In what marks another major investment, one of the UK’s fastest growing fabricators has opened its third factory.
The TWR Group’s acquisition of its new 17,000-sq. ft. factory comes only one year after the company opened its 25,000-sq. ft. premises in Peterlee.
The latest factory - which is next door to its HQ in Peterlee - has been acquired by TWR to house production of its recently launched eternAL bi-fold door, a popular system aimed at helping installers capitalise on demand for premium aluminium systems.
The factory will also be used to house the production of the dual-colour production facility, which will be operational from January 2018.
eternAL offers superior aesthetics and excellent security, as well as market leading weather performance. The doors can be installed in domestic and commercial projects and are designed with installers in mind to help them complete jobs quickly and efficiently.
TWR is currently manufacturing around 85 bi-folding doors per week; and company founder and Managing Director Terry Richardson says the new factory will kick production into overdrive.
He comments: “The new factory represents another milestone in the group’s history and is a product of the success we are having as a company. It’s amazing to think that only a year ago we opened our second factory and now here we are with another major investment. We have big plans and anticipate more growth and investment in the coming months and years.”
The new factory follows the roll-out of several new products and investments over the past 12 months. Last year TWR brought Stratus Roofs and Warmcore to market.
The company also invested in a state-of-the-art colour facility – which enables customers to receive dual-coloured aluminium bi-folding doors record fast lead times.
When opened, the factory will become TWR’s third manufacturing site, joining the existing 25,000 sq. ft. factory in Peterlee and its longstanding and original factory in Sunderland, where TWR manufactures REHAU PVCu windows and doors, Stratus aluminium lantern roofs and Warmcore.
