Roofglaze Invests in Increased Capacity to Meet Growing Demand
Roofglaze has doubled the capacity of its production facility at the company’s Cambridgeshire headquarters, to meet the increasing demand for its new range of Flatglass rooflights.
5,000 square feet of additional factory space has been created, to accommodate new machinery and a growing factory team now totalling 14 people.
Chris Morgan, Operations Director at Roofglaze, said: “The Flatglass range is selling extremely well, particularly to customers in London and the Home Counties. The design of the product has been well-received and this has been reflected in the sales. We are now looking to develop this product range further, with new options and features to be added to it in due course.”
Recent investment in manufacturing equipment has seen the company install a new gantry crane allowing easier and more efficient handling of large components during production, as well as a guillotine and press brake for the manufacture of flashings and ancillary items, resulting in gains in quality and reductions in lead time.
Production can now be undertaken at the rate of up to 20 units per day or more. Flatglass rooflights can be manufactured to order, or supplied in any of a wide range of standard sizes.
