VITA is celebrating its first anniversary as an exclusive UK Schüring distributor.
Precision engineered door and window hardware supplier, Schüring, has reportedly enjoyed global success over the last 55 years and thanks to the exclusive distributor arrangement with VITA, this success is said to have been replicated in the UK during the first year of the partnership.
Stewart Lamb, managing director of VITA Hardware, commented:
“We’re celebrating the first anniversary of VITA’s exclusive UK rights to the distribution of the Schüring range of German hardware and are delighted with the brand penetration into the UK PVC-U fabricator market so far. With a comprehensive range of UK focused products, the current offering includes premium door hinges, locks and accessories and specialist hardware for tilt and turn, side hung and sliding windows. The Schüring multipoint lock has been particularly well received thanks to its premium security features.
“Schüring’s five decades have been underpinned by innovation and a drive for new product development in the PVC-U door and window industry, a commitment that’s illustrated by an impressive 450 patents. As far back as 1979, the company developed the first dedicated PVC door hinge and in 1980, introduced one of the first multipoint locks for PVC residential doors. Over three decades later, as more and more new and often unproven hardware entrants flood into the UK market, a heritage that customers can trust is vital.
“With more than three decades of global experience in hardware design and manufacture – including in the UK for 15 years – we never forget that VITA’s own roots lie in the door and window handle market. This legacy dovetails perfectly with Schüring’s innovation, durability and ethos of in-house development, manufacture and distribution. 2015 will see us continue to focus on this alliance as we further develop and grow the UK market for both brands.”
