QIC Trims has strengthened its interior building products range with the acquisition of a high-quality aluminium partitioning system.

The demountable interior system, which is suitable for commercial fit-out applications in offices and public buildings such as hospitals and schools, is an ideal accompaniment to QIC’s glass partitioning range. QIC acquired the rights to produce the aluminium portioning system from Telford-based building products manufacturer Libra Systems.

Speaking of the acquisition, Neil Miller, Sales Director at QIC, said: “This is a fantastic agreement for ourselves and Libra Systems. We have purchased a quality product from a manufacturer with an established reputation for excellence. The aluminium partitioning range further enhances our reputation as a go-to provider for products that facilitate first-class commercial fit-outs.”

Key to QIC’s acquisition of the aluminium partitioning range was its fire-rated accreditation. It means the company is purchasing a product of market standing in terms of its usability and safety. This makes it an appropriate addition to QIC’s building product offering. The company’s portfolio also includes ceiling trims, plasterboard trims, glass partitions and a recently added ‘Matrix-Mesh’ ceiling tile range, with each custom-designed product an enabler to creating inspiring interior spaces.

Simon Scowcroft, Managing Director at Libra Systems, said the decision to sell its aluminium partitioning range will allow the company to focus on further developing its core product offering. The privately-owned company, which was founded 50 years ago, is one of the UK’s leading distributors of drywall metal products. Hence, greater resources will now be afforded to expanding its stud and track solutions for drylining.

Simon said: “When we decided to sell the aluminium partitioning range, QIC Trims was the first company we approached. Their client base includes many established contractors, so our tried-and-tested product seemed an ideal fit for their portfolio. We hope this acquisition will open up further business between ourselves and QIC Trims.”
