    Tip#2. Double-check the grade you buy is actually specified

    Is the grade you buy really your only option?

    Have you checked if the drawing says ‘or alternative’ or lists another grade?

    Very often moulders are paying premium prices for a specified grade they believe they have to buy – without ever checking if they have the flexibility to buy another grade.

    What does this mean? This means missing out on the potential opportunity to source a lower-priced alternative grade.

    It’s limited business thinking.

    Hardie Polymers have an extremely wide reach of suppliers, meaning we have access to both the grade you are using and better price options for you.

    Hardie Polymers have spent the last fifteen years building the most comprehensive supply network across Europe. We have over 350 suppliers, ensuring we can offer you all the major specified grades. We also price-check the same product across multiple suppliers and countries, so that we can give you the best price every time.
