Following the recent announcement by hardware manufacturer Roto that their UK office was closing at the end of 2012, VBH (GB) has moved to assure customers that they need not fear any disruption to the supply chain.
VBH Managing Director Peter Rowlands states ‘UK window and door manufacturers using Roto shouldn’t panic as a result of the closure of Roto’s Rugby office. VBH has been the major supply partner for Roto in the UK for 30 years, and we continue to be so. With the modern road and rail links that we enjoy now, Roto’s Belgian logistics hub is actually closer to us than the UK office was and we have been supplied direct from there for some time now, with no detriment to our service.
‘Our regular Roto stock deliveries either come into our main warehouse in Kent for distribution to our other sites or, as is most often the case, are delivered direct to VBH East Kilbride, Birmingham or Swansea.
‘The existing Roto Technical Sales team is still in place, and these guys will continue to work closely with VBH to ensure our customers get excellent before and after-sales service.’
VBH (GB) stocks Roto TSL casement hardware, tilt & turn, door and patio systems and thresholds at its four sites across England, Scotland and Wales, whilst VBH Ireland continues to serve customers in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
