Gemini UPVC adds Stellar Aluminium

Gemini UPVC has signed a three-year supply agreement with Epwin Window Systems to manufacture the Stellar aluminium window and door system. 

Michael Griffiths, managing director at Gemini UPVC, said: “We chose Stellar because we wanted to align with a systems company that offered a compelling aluminium offer and Stellar ticked all the boxes. As an added internal advantage, Stellar uses the same software, Evolution from Business Micros, that we use for our PVC-U fabrication and costings, which has been a huge benefit.”

Michael also highlighted the system’s aesthetics and ease of installation. He commented: “I’m looking forward to showcasing the Stellar flush window and residential door with our customers. I also sense the pre-gasketed slimline bi-fold door is going to be a big hit with our bi-fold customers too.”

Gemini’s partnership with Epwin is said to represent a strategic move to expand its product offer and meet the growing demand for aluminium window and door products.

Michael said: “The PVC-U market is holding steady, and we are seeing an uptick in enquiries about aluminium, so now is the perfect time to bring Stellar on board. Whilst we primarily operate throughout the Northwest, we are confident that Stellar will open up new possibilities for customers seeking high-quality aluminium products in their areas.”

Gemini UPVC’s team had a week-long training session with a Stellar engineer to bed the system into its fabrication setup. The first order to leave the factory was for 60 flush windows, four flush residential doors and 10 sets of slimline bi-fold doors, immediately demonstrating the market appeal for the aluminium system.

Katrina Earl, sales director at Epwin, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Gemini UPVC to Stellar. The company has an outstanding reputation for excellence in the PVC-U sector and we’re looking forward to seeing that reputation expand to aluminium.”
