Exlabesa completes £4.5m investment

Exlabesa Building Systems has announced the installation and completion of a £4.5 million extrusion press at its Doncaster headquarters. The investment will take capacity to 18,000 tonnes a year.

General manager of Exlabesa Building Systems, Paul Benn, said: “As our business continues to grow, this investment ensures we can continue to deliver for our growing customer base.

“We’re big believers in UK manufacturing as this investment proves. We have also invested heavily in new automated handling systems, further increasing our commitment to the UK market. Plus, as a UK aluminium extrusion company selling to UK-based customers, our environmental impact is reduced.”

With ‘end-to-end’ control of its manufacturing, Exlabesa Building Systems produces a wide range of aluminium systems, including casement windows, bi-folding doors, patio doors, tilt turn windows, curtain walling, rebated thermal doors and thermal and non-thermal shop fronts. The company says it will be launching two new ranges in the coming months.
