Cherry is being replaced by Golden Oak

Cherrywood foil is being replaced with Golden Oak.  Cherrywood and Golden Oak foils are very similar and difficult to tell apart. For example you have all been using Golden Oak Panels and trims for years because none of the ancillary suppliers stock Cherrywood.

The Veka ‘Variations’ foil range is now huge and difficult for them to manage, but manage it they must and in order to remain on trend whilst maintaining an efficient service something must give. There has been a large decline over the last 5 years in both Cherrywood and Golden Oak sales which has led to the decision to bring the Halo product in line with Veka extrusions that have always used Golden Oak.

RATIONALISATION: Please note that this forms part of a Veka rationalisation programme taking place throughout this year and there are more changes to be announced by them as they are introduced.

When a product is changed by the supply chain, we need to trust they have fully assessed their position commercially from an extrusion, production & customer demand point of view.  When something is removed from the range, more usually we are all up in arms, but more positively, in this instance we are not losing the option, we are only embracing a small change.

Covid-19 Update (Returning to work with limited capacity)

Dear Customer,

As we all eagerly await the Government’s forthcoming announcement, we have safely introduced a phased returned to work, albeit with a very limited workforce. There is no doubt that these are extremely challenging times for us all, and we must endeavour to provide regular and concise communication(s) which are vital to maintaining an efficient and gradual return to work. This is not business as usual and it will take the next few days to find our feet regarding capacity & lead-time.

We are now in at work accepting orders and quotes – please note we are not answering the phones until our official re-opening on Monday 11th May (still with very limited capacity)

Please take good care of yourself and all those around you
Warm regards

Mark Catchpole
Sales Director
SWC Trade Frames Limited
