans we have in place, it looks like 2019 will be much of the same. This is our third fabricator conference and it’s been fantastic to share all our important news and celebrate the successes of our valued trade partners.
“It’s great to finally break cover with our new Registered Fabricator and Installer Schemes which is already generating a fantastic response. This is the result of months of hard work between SupaLite and CORGI Fenestration to deliver two schemes which really adds value to our customers and their businesses.
The streamlining of Building Regs approval with our online portal just makes it an absolute no-brainer to fabricate and install SupaLite tiled roof systems. A big thank you to all our fabrication partners for taking time out to travel up and join us in Preston.”
In addition to a marketing masterclass from SupaLite’s marketing partners Purplex, the event also introduced a number of new products including the official launch of the Flat Roof Orangery and the brand-new Sky Vista roof. Sky Vista is SupaLite’s new, highly-requested hybrid roof system combining both solid and glazed elements.
To finish off the event, SupaLite crowned their Fabricator of the Year for 2018. After a year of impressive growth which saw SupaLite sales increase by 100%, the winner was revealed as Stafford uPVC Windows.
