Swainstons sign up to Stellar

Longstanding Epwin Window Systems fabricator, Swainstons, has signed a three-year supply agreement to manufacture the Stellar Aluminium window and door system.

Liam McClorey, general manager at Swainstons, said: “We have worked with Epwin for many years and fabricate its Optima PVC-U system, so we know first-hand the quality of the products and the business support available. Introducing Stellar to our portfolio will allow us to further extend our market reach as the appetite for aluminium products increases.”

The move into aluminium fabrication has seen the Stockton-on-Tees fabricator expand its operation by opening a second adjacent factory to provide the much-needed capacity to manufacture its Stellar products.

Liam said: “The six-figure investment in the new dedicated Stellar fabrication plant will deliver exceptional efficiencies across the business and ensure we deliver a quick and reliable service for our aluminium products, enhancing our competitive edge in the market.”

Swainstons will manufacture a range of Stellar products including the Stellar flush window, slimline bi-fold door, tilt and turn window and the Stellar slimline sliding door.

Liam said: “We have already received interest for Stellar from the commercial sector, which underscores the market’s demand for high-quality aluminium windows and doors. As an Epwin approved commercial partner, we are confident Stellar will open up additional opportunities for us.”

Katrina Earl, sales director at Epwin, said: “Swainstons is an established and well-respected fabricator in the North East, renowned for delivering a superior quality product and prides itself on working with innovative product partners. We are delighted they have chosen Stellar for their aluminium expansion and look forward to further developing this longstanding relationship.”
