The Sash Window Workshop is proud to announce that, due to the continued success of the business, they have now opened a second large, purpose designed workshop in Bracknell, Berkshire.
The new workshop, which is located next door to their existing purpose-built workshop, will allow The Sash Window Workshop to expand their manufacturing capabilities, helping them to meet growing demand for their traditional timber windows and doors.
As part of the expansion, the company have also implemented a new streamlined painting process, using a CEFLA paint line. After reviewing different specialist technologies and running successful trials at the CEFLA Lab, The Sash Window Workshop decided to place an order for the new paint line.
The new paint line will help increase the quantity of windows and doors that can be painted at any time without having to substitute quality of the painting.
To help the joinery production keep up with their new efficient paint line, The Sash Window Workshop have also installed a second Homag CNC machine this month, which accurately cuts the timber to make their windows and doors.
Established over 27 years ago, in February 1994, The Sash Window Workshop began as a small family business operating from a converted pig shed in Ascot, Berkshire. Today the company is still independently run but has a turnover of around £7 million a year. The company now employ over 60 employees working in their workshop, office and installing windows and doors in customers’ homes across London and Southern England.
Due to the growing demand for their windows and doors, The Sash Window Workshop also offer a supply only service for new joinery nationwide allowing everyone to benefit from their thermally efficient, traditional timber windows and doors.
In light of increasing demand within the home improvements industry, The Sash Window Workshop decided to take advantage of Government funding and invest in growing their manufacturing facilities.
Richard Dollar, Managing Director at The Sash Window Workshop, explains:
“Having started from nothing with a hand to mouth existence in 1994, we are very proud of the success of our business. This success has enabled us to make a £1 million plus investment this year into new premises, plant and equipment.
We have always made our own windows and doors in the UK, allowing us to closely manage the quality of our products. Also, most importantly it provides job opportunities locally.
Roughly half our orders every year come from recommendations and existing customers. We believe future success depends on continuing to provide outstanding products alongside excellent customer service and making sure that every day we try to do things even better.”
The high quality product and service provided by The Sash Window Workshop is also highlighted in their Which? Trusted Trader status, with the company celebrating 7 years of being a Which? Trusted Trader last month.
