Apeer has announced a £160,000 investment to boost production of both its Silka doors and its Lumi range of aluminium window products. Focusing on investing in machinery at its Ballymena-based factory in Northern Ireland, Apeer claims to be responding to growing demand. A new Emmegi machining centre has been installed at the fabricator’s recently expanded factory, as well as a new mechanical saw.
Asa McGillian, Apeer’s managing director, said: “Quite simply, we need to make this investment in machinery to keep up with the enduring popularity of our Silka doors, along with the consistent and growing demand we’ve seen for our Lumi Aluminium range since its launch last year. Futureproofing our business by investing in the factory processes and machinery is the best way we can ensure that Apeer and Lumi are able to meet future demand for these products.”
Apeer’s latest investment in machinery will benefit production of both the Lumi Aluminium and Apeer Silka ranges. “But this investment is not just about meeting demand while ensuring our high standards of quality and craftsmanship are maintained,” explained Asa. “It’s also about preparing for the upcoming developments we have planned for our Silka range… which we hope to be able to divulge soon, so watch this space!”
