New factory and celebrations
Halo fabricator Scotia Windows and Doors has moved into an expansive new factory in Kilmarnock.
Supported by two trade centres in Alloa and Hamilton, the company is well placed to provide Halo’s industry-leading PVCU systems to an even greater number of discerning trade and commercial customers, the company said.
Scotia’s MD Robert McKnight said: “We’ve now moved into our fantastic new purpose-built production facility and head office in Kilmarnock. The site covers 59,000ft2 and, along with the large, modern building, there are an extensive number of loading bays and plenty of car parking for the convenience of our customers.
“We’ve invested in two new state-of-the-art front end cutting machines to add to our existing window and door manufacturing machinery and all this equipment is now fully installed in the bigger, better building.
“We have taken the opportunity to streamline the production process which will enable us to achieve greater efficiencies, and this capacity means we can likely increase production to 1,600 PVCU frames per week.
“We are extremely proud of the significant growth of our business. Scotia works in partnership with housing associations, property developers, building firms, installers and more. We now have the capacity to support even more customers, and continue supporting them as they grow too.”
Neil Evans, Veka Group’s sales director, said: “Scotia is a great example of a hard-working Halo customer that knows ‘putting customers first’ is key to the success of the business overall. I’m sure that customers across Scotland will make good use of the trade centres to access Scotia’s fantastic product range.”
