One of the UK’s foremost aluminium systems houses, Kaye Building Systems (KBS), has rebranded to become Exlabesa.
Derek Hodgson, the company’s General Manager, says there were three simple reasons behind the decision to rebrand. “We’ve always extruded Exlabesa profiles because we recognise their market leading credentials. By rebranding ourselves as Exlabesa we can build on what’s great about what we already do and take it to the next level using the power of the Exlabesa brand.”
As Derek says, by rebranding as Exlabesa, the company will be able to benefit from the brand reach that an international company has to offer. Exlabesa is the largest privately owned aluminium extrusion company in Europe. It was incorporated in 1966 and now operates in 40 countries on three continents.
But despite the name change, very little else will change at Exlabesa. Derek explains: “The company has grown year on year since it was founded in 2011 and we’ve developed a strong reputation for being the best at what we do and offering an exceptional package of benefits that add value to every fabricator. We will still offer a comprehensive product range and customers will still benefit from our in-house anodising plant and in-house powder coating plant as well as incredible technical support.”
Exlabesa extrudes aluminium profiles and facades for domestic and commercial applications. The product range includes the KWS51 casement window, the KWS75 casement window, rebated thermal doors, tilt turn windows, bi-folding doors, patio doors, thermal and non-thermal shop fronts and curtain walling. All products are extruded in the company’s state of the art Doncaster headquarters and can be anodised and painted in house too. All products are supplied ex stock from the warehouse for rapid delivery times.
In short, Exlabesa offers everything an aluminium fabricator needs. With the rebrand, it seems likely that the best-kept secret in aluminium fabrication will be a secret no longer.
