My business is a member of the Elite Fairtrades Register. As a trades person, joining this trade association, I believe is probably one of the best decisions I have made.
It enhances our reputation, saves our business time and money as well as increases the home owners confidence by putting us ahead of the competition.
- Rest assured that the trade association’s strict vetting procedure ensures that only the best tradesmen make it into the register.
Fairtrades was established in 1983 as a premier multi trade association for Damp Proofers, Builders, Glaziers, roofers and many more trades besides.
Today, Fairtrades Ltd is a highly successful Trade Association with a very popular tradesmen’s directory.
The Fairtrades logo, featuring the ‘Scales of Justice’ is widely displayed by the current members on their business cards and advertisements, vans and in their showrooms.
