£250K investment to ‘bring down lead times’

universal archesUniversal Arches says it has seen ‘incredible growth’ over the last two years, and the recent purchase of its premises in St Helens and plans to invest a further £250,000 during 2015, ‘will help support this’.

During the last decade, the bending company says it has pioneered the use of 3D computer modelling, helped to eliminate the use of hand made templates in 76% of jobs, implemented a new direct collect and delivery service and launched fully glazed and coloured frames.

Universal Arches is currently manufacturing 65 hand made frames per day, which will reportedly take sales to in excess of £2million in the company’s current trading year, equating to an estimated 65% market share. The company hopes that the £250,000 investment will help to reduce lead times in 2015.

Leon Day, managing director of Universal Arches, said: “Without question, our pedigree and finished product is the envy of the bending sector and market demand has seen our sales nearly double in the last two years. For 2015, our investment plans will help bring down our lead times and make us more efficient within the confines of our ISO 9001:2008 certification.”
