Delivering product manufacture and supply with added value
Published 03 January 2019

The fact is that building products that are designed well are generally made well. They comply with regulations and perform well in situ.  Of course, there are exceptions to this, but on the whole its true. It's reason enough to choose a supplier who puts faith in their considerable experience in production and supply, but to select one who creates value by adding services to their products, may offer a better alternative, and requires a broader skills set for delivering both traditional and specialist products which are integrated with one or more service component. Often these are provided free of charge and are available on call to customers during stated working hours. Here are some examples provided by Clark-Drain:
