Quickslide signs new 5-year supply agreement with Epwin Window Systems

Quickslide, a leading manufacturer and supplier of PVC-U sash windows, has signed a five-year contract with Epwin Window Systems to continue manufacturing its market-leading Vertical Sliding Sash Window. The agreement further extends the relationship between the two businesses, which started in 2019.

Ben Weber, Managing Director of Quickslide, commented: “We are very selective about our choice of supply partner because we know we can only be as good as the suppliers we work with. Our relationship with Epwin Window Systems has gone from strength to strength since 2019, and we look forward to deepening our ties even further.” 

Katrina Earl, Sales Director at Epwin Window Systems, said: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with Quickslide for a further five years. The company is a great example of how a fabricator can leverage maximum benefit from a partnership with us and make full use of the resources and personnel we have available within our business.”

Ben notes that the credentials of the Epwin Window Systems Vertical Sliding Sash Window were key to choosing the systems company as its supply partner. However, he says the true value lies in the strength of the relationship, which has significantly benefited Quickslide’s business.

He said: “We’ve seen great value from the closeness of our relationship with Epwin Window Systems. Everyone is very personable, open to market discussions and proactive – we’ve been impressed by the emphasis they place on listening to customers and working with them for mutual benefit.”

He continued: “We’ve been involved in numerous forums and had open dialogues with the senior management team to discuss continuous product developments and building regulation changes, which have helped us remain ahead of the curve for our customers. For example, the new slimline meeting rail was developed as a direct result of customer feedback.”

He concluded: “A close-knit relationship and mutual respect is in everyone’s best interests in a supplier-customer partnership. With Epwin Window Systems, we have these benefits in abundance.”

Quickslide is based in Brighouse, West Yorkshire and prides itself on the product quality it offers. It has been recognised for its excellence and has won many regional and national awards including Fabricator of the Year, Business of the Year and Training Initiative of the year at the prestigious G Awards.

Epwin Window Systems is one of the UK’s largest and most proactive systems houses. As Ben’s comments make clear, one of the reasons for its status is its understanding of its customers and its consistent ability to help them stay one step ahead.
