Scaling up production
D&I Window Solutions is scaling up its operation with investment in numerous aluminium fabrication machines from Haffner Murat.
The large-scale investment is a result of D&I Window Solutions’ strategic expansion into trade manufacture.
David Saxon, director of D&I Window Solutions, said: “We’ve seen a considerable increase in demand for aluminium bifolds in recent months and we spotted an opportunity to capitalise on the growth by expanding into the trade market. When it came to investing in the machinery we needed, Haffner Murat was the only choice for us.”
David was already in discussions with Matt Thomas, area sales manager at Haffner Murat, about replacing some of D&I Window Solutions’ current PVCU machinery when the decision was made to move into trade aluminium.
David explains: “Matt prepared a full machinery package that would enable us to get up to volume quickly and easily. The advice and attention to detail from Matt and his team was invaluable and we appreciated his knowledge, honesty and integrity throughout the buying process.”
D&I Window Solutions will be investing in six new machines in total to set up its new trade production: an Adir C Fom Industrie CNC machining centre; a Panda Echo 300 Fom Industrie pneumatic saw; a Quota Base Fom Industrie 3m discharge roller table; a Porter Fom Industrie 3m infeed roller table; a Crab XL Fom Industrie corner crimper and roller table; and a TT 405 Haffner Murat double mitre saw.
The machines will be installed in February 2021 while following Covid-19 guidelines.
