Hurst Plastics reliance with leading industry spacer bar supplier, improves customer offering

Composite and PVC-u panel door manufacturer, Hurst Plastics is pleased to announce the appointment of new supplier Edgetech UK. The recent relationship, endorses further Hurst Plastics commitment to seek and develop, continuous product improvements for their customers.

Hurst Plastics approached Edgetech UK, manufacturer of the unique foam-based spacer bar Super SpacerTM, to work together with their operations team. They had been experiencing an increase in demand for variations in their composite door glass designs and wanted to ensure they were able to offer their customers the choice and not compromise the overall performance of the doorsets.

Darren Glew, Director of Operations for Hurst Plastics explains “With the introduction of the BRFC’s ‘Door Energy Rating Scheme’, the focus has been on increasing the performance of all our manufactured door styles and designs to enable our customers to met the DER scheme requirements, whilst still offer their customer’s a choice.

“Hurst Plastics has seen a healthy growth in sales over this period, contributed mainly to the increase in demand for composite doors. To help support the increased demand, we knew there was a need to improve productivity in areas of our glass unit manufacturing.

“We selected Edgetech UK, after recognising they not only produce one of the leading, flexible spacer bar products on the market, but their vast knowledge on the subject of manufacturing sealed glass units, would benefit our manufacturing process immensely to help us achieve the performance and efficiency results we need”. Darren commented.

Together, the two companies worked on several projects to improve the productivity for Hurst Plastics glass sealed units, including; the implementation of new machinery to apply ‘Super SpacerTm’ and producing a manufacturing solution to enable Hurst to include their Georgian bar style glass units into the glass design options, which they were previously unable to offer.

“As one of the industry leaders, producing PVC-u panels and composite doorset, input from our suppliers is invaluable to the success of our products. Edgetech UK has a similar likeminded attitude to us; continuously looking at methods, solutions and components which help produce products our customers will be satisfied with”. Darren concludes.

Andy Jones, Managing Director of Edgetech UK adds, “This is a great opportunity for both companies, we pride ourselves on being a forward thinking business, aiming to achieve results for our customers. It is clear working with Hurst Plastics and their management team; they too, regard the continuous development of their core products to be a good investment in benefiting their customers.
