Prestige Aluminium invests in second Haffner machine

Aluminium fabricator, Prestige Aluminium has invested in a Fom Industrie FMC 120 machining centre from Haffner to support its rapid expansion. 

Introduced to help increase manufacturing output and improve efficiencies, the machine was delivered at the beginning of August and was reported to be up and running just 48 hours later.

Prestige Aluminium was founded less than 12-months ago and this is the second machine the team has purchased from Haffner.

Gavin Taylor, managing director of Prestige Aluminium, said: “We purchased a double mitre saw from Haffner when we began manufacturing earlier this year. We were impressed with the quality and support of the Haffner team, especially Bryan Dando, so we didn’t hesitate to turn to Haffner for our latest purchase.”

The FMC 120 machining centre offers advanced features, including high speed machining and precision drilling. It features three controlled axis and a worktable with pneumatic positioning at 0°, 90° and 180°. Its automated capabilities reduce manual intervention and significantly accelerate production output.

Prestige Aluminium, which is based in Bishop’s Stortford, manufactures the Stellar aluminium system from Epwin Window Systems.

Bryan Dando, commercial director at Haffner, commented: “We were delighted to hear from the Prestige Aluminium team so soon after their first investment. Expansion is always noteworthy but investing for the second time in 10 months demonstrates the strength of Prestige and the quality of its Stellar products.”
