AluK fabricator Alu-tec has boosted its factory production space by over half with the addition of an extra 5,800sqft dedicated to bifolds and patios, freeing extra space for fabricating windows and doors.
A new bead saw set-up has also been installed to increase beading capacity, and a further saw has been ordered for facilitating larger profiles such as curtain walling.
The company has also appointed a new estimator and order processor to support trade and commercial buyers and extended its office to accommodate four further new staff members in the future.
Director Phil Bates, pictured, explained: “We’ve seen consistent growth over the past eight years as our reputation has grown for quality windows and doors in AluK, backed up by a wealth of knowledge and industry experience.
“The excellent relationship we have with AluK, and the scale and efficiency of our operation means we can always offer high quality products at competitive prices, so even if demand does start to falter, we have every reason to be confident about what lies ahead. We still have big ambitions to increase the amount of commercial work we take on, as well as welcoming new trade customers and showing them why Alu-tec and AluK are the right supply partners.”
He added: “Later this year, we’ll be introducing the AluK SL52 curtain walling system, which is already well proven in the commercial market, and will be amongst the first to launch the new AluK patio door to the trade.”
Alu-tec is part of The Climatec Group.
