Exclusive machinery partnership

Haffner has signed an exclusive supply partnership with Italian machine supplier Graf Synergy.

The new partnership will give Haffner the largest and most comprehensive machine portfolio in the industry and will further consolidate Graf Synergy’s presence in the UK fenestration market, the company said.

Dave Thomas, Haffner’s managing director, said: “Graf Synergy offers state-of-the-art automated machinery at every level. By working with Graf Synergy, we’ll be able to offer even more choice to fabricators and further cement our position as the go-to machinery experts.”

Graf Synergy delivers a range of machines for both aluminium and PVCU fabrication. It is known for its seamless welding technology and patented welding techniques, increasing both fabrication efficiencies and delivering superior product quality.

“The scale of Graf Synergy and the technical innovation behind all their machines complements our comprehensive machine offer perfectly and will help us drive the next level in cutting-edge machine technology for our customers,” Dave said.

Haffner is the sole UK agent of Haffner Machinery, which designs innovative and high-quality engineered products at competitive industry prices, the company said, and it supplies a range of aluminium fabrication machines from Fom Industries, part of the worldwide FomGroup.

Haffner has a team of 10 service engineers, and has recently commissioned several large-scale investments, including doubling the size of its Staffordshire headquarters, adding a new 1,990m2 showroom extension and opening a new 37,000m2 purpose-built factory in Istanbul, Turkey.

“The new partnership with Graf Synergy, along with our level of expansion, is a clear indication of our continued success,” Dave said. “The new exclusive collaboration will blend the innovative expertise of the two businesses and provide a transformative approach to machine technology to deliver the best in fabrication machinery.”

The Graf Synergy machines will accompany a large-scale range of machinery on Haffner’s 405m2 stand at FIT Show 2021.
