The Glazerite UK Group has completed the latest phase of its ambitious expansion programme with a major step-up to a 30,000 sq ft Special Products plant, with plans already underway for the next phase.

The company's aclaimed Vertical Sliders, Residence Collection products and the VEKA Imagine bi-fold, patio and flush doors will all be made in the purpose-equipped factory by a specially-trained fabrication team with its own dedicated management and Quality Control systems. 

The new unit, close to Glazerite's Wellingborough HQ, is more than twice the size off its original Specials factory opened in 2014 and gives further capacity for the group's ever-growing range of niche, premium and specialist windows and doors. 

"These are all specialist products," said Group Director Jason Thompson, "So they deserve specialist attention, both in the technology of the manufacturing processes and in the skills of the people involved at all levels. The fact that we have outgrown the original Specials factory in less than three years shows how not only the range but also the volume of demand for these products has grown in that short time. By adding this very spacious new factory, we are not only showing our commitment to the future growth of these products but also adding ample capacity to give the same attention to whatever future trensds have yet to emerge."

The launch of the new unit also gives Glazerite a fourth specific production centre, along with Halo fabrication at Glazerite East, the former City Beads factory in Peterborough acquired by the Group last year, and its mainsteam VEKA production at Wellingborough and Bolton.

Jason explained the philosophy behind the move: 

"We offer one of the most comprehensive product ranges available anywhere but our customers deserve more than just a Jack-of-all-trades. On the other hand, some specialist fabricators have a very limited product offering. Now, with the three seperate centres, each with its own dedicated skills and production lines, we can offer three distinct centres of expertise all from a single buying point."

The second phase of development at the Wellingborough site, which will include a showroom and training facility as well as a trade counter to serve its local customer base, is due to be completed early in 2018.
