Camden, the largest independent supplier of PVC-u windows and doors in the UK and Ireland, has put plans in place to expand even further to keep up with customer demand. To assist with this multi-million pound investment Camden called in Dave Thomas, Managing Director at Haffner Murat Ltd.
The door factory will see the addition of two NR242 high speed machining centres, plus welding and assembly lines to speed up and ensure accuracy of the cut and prepped doors. The aim of the upgrade was to create a fully automated factory that delivered the output and quality Camden’s customers demand and Dave and his team worked closely with many departments at Camden including IT, Production, Maintenance and Management to ensure this aim was achieved.
As well as upgrading the door factory, Camden has also added a new factory to its manufacturing headquarters to create capacity for additional volume. The new machinery specified by Camden from Haffner for this new factory includes the fastest in line welders on the market of their type, specialist machining centres, ancillary cutting centres and high speed sash machining centres. The investment will ensure every window and door is made to the highest standard possible and delivers full automation and quality control checking for cutting, welding and bead processing.
Dave and his team at Haffner Murat pride themselves as being the only machinery company willing to listen to and adapt machinery to cater for customers’ needs, as this project demonstrates. In fact, bespoke machines for both aluminium and PVC-u fabricators can be designed and built within 12-16 weeks.
Camden offers a range of secure and sustainable PVC-u windows and doors for the domestic, social and commercial new build sectors. It has manufacturing facilities located across 40 acres, including onsite recycling and extrusion plants. It has been an innovator and market leader in PVC-u products for over 35 years. This latest innovation and investment in partnership with Haffner Murat demonstrates it is committed to retaining that status for some time to come.
