November 2013: The two companies have a long standing relationship that spans the 40 years of Cordek’s existence and this new contract reflects the good will between them.
Signed on 11 November 2013, the deal confirms that Jablite will be the sole supplier of the expanded polystyrene mouldings that are the key component of Cordek’s new Cellcore HX product range.
Cellcore HX is an innovative product designed – after an extensive research and development programme – to alleviate the effects of ground heave on foundations.
“Cellcore HX is a key product in our business and we expect to see substantial growth in sales over the next five year period, which will be good for both our businesses,” says Alastair Seaton, Technical Director at Cordek.
“This sole supplier commitment demonstrates the trust and confidence we have in the Jablite team to deliver a quality product on time.”
Jablite Managing Director, Richard Lee, explains the importance of the deal to Jablite, “Our business has undergone a period of intense change during the past five years, this formal arrangement with Cordek is a sign that our strategic plans are working.
“We have made a substantial investment of around £600,000 in new machinery to service this Cordek agreement. As well as developing innovative products, we want to form strong partnerships with our key customers and to offer them exceptional service standards.
“The match between Cordek and Jablite works well because we have similar aspirations and expectations for our businesses. By working closely together we can achieve these; whilst continuing to raise our game and bring innovations and improvements into the marketplace.”
“We are very pleased to have a strong partnership with an organisation like Jablite” concludes Alastair.
