Extension designed with a ‘view’ on Supercut 6

After becoming the first PVCu window fabricator to take delivery of a Supercut 5 machining and cutting centre in 2014, Rooms and Views in Buckley has taken an unprecedented step in the expansion of its premises… by designing and building an extension specifically to house a brand new Supercut 6!

Kevin McClure, Managing Director explains:

“We’ve been delighted with the Supercut 5 – it has significantly improved productivity and efficiency through the factory since we installed it last year.

“Our ideal choice of machine would have been the Supercut 6, with its greater capacity for machining and cutting having a Liniar-BiFold-MyTradeTV-330x150
separate routing portal, 3-blade sawing centre and buffer station which gives it the ability to simultaneously process two bar lengths at once, but we didn’t have the space needed for the larger machine.

“So we decided to increase the size of the factory, which gave us the opportunity to design and build an extension around the machine we originally wanted.

“Our architect actually drew the Supercut 6 into the planning application for the extension, and the layout including the positioning of 3 phase isolators, airline ports, sectional doors for profile loading and offcut waste disposal were all part of the scheme to give us the optimum efficiency once the machine was in place.

“The experts at Wegoma (now Avantek) were on hand to give timely and detailed advice during the exhaustive design process, and also arranged a ‘part-exchange’ deal on the Supercut 5 so we could upgrade in the most cost effective way.

“The extension took six months to build, with the new machine delivered and installed in September 2015 once the building was ready. The Supercut 5 was still in use whilst the 6 was being commissioned, meaning minimal disruption to our operations.”

In addition to the Supercut 6, Rooms and Views purchased new Wegoma 5-head and 4 head welders, Urban SV 530 and SV 405 corner cleaning machines.  The new machinery has enabled the two-shift operation to double its capacity of cutting, preparation and welding – creating five new jobs in the process to manage new logistic premises and alterations to quality control procedures. Sales order personnel have also been recruited to this growing company.

The efficiencies brought by the new machinery have also enabled Rooms and Views to supply local, smaller fabricators with high quality, cost effective windows and doors, many of whom couldn’t make them for the same price themselves.

The business is now the largest manufacturer of PVCu windows in North Wales and the largest Liniar fabricator in all of Wales, serving national house builders throughout the UK and trade customers along the A55 corridor. Despite the firm’s continued growth, the team at Rooms and Views manages to retain the personal touch, with quality and customer service at the heart of its operations.

The expansion has also seen the launch of Rooms and Views new trade arm, Europlas, with its first trade counter and showroom opening on the Catheralls Industrial Estate in Buckley. The outlet has already proved a huge success with local installers as they can collect their windows and pick up fascias, soffits and other installation products at the same time.

Kevin concludes: “The extension and new machinery were essential to achieve the desired growth to date, with the Wegoma team providing immediate service and tremendous support. It’s a really exciting time at Rooms and Views and further development is firmly in our sights so watch this space!”
