The FairTrades Trade Association was established in June 1983 and its pioneering approach quickly established it as the premier multi-trade association for glaziers, builders, roofers and many more trades besides.
Fair Trades Ltd was purchased by HomePro.com in 2000.
During this time the business gained membership to the General Insurance Standards Council (GISC) and won the Microsoft Digital Britain Award for maximising consumer value using IT.
The HomePro Insurance brand was created in 2001.
HomePro Insurance has been offering trade related insurance products to Trade Professionals ever since.
In 2002 FairTrades/HomePro was presented with "Insurance Times Innovation of the Year Award" by the insurance market and launched on the internet shortly thereafter.
A few years after, in 2006, FairTrades became a Scheme Operator for TrustMark.
This relationship has grown from strength to strength over the years with many of our members electing to join TrustMark through FairTrades.
FairTrades/HomePro went on to purchase IPWFI (Incorporation of Plastic Window Fabricators and Installers) in 2007.
Today, Fair Trades 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 our current members on their business cards and advertisements, vans and in their showrooms.
