As one of the UK’s most well established and well recognised fabricators, the company has instigated this extensive development programme to accommodate increase in demand for the entire product range and to streamline production.
Investment in new machinery totalling approximately £1m as well as expansion and refurbishment of the 35,000 sq. ft factory, enables the company now to produce over 1000 windows every week.
This is the latest in a number of substantial investment programmes that have been initiated by senior management over the last few years due to the company’s steady growth, and there is more promised for customers. Already, these developments have helped to strengthen the frameXpress brand throughout the industry in respect of quality, durability and performance.
FrameXpress Ltd has an extensive portfolio which incorporates PVC-u Windows, Doors and Conservatories, with “A” rated windows manufactured as standard in a variety of PVC-u from Profile 22 Systems. Composite Doors, Biflold doors and Aluminium products add to the comprehensive range available.
Directors Mark Westbrook and Stuart Green have over 55 years combined experience in the window industry which has established the company as the success it is today.
After major investment in machinery from Winmac UK Ltd, which includes a new SCHIRMER BAZ-1000-G6-VU2-VO “Tandem” Cutting and Machining Centre that is recognised as one of the fastest and most accurate machines of its type on the market, the company is set to further raise the benchmark. Two new ROTOX SMK 505 In-Line Five and Four Head Welders, were also installed along with an SEK701 Butt Welder and an LA 396PC Electronic Measuring system for Bead Measuring.
This equipment complements 3 other ROTOX CNC Corner Cleaners, a Crucifix Welder and a Quad Welder already installed at the company. frameXpress is now set to reinforce its corporate position with a 61 strong team and national delivery fleet which underpins the corporate ethos of providing premium quality standards and customer satisfaction.
Mark Westbrook, Managing Director comments: “Since the equipment has been installed we have seen faster manufacturing speeds and greater accuracy. I wish we had made this investment with Winmac UK years ago. Their overall support and technical advice during installation demonstrates why this is a positive Partnership.”
At times when many companies have struggled to maintain positive trading results, frameXpress has sustained a strong corporate position. More recently, this has been validated further by the team being bolstered. Recruitment and internal restructuring has been initiated recently with the establishment of a number of key middle management positions to reinforce customer services.
Ian Davis, Sales Director comments “frameXpress has a notable reputation for high quality standards and a progressive approach to the industry with the entire portfolio proving very popular. Bolstering the team as well as expanding facilities gives us even greater scope for development.”
Stuart Green, Managing Director concludes, “Expansion is an essential aspect of growth which enables us to provide customers with fast and efficient services. By investing in modern equipment we can provide faster turnarounds that our customers can rely upon.”
Sales Director of Winmac UK, Kevin Noray, says: “it has been a pleasure to work with all of the team at FrameXpress and to be part of their success. I am sure that there will be more improvements over the coming years as they strive to remain – “ahead of the game.” “
