Wes Bill Darwen Windows Million Magnum

Padiham Glass’ Millionth IGU Installed In A VEKA System By Long-Standing Customer, Darwen Windows

A leading Lancashire-based fabricator of VEKA PVC-U glazing systems has installed the millionth insulating glass unit (IGU) to come off the automated SuperSpacer production line at Padiham Glass Ltd.

VEKA Approved Fabricator, Darwen Windows was the lucky recipient of the milestone IGU, with MD Bill Ainsworth collecting a complimentary magnum of champagne as part of the celebration!

“Besides the bubbly,” Bill commented, “I’m very happy that Darwen Windows had the honour of installing this landmark IGU from Padiham Glass. We’ve always enjoyed working with the team there, and their products are invariably of a great quality and competitively priced. Pair that with the industry-leading PVC-U systems we’re supplied by The VEKA UK Group and you have the basis of a package that has brought us decades of success.”

Anthony Clarkson, MD at Padiham Glass explains that, in fact, the IGU in question was the millionth unit to be produced by just one of the company’s three production lines: “A visiting analyst pointed out that our automated Edgetech SuperSpacer line was close to producing its millionth unit and, understandably, there was quite a buzz on the shop floor as we waited to see whose order it would fall on!

“It seemed fitting that Darwen Windows was the client as they are one of our longest-standing customers, having worked with us for around 25 years. It also prompted us to estimate how many IGUs we had produced in total, taking all three production lines into account. The conservative figure we arrived at was around the 5.5 million mark!”

Coming just a month into Padiham Glass’ 35th anniversary year, its millionth IGU has been installed as part of Darwen Windows’ contract at West End School in nearby Oswaldtwistle.

Bill continues: “The past year has been an exciting one for us, undergoing a major rebranding and launching a new website and social media presence to get the Darwen Windows brand ‘out there’ and recognised as a symbol of quality. We’ve taken on two extra staff and hope to continue our growth throughout 2015.

“We value the continued support of our suppliers such as The VEKA UK Group and Padiham Glass and are proud to install this notable IGU as part of a VEKA system, where it will be relied upon by West End School’s pupils and staff for years to come. Here’s hoping the two-millionth IGU is produced for our order too!”

Padiham Glass has recently achieved Approved Supplier status – part of The VEKA UK Group’s Approved Installer Scheme – for its trade counter. There, Approved Installers can source complete, CE-marked VEKA frames, fabricated using Padiham Glass IGUs.
