Graham Churchill, Managing Director of Topline, explains the advantages of the new approach: “We buy black, grey and white SWISSPACER bars in sizes 6mm to 20mm directly from SWISSPACER. It makes good business sense, as it eliminates a step in the supply chain and we benefit from better packaging, improved stock control and a cleaner product. Buying directly also keeps us right up-to-date with information on the latest developments. Overall, it’s been a very positive move!
