Leading delivery specialists Panther Warehousing has further extended its unique offering after sealing a new contract with a leading UK window and door manufacturer Euramax Solutions Ltd.
The Northampton-based logistics provider now delivers a range of uPVC products on behalf of leading DIY retailers – including Wickes and Screwfix – which are all made at Euramax’s new world class operations centre in Barnsley.
The dedicated white-glove two-man delivery specialist was awarded the contract in a bid to reduce Euramax’s carbon footprint, improve the supply chain and reduce outlay.
The management team at the window and door manufacturer say they are already reaping the rewards of the new partnership – branding Panther’s service as ‘second to none’.
Nick Burton, Purchasing Manager of Euramax Solutions Ltd said: “We operate in a similar ethos to Panther – we are very much focused on the public’s perception of our products and services offered. So as a leading UK uPVC window and door manufacturer, maintaining the highest standard of service in everything we do is critical.
“We set ourselves very ambitious targets of delivering on time, in full with zero defects and Panther’s service and the way they control the materials is unparalleled. It really is proving to be a perfect partnership for both businesses.”
Euramax – which has 65 years of manufacturing excellence – offers a comprehensive range of durable, high quality and energy efficient windows, doors and conservatories in a wide array of different designs and colours – as well as a nationwide network of installers and support engineers.
The business previously employed a delivery specialist to warehouse and move bulk freight, this produced a huge carbon footprint travelling back and forth from each base – sometimes four or five times per week. However, Panther has been able to operate from within the new Euramax factory, which is not only helping the environment but also creating generous benefits for the company and its customers.
Panther, which delivers around 280 consignments for Euramax each week, is able to offer an unrivalled delivery service – the company’s flexible offering also providing Euramax with the option of a new express 2-man white glove delivery service.
Nick added: “Since joining forces with Panther, we have seen many improvements to the business, including full visibility of what’s being delivered to the customer’s door – which previously Euramax didn’t have.
“As a business we now also have that visibility on any returned items, Panther has helped with managing this process, which has proved to be very effective. I see that the synergies between the two companies are right, creating a fantastic partnership which I hope will continue for years to come.”
Colin McCarthy, Panther Warehousing’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Euramax – which is a leading UK manufacturer of uPVC windows and doors.
“As a business we are always looking at ways to enhance our offering to stay ahead of the game and this contract with Euramax once again ensures that we are able to meet the growing needs of consumers so that demand for our specialist service continues to grow.”
