Skypods ‘fly’ into Burton business park

Burton-based TradeFix Building Plastics is moving manufacturing of its bespoke skypods to its site on Sovereign Business Park.

Skypods are thermally efficient uPVC ‘roof lanterns’ that can effectively breathe new life into any area of the home underneath an existing flat roof. They give a room greater height and improve light – and they can increase the value of your home.

Glenn Wadsley and Chris Holton, who founded TradeFix almost 18 months ago, believe that moving manufacturing to the unit on Hawkins Lane will give customers a more personal and satisfying experience.

Glenn, who has 22 years’ experience in the business, said: “Both Chris and I have lots of experience in building skypods and now, by moving manufacturing to our unit, customers will be able to see their designs come to life. We offer a free site survey within 10 miles and promise not to be beaten on price or service. We also have a quick turnaround, meaning that the beautiful skypod could be within your home within a matter of days. Send us your drawings!”

TradeFix was set up in 2017 when Glenn and Chris saw a gap in the market for selling quality products – such as soffits, facias, composite decking, bathrooms, drainage solutions, windows and doors – with a personal touch. They also sell various building essentials on their counter, including drill bits, screws and tape measures.

The pair are proud to be hands-on with their clients and believe that’s what makes them different. Their products have recently been used on building work at Repton School and Derby County’s Moor Farm training ground.

“We understand that we have long-standing competition in this area but we believe our products are the best available on the market,” said Glenn.

“Our prices are very competitive and we will beat any like-for-like prices. The feedback we’re getting from people who are trying our products has been very positive and we’re getting lots of repeat customers.”

They sell their products to both trade and the public. TradeFix also offers a free delivery service to customers within a 20-mile radius.
