Glass line investment

Victorian Sliders recently invested over £half-a-million in sealed unit production.

With the acquisition of a £250,000 Lisec fully automated sealed unit line, the company has expanded its glass capacity in time for what it calls its busiest year.

Group managing director Andy Jones said: “A lot of people don’t realise that Victorian Sliders isn’t really a fabricator – it’s a manufacturer.

“Fabricators put together components they’ve bought from elsewhere. At Victorian Sliders, we do it all ourselves – the extruding, the sealed units, the foiling, the painting, the vacuum forming, the recycling, and more.

“With the Lisec machine, we’re now able to produce more sealed units, more efficiently – something that will prove vital as we seek to ramp up our volumes in the year ahead.”

Victorian Sliders has invested more than £10 million in the last five years, acquiring an extensive range of cutting, welding, cleaning and extrusion equipment.

“Next year, we’ll be investing a further £1.8 million, taking our recycling operation to the next level, and unveiling a number of exciting new additions to our product range,” Andy said.
