The 36,000 square foot facility, situated opposite the company’s head office and fabrication plant in Rugby, is the result of a great deal of work in readiness for the launch which took place on 23rd September, with the official opening conducted by Mark Pawsey MP and in the presence of (The Worshipful) the Mayor of Rugby, Councillor Mr Richard Dodd.It allows Nationwide Windows to further control the entire production process, in keeping with its existing status as a vertically integrated manufacturer and installer, but now additionally incorporating IGU manufacture into the supply chain.
Managing Director at Nationwide Windows, John Whalley, comments: “We had a fantastic day at the opening of our new IGU manufacturing facility. It was a great way to mark our 30th anniversary this year, to bring all of our customers and partners together to thank them for their support, and to officially open the new IGU plant. The facility will further ensure that we have full control over all of our processes, to the benefit of our customers, and it has capacity to produce 3,500 units per week, including toughened and laminated glass. All units are Argon filled and use the latest warm edge technology for optimum thermal efficiency.
“The new space also means that we can future proof the business as a whole to allow for further growth and recruitment, with additional parking, office space and a training facility. We’ve worked hard with our partner companies to source the best machinery and equipment available to ensure that the fully automated facility was able to hit the ground running at point of launch. Watch this space for more updates in the coming months.”
