Benefits of being a G1 Installer

On 1st March 2018, some exciting changes were introduced to Grant UK’s Installer Scheme! To read more, please click here…


Below is a summary of Scheme benefits:

  • G1 Membership Pack – installers receive a welcome pack (either electronically or hard copy) when first enrolling, which will details what can be offered to the end-user. Furthermore, G-One installers can request Grant technical and sales information (including product brochures), branded clothing, vehicle branding, and much more!
  • Company profile on the Grant UK website – the useful “Find an Engineer” feature on our website aids homeowners and end-users in finding installers in their local area. This search facility exclusively looks up G-One installers so by having a company profile listed on this online platform, installers can increase company awareness.
  • Exclusive access to Grant promotional material – G1 installers can use the G1 accredited installer logo throughout company branding and also use our product imagery on websites and company literature.
  • Be the first to hear of Grant product and business updates – G1 Installers receive monthly e-bulletins which detail the latest Grant news, including product launches, technical updates and forthcoming promotions. G1 installers also have exclusive access to an online portal showing a newsfeed which is regularly updated with industry headlines and Grant updates.
  • Develop greater product and industry knowledge – the Grant Training Academy offers a range of courses, from product specific training through to OFTEC and Logic assessments, all of which can maintain and enhance an installer’s expertise. Courses are held in Devizes and Hawes.
  • Access to sales leads – G1 installers will develop close communications with their local Grant sales representative.  They in turn will recommend suitable accredited installers to merchants and end-users. Additionally, when Grant runs promotions or marketing campaigns, the leads generated will be sent to G1 installers local to the enquiry, meaning installers benefit from the results of a marketing move that they have not had to finance..
  • Extended guarantees – the principal benefit of becoming G1 is that installers can offer extended guarantees on the Grant products installed. As a reflection of the confidence we have in our products and the expertise of G1 installers, we offer the following:
