Swanning Off To Swansea

Hardware manufacturer VBH says more and more installers and fabricators are swanning down to its Swansea trade counter to pick up the odds and ends they need – or even placing large orders.

The counter is open during weekday working hours and offers a large selection of hardware from VBH’s own greenteQ brand, as well as from other provides such as Yale and AGB.

And customers don’t just include maintenance companies, installers and fabricators regularly call in to collect products including profile cylinders, patio door gear, resi-door and window hardware, vents and construction chemicals among other items.


 “Often, customers can’t wait for a delivery so prefer to call in and pick up what they need for the day. As well as the convenience of being local, we cater for orders of all sizes, with no minimum order value and no need to pre-order. Walk-ins are welcome.”

– Dave Prout, 

Operations Manager, VBH Swansea



The trade counter has proven so popular that it has been listed as a finalist in this year’s National Fenestration Awards in the Trade Counter of the Year category.

Prout adds: “We may not have the biggest or most plush counter but our wide stock range and friendly, experienced team make it an attractive option for local businesses. Being named as an NFA finalist is a massive pat on the back for our team.”
