Mila and Safestyle UK have renewed their long-standing supply agreement for a further two years.
Mila’s managing director, Richard Gyde and Safestyle’s operations director, Mark Scaife, signed a deal recently, which will extend the partnership between the two businesses to more than two decades.
Richard Gyde said:
“We have a really strong relationship with Safestyle, which is one of the UK’s largest retail fabricators producing more than 6,000 items per week, but we are never complacent about our position. We work just as hard as we did 20 years ago to win and retain their business, and the process of renewing the contract gets more rigorous every time.
“Understandably, Safestyle is an incredibly demanding customer, but we relish the challenges they set us to go on delivering incremental improvements at every stage of our supply contract.
“We already achieve On Time In Full performance figures for Safestyle in excess of 99% but as we move forward with the new agreement, we have undertaken to deliver even more new service initiatives which will enable us to reach even higher peaks in supply chain performance.”
Mila remains Safestyle UK’s preferred hardware supplier and continues to provide the ‘vast majority’ of the fabricator’s hardware requirements. This includes ProSecure handles and suited ProStyle letterboxes for Safestyle’s doors and ProLinea espag and TBT handles for its windows. Mila also supplies a range of third party products, which Safestyle reportedly chooses to buy from Mila ‘because of the guarantees it offers on delivery and availability’.
As part of the new supply agreement, Safestyle will have a 12 month exclusivity in the retail market on one of Mila’s key 2015 product launches. Further details will be announced when the product becomes available in late spring.
