Roseview Windows, the UK’s leading vertical slider manufacturer, has just taken delivery of a second SBA-4 VS PVC-U Profile Machining Centre from Haffner.
Mike Bygrave, Sales & Marketing Director at Roseview Windows, commented: “Roseview has witnessed a sharp upturn in demand in the past 18 months as a result of the continued popularity of feature-rich sash windows. Our investment in this new machine will give us a big increase in capacity and further support our continued strategy for growth.”
The second machine arrives on the shop floor just 12 months after the business took receipt of their first Haffner VS machining centre. Mike commented: “We invested in our first SBA-4 VS machining centre to replace an ageing machine and upgrade efficiencies across the shop floor. It made such a huge difference to our fabrication capabilities we had no hesitation in ordering a second machine to support our business growth trajectory and maintain our quality sash window output.”
The Roseview team had no hesitation in working with Haffner again either. Mike said: “We have a trusted partnership with Haffner based on cooperation and support. There was no reason to go anywhere else.”
The SBA-4 VS PVC-U Profile Machining Centre is driven by technical innovation and high-performance accuracy, which makes it ideal for manufacturing both standard and mechanically jointed vertical sliders. For a company such as Roseview, which is renowned for the quality of its product and the efficiency of its operations, it is the perfect choice.
Like all Roseview’s fabrication machines, the new SBA-4 VS PVC-U Profile Machining Centre has been given a name to make it easy to identify in production meetings. Mike commented: “We name all our machines after Nintendo characters. The first machine we purchased from Haffner is called Bowser. This new one is Yoshi. We also have a Mario, Luigi and Super Mario.”
Serving the trade market, Roseview Windows was established in 1977 and has grown year-on-year. In 1985 it was the first company in the UK to specialise in manufacturing PVC-U vertical sliders. Based in Buckinghamshire, the company currently manufactures around 700 windows a week, with plans in place to increase output to 1,000 windows per week. With the arrival of Yoshi, or its second SBA-4 VS PVC-U Profile Machining Centre, it is well equipped to achieve this.
