What’s your opinion of patio doors, bi-fold doors and vertical sliders? Value-added products that give your portfolio the wow factor and increase your customer appeal? Or complex, time-consuming products that need to be manufactured by skilled operatives in larger quantities to make them financially viable?
Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s Managing Director, says both are right. “Products like these are really appealing to consumers, but they also require skill and investment to manufacture well. Buying in these products from a trusted partner gives you all the benefits of having the products in your portfolio with none of the negatives.”
Heidi is convinced this is why sales of their specialist products such as patio doors, bifold doors and vertical sliders have increased in recent months. “The housing slump means more and more homeowners are looking to improve their properties rather than move on. Lifestyle products like these are obvious areas to invest, and more and more fabricators and installers are turning to us to meet their customers’ requirements.”
Talking to Heidi it’s clear why fabricators and installers choose Modplan as their fabrication partner over their competitors. “We strive to offer a quality product and a quality service,” says Heidi. “We want our customers to know they can rely on us completely and feel that we are part of their team.”
Modplan has a standard order turnaround time of seven to ten days and a fast track service if that’s required. Bespoke sales and marketing support helps customers promote their portfolio while regular contact from an account manager helps ensure standards are being maintained. Other little touches that make the Modplan difference include an entire factory dedicated to bi-fold and patio door production for maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness, daily production meetings to ensure orders stay on track and unmarked delivery vans so deliveries can be discreet.
Specialist products such as patio doors, bi-fold doors and vertical sliders are valuable products in any portfolio. If you want to offer them but don’t want to manufacture them, Modplan offers the perfect solution – something that more and more companies are finding out.
