A NEW supplier to the trades in the Bury area has pledged to create 10 new openings over the course of the next few months.

Bosses at Supply 2 Trade, which specialises in doors, windows and conservatories, started out in the Potteries, before venturing into Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

But now the outfit, which was only founded in 2018. has grown to six depots and has opened a new site at the King's Church complex on Bury and Bolton Road.

An initial three people are being taken on, the firm has outlined, to staff their trades counter.

But there are plans for another 7,000 square foot unit, which will swell their ranks by another seven in the near future.

Matt Janicki, the company's national sales manager, told the Bury Times: "We provide REHAU windows and doors,fascias, trims, rubber roofs directly to the trade.

"By utilising our company's buying power, for over 1000 windows and doors a week, we are able to pass the savings onto the local businesses, who can benefit from this approach."

For Mr Janicki, who is originally from the Bury area, the new development is a bonus as the supplier expands.

He added: "I joined the company in early 2020 as national sales manager, when myself and the directors identified Bury and Bolton as somewhere we should focus for our next expansion.

"Securing a site on Bury New Road in July, made this a dream a reality.

"As a local lad I’ve always wanted to have a company of my own to really help the high number of traders in Bury and Bolton."

Turnover in the early going has already reached £100,000 for the fledgling operation, according to the company.

And with an official launch slated for this week, when they say their shelves will be fully stocked, the firm is looking to hit the ground running, despite current tough trading conditions

Mr Janicki said: "What we feel makes us different to most other companies, is our business philosophy of keeping margins low, but sales volume high.

"We feel that by offering the highest possible quality of product, at very keen prices, this hopefully helps our local traders secure more work, especially is this very competitive market."

The company has a building plastics centre in Burslem and frames and fascia outlets in Grantham, Long Eaton, Newark, Lichfield and Sleaford. Further offerings have been drawn up for leading industry names such as Veka, Yale, EuroCell, Supalite and Virtuso Doors.
