Specialising in the Agile Supply of Grade 6063 Aluminium Extrusion, we understand that successful trade extrusion is about more than just price, it’s about service and support levels coupled to reliable supply.
We’ve invested over £15 million to-date in ensuring our service and quality is second to none. Designed and refurbished to the highest standards, our 100,000 sq ft factory, based in Derbyshire is the most modern aluminium facility in the UK. Our attention to detail enables us to offer the most reliable, consistent service possible.
The SMS HYBREX aluminium press that sits at the heart of our operation utilizes high speed die changes to maximise production efficiency. Best practice lean manufacturing calls for Single Minute Exchange of Dies, but our tool changes are six times faster. Featuring high levels of automation, our plant has a 54m long cutting and stacking area, which feeds into our annealing oven. All supported by the latest integrated computer systems.
Manufacturing in the UK, we are committed to keeping our products environmental impact as low as possible.
Building on years of experience, we’ve incorporated many new innovative ideas to create the Sheerline range of window, door, bi-fold and lantern systems. Creating warm, slim and ultra secure products, designed for discerning homeowners who aren’t willing to compromise. Built around our innovative Thermlock® multi-chamber thermal break, Sheerline windows use a patented construction method that creates the most beautiful, high quality finish possible. Stylish, safe and sustainable – and offered with unbeatable service levels – Sheerline is the right choice for homeowners, installers and fabricators.
