Celebrating excellence in paving

On Monday October 17 we are holding our first ever Elite Approved Installer Award Ceremony at the National Self Build and Renovating Centre (NSBRC) in Swindon.  

Our network of Approved Installers support our Installation Team with both residential and commercial resin bound paving projects across the UK.  

Based on a set criteria – most importantly, customer feedback – we have been recognising one company as our Elite Approved Installer of the Year for several years now.  

But due to the growth of SureSet and our network of Approved Installers, we decide to take our Installer of the Year Award to the next level with this first Annual Elite Approved Installer Award Ceremony.  

“We enjoy a great working relationship with our Approved Installers and wanted to recognise their continued support and loyalty to SureSet.  

We think this event provides the perfect opportunity to not only do that, but for our Approved Installers to get together to learn from each other.  

It also gives them a chance to meet the SureSet staff they talk to on a daily basis which will further strengthen relationships.”

John Fletcher, Key Accounts Manager  

Sponsored by Dural UK and Long Rake Spar, this inaugural event will take place on Monday, October 17 at the NSBRC in Swindon, where we have a permanent exhibition (Stand 154).  

Three Awards will be presented: Elite Approved Installer of the Year, Project of the Year and Customer Service.

Two SureSet Approved Installers, Botanica and NW Paving, will make presentations and there will be a demonstration by Quicksetts.

Dural UK developed and manufactured our first profiles back in 1981 – 34 years later we are now a major supplier around the world providing support to over 70 countries. Our technical knowledge, customer service, and down to earth attitude at Dural UK has steered us to becoming the top subsidiary and led us to work with brilliant companies like SureSet!  

Residential and commercial resin bound paving has gone from strength to strength throughout the years and we have developed a resin range of products showcased in a dedicated profile brochure to support the sector, featuring speckled movement joints, straight or formable edging trims and aid the longevity and aesthetics of the resin bound surface.    

Working in conjunction with SureSet we have developed our movement joints alongside their products to seamless blend into the surface design meaning the end surface not only looks beautiful but is protected against movement and will last, as part of our profiles system.
