Building Up To A Bright Future
In January 2005 HomePro was one of the first companies in our sector to achieve *FSA authorisation
(*Replaced by the Financial Conduct Authority in April 2013).
In 2006 FairTrades was welcomed into the Government backed initiative TrustMark, which is supported by consumer protection organizations
and the building industry.
Again we take our customers forward as all members of TrustMark are inspected and approved before being able to trade using the logo.
We opened the doors on the Trade Discount Club bringing new innovative services and extra value to the Home Improvement companies of the UK.
The service was started in 2006 working with B&Q and Speedy Hire.
We now also offer commercial vehicle deals, and a free web hosting facility for all Group members.
During 2007 we acquired the Incorporation of Plastic Window Fabricators and Installers (IPWFI) as an expansion of our market share in
the Insurance Backed Guarantee market place.
During 2014 these relationships were renewed and updated.
Together with B&Q we launched the new & exclusive FairTrades HomePro TradePoint Card and struck a new deal with Travis Perkins Tool Hire which replaced the old Speedy arrangement.
FairTrades also renewed our Best Van Deals agreement giving our members access to fantastic deals on new and used vans.
