PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS Second factory boosts production » » POLYFRAME HAS launched into its second major investment programme since becoming part of the Customade Group - this time to expand its 50,000-square foot site in Livingston and boost production of PVCu frames by more than 30 per cent. Polyframe Livingston has made a £750,000 investment into plant and new machinery to help it satisfy growing market demand and increase production on the site from 1,500 to 2,000 frames a week on a single shift basis. Polyframe Livingston is Scotland’s largest trade fabricator and the biggest fabricator of Veka PVCu frames north of the border. The move at Livingston swiftly follows the announcement by Polyframe that it had embarked on an ambitious investment into additional production space and new machinery at its Norwich site. Output at Norwich will increase substantially from 4,500 frames a week to 7,000 frames a week. 115 people are currently employed on the Livingston site, with 75 staff working in the factory. The enhanced Livingston site will manufacture the complete range of VEKA PVCu windows and doors. Every product fabricated at the Livingston site is fully traceable from the moment manufacture begins until delivery of the finished product to the customer.
