MILA Congratulates TRADESMITH on 25 Years

News | Customers

Mila is leading the congratulations for Sussex based PVC-U trade fabricator Tradesmith as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Tradesmith has been buying a large proportion of its hardware from Mila for much of those 25 years, and the partnership between the two companies is stronger than ever. Mila’s Area Sales Manager Earl Tate said:

MILA’S ProSecure Handle Gets Ultimate Endorsement

News | Products

Mila’s ProSecure TS007 two star security handle has received what is probably the ultimate endorsement of its quality and performance, having been chosen by a specialist locksmiths company headed up by two ex-police officers.

SheffLOCK which operates across Sheffield and the South Yorkshire region, is now routinely fitting the Mila handle on more than half of its installations, giving customers the choice of either a one star or three star cylinder fitted alongside.

Ex police officers Kevin Hanson and his son Chris both had direct experience of investigating burglaries and advising householders on security prevention before they set up SheffLOCK with Chris’ brother Richard. They knew the importance of installing a visual deterrent in the battle against burglars, and identified the Mila ProSecure handle as providing the ideal combination of quality and value for their customers.

Component supplier of the year award for MILA

News | Awards, Richard Gyde, Managing Director

Mila was named Component Supplier of the Year at the November G-Awards for the third time in seven years. Managing Director Richard Gyde explained some of the secrets behind the company’s ongoing success.

We were the only hardware company to win at the G-17s and in fact we were the only hardware company to even make the shortlists. Because the awards only recognise performance over the previous year, that says a lot, I think, about how well we outperformed the market in 2016/17.  Continue reading…
