Yorkshire trade and retail fabricator City Glass Works has recently invested in three new pieces of fabrication equipment from automation specialists Haffner Murat Ltd. Neal Magee, the City Glass Works’ Director, said: “We needed to invest to aid our expansion and we knew from reputation and experience that Haffner Murat would be the right supplier to choose.”
City Glass Works has invested in an SBA-2 Machining Centre, an SVK-2 Corner Transom Cleaner and an SMR4 Four Head Welder. It was a significant investment for the company, but one that will give the required results. Neal explains: “Our investment will improve finished product quality, speed up our lead times and help us save on wastage, all things that are part of our plans to expand our business in the next few years.”
With such a significant investment, it was important to find the right supplier. For Neal, though, there was only one choice. “Haffner Murat has shown it is one of the leading suppliers of machinery to the industry and has got a great reputation. I also know from personal experience that the reputation matches the reality. I’ve purchased machinery from Haffner in the past and it’s always delivered what was required.”
City Glass Works has been established for over 30 years and with a presence in Bradford, Halifax, Ilkley, Keighley and Leeds, it’s one of the leading glass and PVC-U product suppliers in the Yorkshire region. Neal comments: “Over the years we have always reinvested our profits on new machinery and training for our staff. By doing this we know we are always offering the highest quality products and service. Our approach has helped us to grow and with this latest investment we are well placed to continue our expansion.”
Haffner Murat and its Managing Director Dave Thomas are renowned for truly understanding the fabrication industry. The company offers free, impartial consultancy to help customers choose the right machine for them as well as finance packages and part exchanges to help them invest for the future of their business. And in City Glass Works it has another satisfied customer that is now equipped to move to the next stage of growth.
