Haffner celebrates longstanding partnership

Haffner is celebrating a partnership with Sterling PVCu, one of the North West’s largest fabricators, that has spanned over two decades.

During its extensive partnership, Sterling PVCu has purchased over 25 machines from Haffner. This investment includes the first SBA machining centre, commissioned in 2002, which was followed by additional SBA machining centres, welders, corner cleaners, double mitre saws and routers.

Recently, Sterling PVCu completed a significant investment programme. Dave Mulholland, general manager at Sterling PVCu, said: “Haffner has an excellent reputation in the industry for delivering reliable, high performance machinery, so we didn’t hesitate to turn to them for our latest investment. This has included the purchase of four new SBA machining centres, multiple in-line welders, corner cleaners and a new Graf Synergy SLS CNC seamless cill welder. This extensive package ensures we can further maximise our operational efficiencies to support our growth strategy.”

Established in September 1993, Sterling PVCu is dedicated to delivering high-quality windows, doors and conservatories in PVC-U, aluminium and composite profiles. With over 30 years of industry expertise, the company operates three dedicated factories in Warrington, manufacturing and installing high-quality products for the trade and domestic markets.

With a capacity to manufacture over 2,000 frames per week, Sterling PVCu relies on the reliability and performance of Haffner’s machines. Dave said: “As part of an ongoing maintenance contract, we receive regular servicing by Haffner’s qualified engineers, which guarantees optimal machine performance and minimises any downtime. This gives us a layer of reassurance for volume output consistency.”

Sterling PVCu’s future plans include further expanding its aluminium manufacturing capacity and diversifying its PVC-U product range. This includes casement windows, flush sash windows, single residential doors, French doors, patios, bi-folds, composite doors and fully accredited FD30 fire doors.

Dave concluded: “Our partnership with Haffner has been a cornerstone of our success. Their reliable machinery and continued support have allowed us to consistently deliver high-quality products to our customers. We look forward to continuing this successful collaboration.”
