Investing in UK manufacturing

Exlabesa Building Systems has installed a £4.5 million extrusion press at its Doncaster headquarters, which will take capacity to 18,000 tonnes a year.

General manager of Exlabesa Building Systems Paul Benn said: “As our business continues to grow, this investment ensures we can continue to deliver for our growing customer base.

“We’re big believers in UK manufacturing as this investment proves. We have also invested heavily in new automated handling system further increasing our commitment to the UK market. Plus, as a UK aluminium extrusion company selling to UK-based customers, our environmental impact is reduced.

“Having complete control over our manufacturing processes is important to us and our customers.”

Exlabesa Building Systems will be launching two new ranges in the coming months.
