Epwin Group Window Systems Division has increased its foiling capacity by 25% with the opening of a new £1.3m finishing facility. This is the first step on a journey of significant investment for the systems house under the stewardship of new managing director, Clare O’Hara.
The plant enables the division, inclusive of Profile 22, Spectus Window Systems, Swish Windows & Doors and PatioMaster, to respond effectively and efficiently to the rising demand for foiled products; helping to drive down lead times and achieve higher service levels.
Commenting on the opening of the new foiling plant, Epwin Group Window Systems Division managing director, Clare O’Hara said: “This investment is about more than just enhancing our product offering, it’s about being responsive; making us easier to deal with. The demand for foiled windows is showing no sign of abating; in fact the latest D&G report states that it is now up to 22%. In building the new plant we are already one step ahead of the curve. We’ve increased capacity and ramped up the number and volume of stocked foiled product; both are tangible business benefits for our customers.”
The new facility will carry 1500 tonnes of stocked profile, housed within a 60,000 square foot facility, in what is believed to be the largest foiling facility of its kind in the UK.
