Smarts mark ten-year anniversary with Fenster Fabrications

Offering outstanding quality and dedicated customer service, over ten years Torquay-based Fenster Fabrications has grown to become one of the region’s leading suppliers of aluminium windows and doors. Now, the respected firm isn’t just celebrating ten years in business, but its ten-year anniversary with systems company Smart Architectural Aluminium.

It’s a milestone the two companies recently marked with a meeting at the Smart headquarters in Yatton, North Somerset, in which Fenster MD Tony Drake and Commercial Manager Nick Powder met with Smart Marketing Officer Dan Evans and Area Sales Manager Mark Carroll to reflect on the past decade, and make plans for the year ahead.

The two businesses have developed a close, understanding relationship over years of collaboration. Today, Fenster offers the full range of Smarts window and door products to trade and commercial projects across the South of England – and clearly has huge respect for the company’s commitment to quality and innovation.

“We’re fortunate enough to have a fantastic relationship with Smart,” Tony commented. “We share a lot of the same values – we’re both committed to quality products, outstanding design, and pushing the boundaries of architectural aluminium. The thing I personally appreciate about them most, though, is their responsiveness – they’re genuinely interested in what we think, and always take on board any ideas or feedback we have.”

“We’re already in talks to begin offering a number of fantastic new Smart products in the new year – and we’re hugely excited about what the next ten years of collaboration might bring.”

Founded in 2006, Fenster is one of the West Country’s leading aluminium suppliers. In addition to offering the full range of products from Smarts, the company also manufactures Üni_Slide, an ultra-slim aluminium sliding door, equally suited to commercial and residential applications.

Offering exceptional thermal efficiency, build quality, and desirable minimalist aesthetics, Üni_Slide can achieve frame sightlines as slim as 20mm, and a slim central interlock, while being able to support sliding panels of up to 3m high and 2.2m wide. The product can be assembled in a limitless run of units, with each panel capable of holding up to 320kg of glass.
