The Sash Window Workshop has now opened a second purpose-designed workshop in Bracknell, Berkshire. The workshop is next door to its existing purpose-built workshop, and will allow the business to expand its manufacturing capabilities and meet growing demand for traditional timber windows and doors.
As part of the expansion, the company has also implemented a new, streamlined painting process, using a Cefla paint line. The team hopes that the new paint line will help increase the quantity of windows and doors that can be painted at any time without having to substitute quality of the painting. Also, to help the joinery production team keep up with the new paint line, the Sash Window Workshop has installed a second Homag computer numeric control (CNC) machine this month, which accurately cuts timber for windows and doors.
Richard Dollar, managing director of the Sash Window Workshop, explained:
“Having started from nothing, with a hand-to-mouth existence in 1994, we are very proud of the success of our business. This success has enabled us to make a £1m+ investment this year into new premises, plant and equipment.
“We have always made our own windows and doors in the UK, allowing us to closely manage the quality of our products. Also, most importantly, it provides job opportunities locally.
“Roughly half our orders every year come from recommendations and existing customers. We believe future success depends on continuing to provide outstanding products alongside excellent customer service and making sure that every day we try to do things even better.”
The company celebrated seven years of being a Which? Trusted Trader last month. Read more about the business online at sashwindow.com.
