Leading window and door manufacturer Quickslide has made the decision to put the ethos of ‘home grown’ at the heart of a new investment this year, as they announce a new partnership with local blinds supplier Morley Glass. The move will be of major interest to customers, as the decreased distance and an enhanced product offering equals shorter lead times and an improved turnaround.

“Our new relationship with Morley Glass began back in December to ensure that we were ready to hit the ground running with orders in January” explained Managing Director Ben Weber. “When it comes to integral blinds, our customers are increasingly requesting wider variation in both colour and operating systems. We have taken on two of Morley’s core manual control products; the ‘C System’ which features a rotational cord and a cordless magnetic slider system, known as the ‘SV System’. Each of these are available in traditional, timeless colours including white, creams and greys, but for homeowners wanting to make more of a statement through their windows, the choice of bright primary colours provide a great alternative.”

The slim control style of the Morley Glass devices makes them ideal for integrating blinds into any product across the comprehensive Quickslide range; a benefit Ben expects to attract new business over the coming months.

Additionally, with less than ten miles between the two factory sites the move guarantees Quickslide a reduction in their carbon footprint – an aim which Ben intends to fulfil across the company’s entire supply chain:

“Climate activism is so very poignant right now, and it is absolutely everyone’s responsibility to confront environmentally threatening issues. The proximity of Morley’s premises to us means that we can support the wider cause to be eco-friendly by having vehicles on the road for less time, and making more efficient journeys.”
