Polyframe has recently completed phase two of a ‘major investment programme’ in new machinery at its Halifax manufacturing facility.
A year ago Polyframe installed an 8 head Rotox welding machine and two head automated corner cleaning line. This has now been complimented with the addition of a new automated sash line – again supplied by Rotox.
Chris Watson, Polyframe Group managing director, stated: “As the business has grown and we have become one of the UK’s leading fabricators of PVC-U windows and doors we have continued to invest in plant and machinery. The new sash line will enable us to maintain the quality which our customers expect and at the same time, manage production as volumes increase. As a business, we are constantly looking at how we can improve our product and the levels of service we offer. Without the significant investment we have made, not only at Halifax, but Norwich, Portadown and Mansfield, we would not be in such a strong position to move forward in 2014.”
Polyframe says it will invest in excess of £1million in new plant and machinery in 2014.
