Heaving Hepworth Heaps Pile On Plant

Aluminium fabricator Hepworth Framework has been heaving with work which has inspired it to make a £multi-million investment in its manufacturing plant and showroom to capitalising on ever-growing demand.

This significant investment has had a positive impact on the company’s output and the product range now on offer.


 “At Hepworth, our business is selling bi-fold and patio doors and windows to our trader partners, installers and builders, for them to install into extensions, renovations and new-builds.”

Managing director, Hepworth Framework


Growth opportunity

“As consumers continue to build home offices and other multi-functional living spaces in 2023, aluminium is totally on-trend and represents an opportunity for growth,” says Steckles. “Aluminium delivers more natural light through the larger glazing areas with its stronger but slimmer sightlines, creating bright spaces that consumers want. Not only does aluminium offer design flexibility, it is also sustainable and durable.

“This is great news for anyone making, selling and installing aluminium windows and doors but to gain the most benefit, getting the supply right is critical. And for that, you need to work with a reliable, professional, expert aluminium partner.

“If you’re already selling aluminium doors, windows or curtain walling, you’ll be aware of the complexities and intricacies involved. But just because something can be more complex, it doesn’t mean you should avoid it. With the right partner, you can reap far higher rewards with better sales conversions and profit margins too.”



Steckles adds: “Three years ago we recognised that demand for aluminium was just going to keep on growing so we invested heavily in a new purpose-built manufacturing site. This means more machinery and people to increase capacity, and the introduction of the fantastically attractive Cortizo system, to run alongside Senior Architectural Systems which we have been manufacturing for over 30 years.

“We’re now looking for new customers who want to offer a choice of aluminium systems with the backup of a knowledgeable team.  We’re keen to open the world of aluminium and the benefits it can bring to home improvement door and window installers and retailers who are not yet involved.


Open day

“We are inviting installers to visit our manufacturing facility and new showroom on Thursday 27 April for a Yorkshire brew and to see just what goes into manufacturing aluminium doors and windows.”

If you’d like to attend the open day or arrange to come for a separate visit, mail Adam Gaskin adam.gaskin@hepworthframework.co.uk
