In a follow up from last week’s news surrounding the discontinuation of Duraflex, DGB has seen the following communication:

UK Windows and Doors Group (UKWDG) and VEKA plc are pleased to announce the expansion of their already successful partnership. Lancashire-based VEKA plc, which already supplies UKWDG with the exclusive Evolution profile, will supply all of UKWDG’s profile requirements from September this year.

The two companies have been working together for the last 11 years and the relationship between them has gone from strength to strength. Matthew Scoffield, CEO of UKWDG said, “The advanced product technology, professionalism, quality, service and strong operational support that we see from VEKA led to them being the clear choice for us when looking for a profile supplier for the long term. They have already proven to be a stable, efficient and trustworthy supplier to our business and produce high-quality products that are designed to last.”

VEKA is a family-owned business and has been leading the global development of PVCu systems for over 50 years. Commenting on the new agreement, Neil Evans, Managing Director of VEKA plc said, “It’s been great to work alongside UKWDG, owners of Evolution. We are extremely pleased to be expanding our partnership and it gives us a huge sense of pride that VEKA will be UKWDG’s supplier for the future.” Neil continued, “Signing this long-term supply agreement demonstrates immense trust in us and we will continue to repay that trust by delivering an excellent product backed by steadfast support. I expect that this relationship will flourish for many years to come”.

VEKA has worked hard to earn a clearly recognised differentiation in service delivery and due to significant investment in their mixing plant and extrusion facilities, has the capacity to integrate this new business alongside their already well-established customer base, whilst guaranteeing the highest possible level of service and World Class delivery performance (OTIF). They hold an unrivalled range and volume of stock ensuring that they consistently deliver on their day 1 for day 3 promise, with robust production planning techniques in place to support this, combined with a workforce committed to delivering for customers.
