The Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Investment and MLA, Arlene Foster today visited MALPLAS uPVC Windows and Doors to discuss the opportunities that have been opened between Australia and Northern Ireland for future business. The Minister was pleased to see that Gerry Mallon, Managing Director of MALPLAS and Karen Porter, Managing Director of Solace Creations uPVC Windows and Doors had implemented a trade program that will see monthly shipments of windows and doors from Northern Ireland to Australia.
Karen is excited about the opportunity to provide high quality windows and doors to the Australian market at a price that is competitive. Karen noted that MALPLAS is able to export windows and doors to Australia that are higher quality than that available in Australia.
Gerry has been researching the Australian market for about 18 months and could see that his company could add value to the Australian industry and also provide an injection of funds back into the Northern Ireland economy. Gerry and Karen both remarked that the partnership between MALPLAS and Solace Creations was a formidable force and together they would have a successful trade relationship stretching into the future.
