A1 UK Glazing Windows, the number one fabricator for installer support, has invested nearly £1 million in expanding capacity and speeding up production including £500,000 in a new Emmegi Quadra top-of-the-range cutting and machining centre for aluminium windows and doors – It’s one of the only three in the UK and makes A1 UK Glazing the most advanced aluminium fabricator in the region.
The new machine allows A1 UK Glazing Windows to send processed orders straight to the cutting centre which then picks up all the various cutting and machining operations required. It will enhance the quality and increase output threefold at the same time as reducing wastage through bar optimisation.
“We continue to invest in the latest technology to enhance our production facility,” says Yogesh Gopal, Operations Director for A1 UK Glazing Windows. “We see the growth trend for aluminium windows and doors continuing and the new Emmegi cutting and machining centre is our commitment to giving customers more choice and a quicker service.
“We started in aluminium fabrication in 1981, and later added PVCu. For several years PVCu was the first choice for domestic installations, while aluminium has remained the top product for commercial. A1 UK Glazing Windows and its trade customers have been at the forefront of growing the sales of aluminium windows and doors in to the domestic sector. This has increased substantially over the past two years, led by sliding and folding doors as more homeowners choose open plan living.”
A1 UK Glazing Windows offers a comprehensive range of aluminium windows and sliding or folding doors for both domestic and commercial projects, with a wide choice of colours and options.
