Investment at Fentrade supports continued growth

Aluminium fabricator Fentrade has recently invested in new manufacturing machinery to support its continued growth. Chris Reeks, Fentrade’s Director, said: “The new machinery enhances quality and production flow across the board. It also means we can cut a wider variety of shaped profiles, which will help support the growth we’re experiencing in shaped gable frames on residential extensions.”

The company has taken delivery of an Elumatec TS161/21 Table Saw, complete with roller conveyors. It has also added another bead station, which will support fabrication of the newly introduced Reynaers CP130 sliding patio range and the Jack Aluminium SD70 Heritage Door.

The investment in new machinery is being coupled with new staff to help handle the increased demand. Three new fabricators have been taken on in the factory and a part time support role has been created in the office.

Chris said: “Our success has been built on exceptional products backed up with attentive service on reliable turnaround times. These latest investments will enable us to continue to meet these demanding standards, even as we continue to grow.”

Fentrade is a young company but one that’s growing fast. This latest investment follows a doubling of manufacturing capacity last year, plus investment in state-of-the-art fenestration software.

The company is based in Newport, Wales, and works with trade and retail customers throughout Wales and the West and along the M4, M5 and M6 corridors. It partners with renowned industry brands such as AluK and VBH Greenteq and manufactures a full range of aluminium windows, doors, bifolds, inline sliders, GFT commercial screens, shopfronts and curtain walling products.

The product range is supported by a commitment to returning quotations within 24 hours, offering superb attention to detail and ensuring reliable on time, in full deliveries direct to its customers. As Fentrade’s investment shows, it’s an offer that’s proving increasingly popular.
