Longstanding Epwin Window Systems fabricator Swainstons Ltd has signed a three-year supply agreement to manufacture the popular Stellar Aluminium Window and Door System. Swainstons’ move into aluminium fabrication signifies its commitment to providing high quality window and door products to its growing trade, domestic and commercial customers.
Liam McClorey, General Manager at Swainstons, said: “We have worked with Epwin Window Systems for many years and fabricate its Optima PVC-U Window and Door System, so we know first-hand the quality of their products and the business support available. Introducing Stellar to our portfolio will allow us to further extend our market reach as the appetite for aluminium products increases.”
The move into aluminium fabrication has seen the Stockton-on-Tees fabricator expand its operation by opening a second adjacent factory to provide the much-needed capacity to manufacture its Stellar products. Liam said: “The six-figure investment in the new dedicated Stellar fabrication plant will deliver exceptional efficiencies across the business and ensure we deliver a quick and reliable service for our aluminium products, enhancing our competitive edge in the market.”
Swainstons will manufacture a range of Stellar products including the Stellar Flush Window, Slimline Bifold Door, Tilt and Turn Window and the Stellar Slimline Sliding Door. Liam said: “We have already received interest for Stellar from the commercial sector, which underscores the market’s demand for high-quality aluminium windows and doors. As an Epwin Window Systems’ Approved Commercial Partner, we are confident Stellar will open up additional opportunities for us.”
Commenting on the new agreement, Katrina Earl, Sales Director at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Swainstons are an established and well-respected fabricator in the North East, renowned for delivering a superior quality product and pride themselves on working with innovative product partners. We are delighted they have chosen Stellar for their aluminium expansion and look forward to further developing this longstanding relationship.”
Stellar is the latest multi-award-winning addition to the Epwin Window Systems’ portfolio and was designed to deliver a step-change in aluminium system design. Its slimline flush aesthetics and high-quality system credentials have gained plaudits since the system was launched in 2019. And with experienced fabricators such as Swainstons adding the system to their portfolio, its market appeal has never been stronger.
