Xpert surpasses 10 year milestone
Xpert, the specialist tool arm of hardware distributor Window Ware is celebrating 10 years of successfully helping tradespeople work faster, smarter and safer.
Launched in 2010, Xpert was the brainchild of a group of likeminded, professional fitters, frustrated by the lack of specialist tools and equipment for the fenestration industry. Using their wealth of experience, the group banded together to design and build a bespoke range of tools and essentials.
The result was a range that finally gave tradespeople tried-and-tested tools that were truly fit for purpose. Whether it’s the moon knife, uPVC saw or gasket shears, fitters no longer needed to make do with general purpose tools – a development which made Xpert an instant hit with the trade.
Xpert’s success brought the brand to the attention of Window Ware, the award-winning hardware supplier, who in 2016 added the range into their product portfolio. Since then, Xpert has expanded beyond air tools and hand tools to include machinery spares, materials and accessories. The aim is to help fabricators minimise unnecessary downtime whilst continuing to help installers deliver the best quality in less time.
“It’s incredible to see Xpert grow from an idea among friends to this trailblazing tool brand, trusted by fabricators, installers and over 300 stockists nationwide,” comments Karl Williamson, Business Development Manager at Window Ware. “This milestone is only possible through maintaining our original ethos of offering tradespeople a proven range of products which makes their job easier and safer.
“The support of Window Ware has helped extend that commitment, adding relevant products which benefit both the fitter and the fabricator, and supporting the range with unrivalled technical support and service excellence. I’m proud of the role I played in developing Xpert and I’m delighted to still be championing the brand 10-years later as part of the Window Ware family.”
Sam Nuckey, Managing Director of Window Ware adds: “We are absolutely delighted to be celebrating Xpert’s 10th anniversary. When the opportunity arose to bring Xpert under the Window Ware umbrella, it was really a no-brainer. From day one, Xpert has answered a clear gap in the market with quality tools, equipment and consumables.
“It’s brought a whole new range of products to our offering, meaning customers can get everything from specialist tools to Teflon to machine spares and cleaners from the same place as their window and door hardware. Best of all, they can take advantage of our next-day delivery service and broad technical knowledge in the process.”
