Glazerite grows again with dedicated 'Specials' factory
The Glazerite UK Group has completed the latest phase of its ambitious expansion programme with a major step-up to a 30,000 sq ft Special Products plant, with plans already underway for the next phase. The company's aclaimed Vertical Sliders, Residence Collection products and the VEKA Imagine bi-fold, patio and flush doors will all be made in the purpose-equipped factory by a specially-trained fabrication team with its own dedicated management and Quality Control systems.  The new unit, close to Glazerite's Wellingborough HQ, is more than twice the size off its original Specials factory opened in 2014 and gives further capacity for the group's ever-growing range of niche, premium and specialist windows and doors.  "These are all specialist products," said Group Director Jason Thompson, "So they deserve specialist attention, both in the technology of the manufacturing processes and in the skills of the people involved at all levels. The fact that we have outgrown the original Specials factory in less than three years shows how not only the range but also the volume of demand for these products has grown in that short time. By adding this very spacious new factory, we are not only showing our commitment to the future growth of these products but also adding ample capacity to give the same attention to whatever future trensds have yet to emerge." The launch of the new unit also gives Glazerite a fourth specific production centre, along with Halo fabrication at Glazerite East, the former City Beads factory in Peterborough acquired by the Group last year, and its mainsteam VEKA production at Wellingborough and Bolton. Jason explained the philosophy behind the move:  "We offer one of the most comprehensive product ranges available anywhere but our customers deserve more than just a Jack-of-all-trades. On the other hand, some specialist fabricators have a very limited product offering. Now, with the three seperate centres, each with its own dedicated skills and production lines, we can offer three distinct centres of expertise all from a single buying point." The second phase of development at the Wellingborough site, which will include a showroom and training facility as well as a trade counter to serve its local customer base, is due to be completed early in 2018. The Glazerite UK Group is VEKA's largest trade fabricator in the UK and a long-standing Network VEKA member. It offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants, Peterborough and Greater Manchester as well as its South West distribution hub in Bristol serving South Wales and The West of England.

PVC-U and Aluminium work together for special school colour-coding
When the specification for a new-build special school called for a colour coding of windows with unusual bespoke reveals and cills, the solution came in a combination of PVC-U windows set in made-to-order aluminium surrounds. Birkenhead-based K2 Aluminium Systems Ltd, despite its name, is also an established PVC-U installer, so was ideally placed to come up with the solution based on pressed aluminium cills and exterior reveals around VEKA frames from the Glazerite UK Group. Palmerston School, Liverpool, is a special school for pupils aged 11 to 19 with multiple learning difficulties, and is now housed in the new-built premises replacing an original building nearby. The windows are colour coded in red, blue, yellow and green to help pupils to navigate around the school and to identify different areas. The work, for main contractor Kier Construction, entailed 55 windows, each with four top-openers, in RAL 7012 Basalt Grey foil of white. The aluminium elements were pressed and powder coated to order for K2 and also included an upright panel between each frame and cill to allow additional ventilation space beneath the lower openers. Also in the contract were five glazed doors fabricated in Schueco aluminium. The bespoke elements required careful planning and drawing, as K2 commercial manager Liam Bird explained: “It was quite an unusual specification but one where our background in both PVC-U and aluminium paid dividends. Working with Glazerite on the PVC-U fabrication and with our own experience of aluminium, we were able to complete the work to specification and without problems and the result speaks for itself.” The Glazerite UK Group is VEKA’s largest trade fabricator in the UK and a long-standing member of the Independent Network and its predecessor Network VEKA. It offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants, Peterborough and Greater Manchester as well as its South West distribution hub in Bristol serving South Wales and The West of England.

We are especially pleased to be up for Fabricator of the Year as it gives all of our staff some well-deserved recognition for their hard work which has helped put us in the running. “Melanie Jacobs was nominated as our unsung hero as she has been the driving force behind the success of our customer services department at our head office in Wellingborough since becoming Sales Office manager in 2010. Her passion, drive and propensity to go above and beyond allow Melanie to effectively lead her team year on year. All of which she does whilst managing the symptoms of rare auto-immune condition Myasthenia Gravismake. She sets a fantastic example to all of us.” Jason concluded: “It will be interesting to see what happens on awards night as there is some strong competition.
