Foils stocked

Aluplast continues to supply stock foils with a rapid turnaround, despite disruption reported to the PVCU foils supply chain by some systems companies, the company has reported.

It added that lead times on non-standard and dual colour foils – normally 15 working days or less – remained largely intact.

Ian Cocken, sales and marketing director at Aluplast, said: “The exponential growth in demand that the UK has seen since the easing of lockdown has put immense pressure on the supply chain, but particularly on foils.

“The investment we have made in our foiling capability means that we have been able to increase capacity in line with demand and maintain service levels.

“This means our stock colours remain in stock here on the ground in the UK, including: anthracite grey on white; anthracite grey both sides on a grey substrate; and smooth options.”

Aluplast’s foil range includes more than 30 finishes, plus Woodec, which is designed to replicate both the aesthetics and feel of timber.

“You can order a stock product from us and have it on your next order,” Ian said. “It’s here in the UK and ready to go. Given the constraints being placed by some systems companies on their fabricators, that is a very distinct advantage to anyone manufacturing in our system.”
