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.”
Door-Stop can now offer customers the composite door and lock system, TS007 3*, accredited with a BSi Kitemark.
