Kloeber position as one of the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of high performance timber, aluminium and composite glazing solutions, has seen it work with Marine Grade 316 stainless steel door and window hardware specialist blu™.
Kloeber is now working with blu to fit a growing range of the high quality stainless steel hardware onto its award winning contemporary FunkyFront timber and aluminium entrance doors.
According to Kloeber company buyer Chris Cook, the moment he was introduced to the new blu™ range earlier this year he was impressed.
“You could clearly see the attention to detail that had gone into the bluTM product range which was backed up by the styling and finish.
“We started off using the square mitre door handles and straight away they were getting a lot of attention from our customers which was also the case when we exhibited at Grand Designs and fitted the handles to the doors on our stand. People really liked the look and feel.
“We are very specific about who we work with – as a leading name in the market we are courted by the hardware industry almost continuously - but it was clear from speaking to the team at blu™ that they shared the same ethos as us which was vitally important” said Chris.
“Stainless steel has become incredibly popular and now features on about 90% of our products and it is vital that we work with a company that matches our high standards. People want the hardware to match the quality of the rest of the product because it is such an aesthetic aspect - it’s what the customer comes into contact with every time they open and close their windows and doors. We feel we have the best products and we want to finish them with the bluTM hardware and our customers have really responded positively to this,” Chris added.
Having developed such a positive relationship, Kloeber is now working with blu™ to design its own range of door hardware.
blu™ Director Loren Jenner is delighted that the quality and attention to detail that is at the heart of the blu™ has been recognised by Kloeber.
“From the moment we came up with the concept for bluTM it was all about quality. Giving our customers and in turn their customers the very best Marine Grade 316 stainless steel range that in every element – design, manufacturing, finish and performance was without question. We are absolutely delighted that Kloeber - a really renowned name in the UK door and window market have selected a range of our handles and hardware to feature on their award-winning products. The relationship is one that we are enjoying developing and we’re excited to be looking at creating some exclusive products for them,” said Loren.
