In an industry in which it can sometimes feel that new firms set up every week and exit equally fast, companies need to differentiate to stay the course and be profitable. Birkenhead based sealed-unit and toughened safety glass manufacturer, K-Seal, differentiates itself with Edgetech’s Warm Edge Super Spacer® technology. Having invested over £250,000 in an Ashton sealed unit production line in 2003, K-Seal has since been awarded a BSEN1279-2:2002 with all its products now conforming to the latest quality accreditations.
K-Seal, now 10 years old, invested in excess of £750,000 in plant and equipment in 2004-5. “We plan even more investment in IT systems, an automatic glass-loading device and an upgrade for our Lisec IGU production line,” comments Steve Woolley, Commercial Director of K-Seal Glass. “Edgetech is one of our preferred suppliers. It provides an efficient despatch and delivery system and excellent support. With Edgetech’s support we hope to achieve our target of complete certification faster and look forward to the next decade. Ten years on and more investment is on the cards.”
