Trellidor Franchise of the Year 2017/2018: Bethlehem

Trellidor Bethlehem, owned by Michael Wheatley, has received the ‘MD’s Award for Franchise of the Year 2017/2018’ and is also the winner of Category C (smaller franchises) in the Franchise Competition. Under Michael’s leadership, the Bethlehem franchise surpassed all targets for the year by substantial percentages.


The franchise was originally owned by Michael’s parents, who purchased it in 1988. Michael bought it from them in 2000 and it has been growing steadily ever since, with 2017/2018 being a landmark year for the team.

“We have won Trellidor awards before but this one is very prestigious. It is great recognition for my committed, hard-working team. We all value honesty in our dealings with customers and each other, no matter what the outcome,” said Michael.


The best-selling products in this region are Trellidor Retractable T700 sliding gate, which reflects the original Trellidor design and is seen as the best option for homes. Trellidor Security Shutter louvres, one of the new ranges, is starting to sell very well due to its attractive design, strengthening features and practical operation.


“We are a farming community and local farmers are under attack, so our Trellidor Plus T900 sliding security gates are popular for these more isolated homes. These gates have additional strengthening features that stand up well when attacked. They have been certified for strength under attack to Level 1 by the London-based Loss Prevention Certification Board.”
