Anglo customer, Polyframe, wins prestigious award

UnknownAnglo European would like to congratulate Polyframe on their recent Excellence in Business Award, which was organised by The Yorkshire Post. Polyframe was the winner in the ‘Companies between £10m and £50m’ category, recognising its phenomenal growth over recent years. Iain Duncan Smith was the keynote speaker at the glittering awards evening held in Leeds.

Anglo European have been a long term supplier for Polyframe and have kept pace with their phenomenal growth over recent years, including the opening of five new trade counters in 2014. “The logistics of supplying such a large fabricator with cut to size steel reinforcement is a complex operation” Comments James Lister, operations director for Anglo. “With our recent investment both in plant, vehicles and staff, Anglo are extremely capable of meeting their requirements, which is why we are the first choice for reinforcement by Polyframe”.

Anglo is now rolling out 10 million metres of steel reinforcement per year, to supply the ever growing number of customers., which will include Polyframe’s fifth factory opening in the New Year. When put into perspective in terms of scale and distance, if you lay four years of reinforcement production end to end, they would circle the earth. “Working on these scales of production and lead times, we keep a very close eye on our warehousing and stock levels. We always ensures that we keep two steps ahead, therefore minimising any problems that may arise,” comments James.

Anglo European pride themselves on their customer service which is at the heart of the business and is one of the reasons they are now one of the leading suppliers of Steel reinforcement for the window and door market.

“We would also like to wish Polyframe the best of luck for the forthcoming G14 Awards on the 21st November, where they have been shortlisted for Fabricator of the Year”, comments James.
