Polyframe – The Largest Fleet in The Industry?

When you fabricate in excess of 10 000 frames per week it is essential that you can guarantee that all the deliveries are covered.  Polyframe have recently invested in a range of new vehicles to keep up with the ever-growing delivery schedule as the business grows.

With four factories and a nationwide network of 14 trade centres the logistics of organizing nationwide deliveries on a 5 day lead time is a serious business.  As a result Polyframe have recently invested in excess of £500 000 in 6 new 18-ton trucks, 1 new 7.5-ton truck and 2 new 3.5-ton Luton vans.  This takes the total number of vehicles in the fleet, delivering throughout the UK and Ireland to over 30.

Chris Watson, Group Managing Director, commented, “The Polyframe fleet has grown beyond recognition over the past few years, from 5 or 6 vehicles five years ago to the staggering number we are at now.  As a business we cover the whole of the UK and Ireland so we need to ensure that we can meet all our customers delivery schedules, on the tightest of lead times.

The new vehicles will be based at Halifax, Norwich and the Composite Door factory in Mansfield and will ensure that efficiencies are introduced throughout the whole of the Polyframe Group.

In addition to this the vehicles are central to the Polyframe ‘Clearly Greener’ recycling scheme, with all vehicles bringing post consumer waste back to their depots.  The Polyframe Clearly Greener scheme has grown rapidly with approximately 65 tonnes of old PVCu frames being recycled every month.  This initiative saves all Polyframe customers money on skip hire, and more importantly ensures that old windows do not end up in landfill sites but are reground and recycled into PVCu products that do not require virgin PVC.

Polyframe have developed a strong marketing brand over the years and the new vehicle liveries mirror the striking brand image of all the advertising, brochures and marketing material created by the company.

As Polyframe continue to grow the investment in new vehicles ‘future proofs’ the business and enables new customers to be seamlessly added to existing distribution routes with no disruption to existing customers.
