  VBH24 means customers can place orders, track orders (whether placed online or via phone), check stock levels and pricing, search for part numbers, view and download invoices and much more. Ordering products can be made even easier and quicker by creating a ‘Favourites’ List, or by uploading CSV data files that contain the VBH part number. Those with an up-to-date credit account can place orders and they will be processed automatically.
Gary Gleeson, Marketing Manager at VBH, adds: “Not only can our updated webshop be used to place bulk hardware orders, it’s also designed to make it simple to select and order the components needed for individual windows and doors, or to price on tender documentation, for example.
