After the successful launch of their Approved Commercial Installer Network (ACIN), trade fabricator Astraseal has seen an abundance of would-be members looking to join the initiative. Prominent, Sussex-based commercial glazing installer Newview has become the first to join ACIN.
Newview, which operates in the South-East and also serves Heathrow and West London, has begun receiving leads from Astraseal for commercial projects in their area. Quite uniquely, Astraseal completes all the preparation work beforehand, contacting developers to work out the specifications and drawing up the quote. They then provide Newview with the supply element, who only have to add their own costs and then submit the completed tender package to the client.
“We are so pleased to welcome Newview to the ACIN and we look forward to building a partnership where they can help us meet the demand for our commercial services, and we can help them develop new commercial relationships,” comments Astraseal Sales and Marketing Manager, Zac Nedimovic.
“The ACIN is a win, win situation. Astraseal is in the unique position as a supplier as we receive daily tenders where our services and products have been specified, our approved installers like Newview receive leads worth between £50k-£500k in their area.”
Newview Director, Michele Wietscher comments: “We are delighted to be the first installer to join the ACIN. Although we were initially sceptical, we have already started receiving a number of leads including a project worth half-a-million pounds. To receive quality leads in our catchment area where the preparation work has already been completed and the client vetted, gives us added peace of mind that our whole supply chain is protected and working cohesively.”
Approved installers also gain access to key benefits as part of the initiative including commercial discount rates on all products supplied through the network and purchased through Eurocell branches nationwide. They will also get paid for skip facilities for each project and access to Astraseal’s industry-renowned knowledge and technical expertise, including CAD drawings, performance calculations and surveyors to name a few.
“It’s really simple to register for the ACIN,” adds Zac. “Installers can register their details using the online form on www.astraseal.co.uk, or they can speak to our commercial BDM team by calling 01933 227233 and answering a couple of questions. Once that’s sorted installers are vetted for compliance and will start to receive leads in their area.”
“We have built a very strong reputation in the commercial sector for quality products and service, with our meticulous approach to completing even the most complex of projects. Because of this, when it comes to commercial projects, more and more developers and specifiers are choosing Astraseal. With ACIN, not only can we now complete the torrent of commercial tenders we receive whilst maintaining our high standards, we can offer a more competitive tender with the geographic reach of our installer partners.”
