Roseview Windows gets second Haffner SBA-4 VS

Roseview Windows has taken delivery of a second SBA-4 VS PVC-U profile machining centre from the machinery specialists at Haffner. Mike Bygrave, sales and marketing director for the vertical slider manufacturer Roseview Windows, said: “Roseview has witnessed a sharp upturn in demand in the past 18 months as a result of the continued popularity of feature-rich sash windows. Our investment in this new machine will give us a big increase in capacity and further support our continued strategy for growth.”

The second machine arrives on the shop floor just 12 months after the business got its first Haffner VS machining centre. “We invested in our first SBA-4 VS machining centre to replace an ageing machine and upgrade efficiencies across the shop floor,” Mike explained. “It made such a huge difference to our fabrication capabilities that we had no hesitation in ordering a second machine to support our business growth trajectory and maintain our quality sash window output.

“We have a trusted partnership with Haffner based on cooperation and support. There was no reason to go anywhere else.”

The SBA-4 VS PVC-U profile machining centre is driven by technical innovation and high-performance accuracy which makes it ideal for manufacturing both standard and mechanically jointed vertical sliders, according to the business’ representatives. As with all of Roseview’s fabrication machines, the new machining centre has been given an easily identifiable name, as Mike detailed: “We name all our machines after Nintendo characters. The first machine we purchased from Haffner is called Bowser. This new one is Yoshi. We also have a Mario, Luigi and Super Mario.”
