P&P invests in additional Haffner machinery

P&P Trade Windows has expanded its fabrication capabilities by purchasing three additional machines from Haffner.

Amongst the machine investment is Haffner’s popular SBA-2 machining centre, which is said to be renowned for its ability to increase capacity and improve the quality and manufacturing output for fabricators.

Paul French, director at P&P Trade Windows, said: “Given our positive experience with Haffner’s machines in the past and considering the inefficiency of our previous machining centre, we turned to them for our latest investment. The SBA-2 machining centre has significantly increased the quality and speed of our output.”

According to Haffner, the SBA-2 machining centre is known for its heavy-duty design and use of top-quality parts, which guarantee ‘years of reliable service’.

Its user-friendly interface facilitates programming, control and adjustments, allowing fabricators to efficiently scale production output as needed. Capable of performing various operations including sawing, routing and drilling, Haffner adds that the SBA-2 is the ‘preferred choice’ for fabricators seeking versatility and high-quality performance.

Additionally, P&P Trade Windows purchased a second SMR-5 welder and a single head welder. Described as the fastest and most accurate welder on the market, the SMR-5 can weld one complete window every four minutes, supercharging production output.

Paul commented: “Having experienced the exceptional quality, scalability and efficiency of our initial SMR-5 welder, we had no hesitation in returning to Haffner for our second purchase. Its ease of operation and unparalleled quality speak for themselves.”

Beyond speeding up production, the SMR-5 incorporates innovative features that enhance product quality and reduce waste. Factory-set parameters and automatic alignment mechanisms for transom fences and corner fences contribute to streamlined fabrication, adding value to the fabrication process.

P&P Trade Windows was also keen to commend Haffner for the exemplary service throughout the purchasing process. Paul said: “It’s rare to encounter a company where the CEO and managing director personally engage with clients to tailor machine solutions to their specific needs, but that’s precisely the level of dedication we experienced with Haffner.

Dave Thomas and Matt Thomas provided invaluable guidance and oversaw the entire process seamlessly, from initial consultation to installation and training.”

Whilst all of Haffner’s machines come with an extended warranty, P&P Trade Windows opted for an additional service contract to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Paul said: “Whilst Haffner’s machines are highly reliable, the service contract offers an extra layer of assurance that we value.”

Located in Martock, Somerset, P&P Trade Windows specialises in manufacturing PVC-U windows, doors and conservatories.

With a wealth of experience exceeding 50 years in installation and manufacturing, the company supplies customers across the South West.
