Lister Trade Frames accesses new market with Door-Stop
Door-Stop Internationalcontact supplier
Single rebated composite door
Lister Trade Frames has teamed up with door supplier Door-Stop International to enhance its product range.
MD of Lister Trade Frames, Mark Warren wanted to add a single rebated composite door to the company’s Elitis range.
In order to do this successfully, he needed to find a supplier that shared Lister’s commitment to quality.
He said: “Our Elitis Brand isn’t just about the products we make. It also encompasses our customer care, marketing and service.
“We like to work with like-minded businesses, forward thinking and innovative. Door-Stop fits the description exactly. I’ve known Nick Dutton, MD of Door-Stop, for many years. Once he sets out to do something he does it well so I knew he would match our high standards.
“In our market,” continues Mark, “companies need to keep on adding new options and improvements, to stay ahead of customers’ needs. Offering the single rebated door has opened new markets for us, and new sales.
“Our customers already have access to our own Dual Rebated Gallery Doors Range but we wanted to complement it with a quality Single Rebated version. We’re pleased to have formed a close relationship with Doorstop and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
This year’s FIT Show saw composite door manufacturer, Door-Stop International, split its stand into two zones, with one half concentrating on the company’s new colour range and the other highlighting its new guarantee. The new colours introduced into Door-Stop International composite range include Chartwell Green, Cream and Grey. The company’s new approach to its FIT stand layout meant enquiries generated from the show doubled.
Door-Stop is offering its customers a new lock option – the Winkhaus AV2 Slam Lock – which engages at the point the door is closed.
As of the opening day of the FIT show (16-18 April 2013), Door-Stop will be guaranteeing free 3-day composite doorsets if they are not delivered on the promised day.
Door-Stop will be highlighting the benefits of its CE marked range of composite doors and unveiling a new offering at FIT 2013 in April.
Door-Stop’s standard composite door now comes with a ten year Secure Guarantee for doors purchased with the ERA Vectis lock.
