“Secured by Design remains the most recognised indicator of security performance in the UK"

Leading distributor of fenestration hardware Mila has renewed its membership with the official police security initiative Secured by Design.

Mila has been at the heart of the UK hardware industry since 1980, supplying the trade, merchant and retail sectors with a wide range of third party window and door hardware from market-leading brands such as Yale, Siegenia and AXOR. More than half of Mila’s sales though are own brand products, designed and developed in house with an emphasis on quality, innovation and value.

Mila supplied products are used across the PVCu, aluminium and timber markets and the company’s aim is always to set the benchmark in the industry for service, delivery and overall customer experience.

Mila has over 8000 SKUs in stock at its purpose built 600m² Northamptonshire warehouse, and reports weekly OTIF figures which are typically in excess of 95%.

Mila supplies hardware to 6 of the largest PVCu fabricators in the UK and has been the main hardware supplier to the largest PVCu retail fabricator in the UK for over 25 years.

They have an extensive range of products which have achieved Police Preferred Specification, recently adding the new Mila letterplate, which has been developed in response to direct feedback from fabricators, to their range of products. I am looking forward to our continued working relationship over the coming years”.

Richard Gyde, Managing Director of Mila, commented: “Secured by Design remains the most recognised indicator of security performance in the UK. Having SBD accreditation on our products helps us to win business but, more importantly, it helps our customers selling in the trade and retail markets to win business too.”
