Edgetech is delighted to welcome on board Warm Edge Units, headed up by familiar glass industry name Mike Whitlam. The forward thinking manufacturer has recently invested several million pounds to stay ahead of anticipated market demand for superior performance energy efficient sealed units. This technically advanced company will offer window companies cost effective warm edge technology sealed units - enabling fabricators and installers to offer competitive energy rated windows.
Mike Whitlam Managing Director of Warm Edge Units comments: “As a team we’ve been operating for many years as Gilt Edge Glass which gives us a lot of experience and credibility on which to build. We attribute much of our success to researching the market, identifying market trends and then investing in people, technology and product innovation to stay ahead of the curve. It’s this philosophy which has underpinned our decision to invest in a purpose built 35,000 sq foot manufacturing facility to house a fully automated Super Spacer® application line from FORel dedicated to the production of warm edge technology units.
“The factory will officially go live in April running at a rate of about 5000 units per week. Demand indicates that this volume will double by the end of 2007 and continue to grow in 2008. WERs are already proving their importance in encouraging home owners to replace replacement windows, a market driver we want our trade customers to benefit from.”
