Alutec supports Huws Gray in its anniversary celebrations

Published:  20 April, 2015

Aluminium rainwater system manufacturer Alutec has pledged its support to its merchant partner Huws Gray’s 25th anniversary fundraiser. The celebrations will include significant donations to local charities and a variety of special offers for customers visiting the merchant’s branches.

Nick Glover, head of sales and marketing at Alutec, said: “We’ve got a long-standing working relationship with Huws Gray and are only too happy to support the celebrations, especially when they will help such worthy causes. We pride ourselves on cultivating real partnerships with our merchants, where each party supports the other and I think this is a great example of that.”

Huws Gray is marking its 25th birthday by donating £25,000 to six children’s hospices located throughout its branch network. The hospices have also been chosen as the merchant’s nominated charities for the remainder of 2015, with a number of further fundraising initiatives already planned including a sky dive, half marathon and anniversary raffle.

In addition to its charitable donations, Huws Gray will also be organising 10 anniversary open days at various branches throughout its network. Open to both trade and public, the events will include special visits from suppliers, generous one-day–only promotions and complimentary food and drink.

Dafydd Hughes, marketing manager at Huws Gray, said: “We are very grateful for Alutec’s generous contribution to our celebrations – without the support of our suppliers we would not have been able to mark our anniversary in such a significant way. Alutec has been a valuable supplier for a number of years and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
