New factory ramps up production

AT Precision has opened a new 18,000ft2 factory at its premises in Durham, scaling up production of its Everglide hardware range.

The new factory houses state-of-the-art hardware manufacturing machinery to produce the range, which includes PAS24:2016 accredited bifolding door rollers, high-quality top guides, pull handles, hinges, cleats and shootbolt handles, all of which are made from cast aluminium and are compatible with major systems.

The company has also bought in a new flexible extrusion line, designed for the production of Everseal, its new range of gaskets, which can accommodate any aluminium system on the market.

“Our Everseal gaskets can replicate any gasket line for any aluminium systems company, while offering outstanding performance and great value,” AT Precision sales director Michael Hewitt, said.

“Opening a new factory and taking on more staff means we can really ramp up production of both our Everglide and Everseal ranges, ensuring that we’re never short of supply.

“It’s also allowed for more space on our premises, meaning we’re able to store at least three months’ worth of hardware in our warehouse.”

Both Everglide and Everseal products come with a 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
