AT Precision has opened a new extrusion plant, situated at its Durham headquarters.

According to a statement, the facility houses an integrated recycling plant that repurposes post-consumer and industrial PVC-U waste to manufacture recycled thermal reinforcement (RTR) bars, reducing the reliance on virgin resources.

The RTR bars are made from 100% recycled PVC-U, the statement said. They add strength and increased thermal performance to windows, are quick and easy to install, and boast a minimum lifespan of 35 years, it noted.

AT Precision said that the extrusion plant has also allowed it to expand into the roofing market with a new range of roof laths and joists. The EcoLath range is also made from 100% recycled PVC-U due to the new in-house recycling scheme, the company added.

Michael Hewitt, AT Precision’s sales director, said: “Our new extrusion plant represents a pivotal moment for AT Precision. By combining cutting-edge technology with a deep commitment to sustainability, we empower fabricators to offer superior solutions while minimising their environmental impact.

“Together, the production of RTR bars and the extrusion of our EcoLath range of roof laths and joists set a new standard for performance and responsibility within the industry.”
