Going Gets Tuffx Expanding

Tuffx' expanded factory

Specialist safety glass manufacturer, TuffX, has expanded its factory in order to ramp-up production of its increasingly popular Infinity rooflights and walk-on glass units.

The move, which has seen TuffX take possession of an adjoining unit to its existing Merseyside premises and recruit additional staff, comes hot on the heels of last year’s factory expansion to accommodate its third, state-of-the-art Glaston glass tempering furnace.

Tuffx' footprint is now up by 10,000sq.ft to 80,000sqft,


 “Our Infinity range of walk-on glass units are thermally insulated to meet the required standards and tested to withstand forces up to 4kn/m2. We believe they are the only structurally-sound walk-on units on the market to currently meet these standards.”

Managing director, TuffX


Out of the box

"And as a result," continues Price, "demand has been steadily increasing. Our latest factory expansion was necessary to accommodate this, along with the growing popularity of our Infinity All Glass rooflight, which was launched in December last year.”

The factory expansion will allow extra space for the in-house manufacture of Infinity range components, as well as assembly of the complete units to ensure smooth and swift installation out of the box.

Price adds: “This extra space to manufacture our components in-house will also mean that some of the component supply issues currently affecting the industry will not have an impact on our orders, which is another win for TuffX customers.”
