Edging Supplies was formed in July 2018 by Kal Sandhu and Derrick Gray. Based in Malvern, Worcestershire, the company was set up to supply the furniture manufacturing industry with edgebanding and ancillary products. With over 25 years’ involvement in this market, and a good customer base built up over many years, Kal and Derrick were well placed to set themselves up – so long as they had a good supplier base behind them ...
Edging Supplies’ chief supply partner is TECE, based in Turkey. TECE was established in 1987 and is now a major producer and supplier of edgebanding worldwide, and has supported the company since its conception. It is suppliers like TECE and many more that allow Edging Supplies to provide service and support to its customer base. “Our ethos of quality, service and reliability is closely aligned with our suppliers in this ever-demanding world,” says Kal.
“Edging Supplies has a comprehensive range of edgebandings and ancillary products which we stock at our warehouse in Malvern. There are over 400 product lines, comprising two million+ metres of edgebanding, all available on a next-day delivery.”
“The pallet carrier and parcel carrier the company uses delivers the service our customers need to keep their production running smoothly – this in turn gives the end-customer the product they want in the timeframe agreed.”
Customer orders can be taken by phone, email, WhatsApp messaging, and via the website as an enquiry. If received prior to the carrier collection times, the orders will be dispatched on a next-day service. Deliveries can be arranged on a timed delivery or the standard next-day service.
For special colours, Edging Supplies can match from a extensive selection held in the office, or arrange a colour match directly from TECE. This can be done within two weeks, with production and delivery being about four weeks from order. Edging Supplies holds a range of products, from ABS, PVC, melamine and veneer edgebandings, to ancillary products such as self-adhesive cover caps, repair waxes, edgebander adhesives and panel cleaners.
“We are committed to working closely with our customers, so as to customise their individual needs regarding the range of products and sizes,” says Derrick, “and specific stockholding to ensure reliable continuity of supply – even as customer usage fluctuates due to seasonal variations or trend changes in the market in general. It is our belief that our business must be proactive to meet both the customers’ needs, and what is happening in the market as a whole – staying one step ahead is crucial to the future of the business.
“Moving forward, we have plans to expand our warehousing capacity on our existing site in line with our projected growth over the next three years,” concludes Kal, “and this will help us to increase both our stock range and quantities held in Malvern for express availability to our customers.”
