Strata – the journey so far
It all goes back to 2005, when Aristospray started the supply of render and plaster spraying machines to the UK and Irish construction industry. The years went by and the emphasis at Aristospray moved over more to the supply of paint spraying equipment and consumables. This led to the launch of the
Q-Tech brand – now firmly established as a market leader.
The machine render and plaster contractor was not totally forgotten. Recent developments in the market including the increased use of external wall insulation (EWI) have led to the decision to re-launch a much increased and vastly improved range – with its own distinctive brand. This has been sourced from a number of strategic international suppliers including Giema GmbH, an established German manufacturer of spray render and plaster machines.
Aristospray UK are now the accredited sole importer and supplier of these spray render and plaster machines throughout the UK and Ireland. All of the machines will be sold under the Strata brand. The UK render and plaster contractor and the HSE demand certain features not found on European spec machines and these will be made where appropriate to the complete Strata range from Giema.
The end of 2014 saw another significant development in the growth of Strata as a quality supplier of spray render and floor screed pumps. Lancy, an extremely reputable manufacturer of floor screed and spray render pumps made the strategic decision to appoint Strata as the exclusive importer into the UK and Ireland for their complete range of screed and render pumps. This seal of approval from the manufacturer of the best diesel render and screed mixing pumps is awesome – and is something that Strata will be majoring on through 2015.
Strategic trading relationships have also been established with other market leading manufacturers with a focus on the render and plaster contractor. Some of the more significant ones are
Design and manufacture of an innovative range of machines for the render and plaster contractor including mixers, whisks, conveyors and tubs.
In the front of our recently published Strata Render Solutions Catalogue we have set out our vision. It’s our blueprint, how we intend to operate.
- To source from strategic international suppliers an innovative range of the best quality equipment and supporting ancillaries for the machine render, plaster and floor screed contractor.
- To bring these together under a strong, easily recognised brand.
- To take this range to the UK, Irish and International markets using the most effective means available.
- To ensure that all of this is carried out with clarity, honesty and integrity. Should we fail, it will be corrected.
The first two items we’ve enlarged on already.
Going out to market is critical. We are committed to making available to our rapidly growing customer base of render, plaster and floor screed contractors all of the relevant information in as clear a manner as possible. Whether print or digital, the emphasis will always be on clarity. After all, how can we expect you to buy from us if it’s not clear what you’re buying? We will aim to keep you aware of developments in the spray render and plaster market by regular postal and email updates. However, we respect your privacy – and should you choose to ask us not to mail you in either form this will be actioned. Our aim is that you see us not as a supplier, but as a partner – you’ve got the skills, and Strata have the kit.
For 2015 the first of our international offices will be opening in New South Wales, Australia. This subsidiary will be taking the UK business model and adapting it to suit the unique Australian market – making sure that the range and support that the machine render, plaster and floor screed contractor has access to is correct for his needs.
The final point is for real. If there should be any
mis-understandings, or if we don’t appear to have performed as we ought to have done – please tell us. We like to keep in touch with our customers, and will do everything possible to correct any area of business that you’re not satisfied with.
