Dekko Window Systems, the Residence 9, Deceuninck and Kommerling fabricator, has embarked on the latest stage of its ambitious growth strategy with the opening of a new manufacturing facility.
Based in Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire, the 55,000 square foot factory is kitted out with over £1m worth of manufacturing equipment; including three machining centres, enabling Dekko to manufacture their comprehensive product range more efficiently than ever before. The new factory is positioned near major motorway links, giving Dekko’s fleet easy access to delivery routes across the UK.
Sales director Kurt Greatrex comments: “Dekko has experienced incredible growth over the past 18 months and the extra space will enable us to continue this trajectory well into the future. While moving factory can be quite challenging, the move has given us the opportunity to re-evaluate our processes and organise our operations so we are producing frames in a leaner, more efficient way. I’d like to thank our customers for their support during the move and I’m pleased to say we are now fully operational, meaning customers are benefiting from an even better service.”
Dekko is in the process of launching several major new products and the new space means Dekko can seamlessly include these within their production sequence. New products from Dekko include the Slide and Swing door and Monorail patio door, with aluminium bi-folds planned for the near future.
Kurt comments: “There are big opportunities at the higher end of the market, particularly the door market where there has been a boom in impressive wide-span entrance solutions, and this is an area we are keen to help installers take advantage of. The move to new premises means we are able to launch this exciting new door products while still offer the same level of quality our Residence 9, Deceuninck and Kommerling customers have come to expect.”
