Leading specialist glass processors, TuffX, has invested in a new, fully automated vertical drilling machine with washer, which in January, was installed at the company’s modern manufacturing facility in Knowsley, Merseyside. The 50,000 sq ft factory already houses the latest technology for specialist glass production, however this new equipment will give greater accuracy and help to increase efficiency at the company.
Currently, senior management are focussing on the further development of both architectural and domestic sectors as the entire Ambience and TuffX brands continue to set standards for the industry.
The Schramal top drill machine, drills glass thickness from 4 – 19 mm and offers greater accuracy during the production process. This will ensure that TuffX maintains a competitive advantage in respect of output, product quality and service support.
This investment was instigated as sales have increased considerably throughout 2014 due to product diversification and customer demand.
Graham Price comments, “Our investment has already started to pay off with the new machinery helping us to achieve improved results, which sends out a clear message of strength and success to the industry.”
