DOORS&WINDOWS New Premises Boosts Growth Leading Essex based trade fabricator, Iceni Windows, is poised for further expansion with a move to new, larger premises in Witham. The REHAU fabricator, which already produces around 450 frames per week in the REHAU TOTAL70 system, now has a 12,000 sq ft production area and a significantly extended office area for its administrative staff. The Company has relocated from nearby Colchester to Witham and is now situated directly adjacent to the A12, nearer to major distribution routes and in a more convenient and accessible location to improve its service to customers. The additional space is allowing Iceni to store all of its raw materials and finished products in optimum conditions inside, for the first time. Paul Foyle, Managing Director of Iceni Windows, says: “The new premises are a key element in our planned expansion. The location on Freebournes Industrial Estate in Witham means we no longer have restrictions on the times we can operate so we can add additional production shifts and load vehicles on separate shifts. We also now have space to accommodate additional staff in our sales and order processing departments, which is essential as we increase our output in REHAU TOTAL70.” Call Iceni Windows on 01376 519279 or email tinab@iceniwindows.co.uk KEEPING UP THE PRESSURE! Nico Manufacturing, leading manufacturer of window products, has launched a Sash Compressor for larger top hung u-PVC windows with a euro-groove profile. Designed to complement the Nico range of Friction Hinges, the Sash Compressor can be easily fitted to many window systems, providing additional compression to the sides of the window to prevent distortion and optimise performance. Available in two heights (13mm and 17mm) with a common catch assembly that fits into the euro-groove, the Nico Sash Compressor is a low cost alternative to wrap around gear. It also has the added advantage of still allowing the sash to be locked in the night vent position. The Sash Compressor is pressure die-cast, finished with Supercoat 500 – Nico’s highly corrosion-resistant coating – and, like the rest of the Nico Window Products range, designed and built in the UK.
