More Doors

Door manufacturer, UK Doors Online, has just invested in new machinery from Haffner to support its business growth plans.

The new machinery includes a FMC 120 CNC machining centre, the company’s second investment in a FOM Industrie machining centre from Haffner. Additionally, the company has purchased a new TT 415 double mitre saw, while fellow group business Trade Window Centre, has invested in a new TT 405 double mitre saw.


Adding value

Andrew Glover, managing director at UK Doors Online, says: “We know from experience that machines from Haffner deliver the quality of output that our customers have come to expect. We also appreciate the reliability and service support we get from the Haffner team which adds value to our business.”

Together, the machines will give both UK Doors Online and Trade Window Centre the quality and capacity they need to meet growing demand for their products, which include aluminium bi-fold, lift-and-slide, sliding patio doors and aluminium windows.

Glover says: “Despite tough trading conditions, UK Doors Online has achieved year-on-year growth of 8% and 16% in the past two years. We couldn’t have kept pace with demand without the skill and commitment of our team – or the quality and efficiency of the machines we’ve purchased from Haffner. Our latest machine investment will help us continue to capitalise on our growing presence in the market.”


Bespoke solutions

Matthew Thomas, managing director at Haffner, is confident that the new machinery will give both UK Doors Online and the Trade Window Centre the solutions they need to continue their growth trajectory. He says: “We always take time to understand every customer’s plans and requirements so we can recommend the machines that will best suit their needs. This approach ensures that our customers receive tailored solutions that align with their business objectives and facilitate their ongoing success.”

The FOM Industrie FMC 120 CNC machining centre has been designed to carry out drilling and milling operations on aluminium and steel profiles. Features include three independently controlled axes and a worktable with pneumatic positioning at 0°, 90° and 180°. At the same time, the machining head allows machining on three sides of the profile and on the two ends with the aid of milling disks and blades.  Both the TT 405 and TT 415 double mitre saws streamline profile cutting, making the process more efficient.

Glover says: “The addition of the new machinery package and the continued support of the Haffner team seems certain to ensure our continued success.”
