Investment for 2018 Prefix colour programme

Prefix Systems have just made a significant investment in a new state of the art colouring facility, which includes a mix on demand paint system, at their head office in Blackburn and it will form part of their sales strategy for 2018 and beyond.

While much of the window and door industry have been talking colour for the last 18 months, Prefix are now supporting this with a facility to manufacture conservatory and lantern roofs, along with Verandah glazing bars and end caps in literally hundreds of different RAL colours. Heritage colours, urban influences and even one-off projects can now be embraced by the company, with stocks of black and anthracite grey being held across several product ranges.

For conservatories and glazed extensions, Prefix can colour any extrusion, injection moulding, or vac formed product. Greater quality control, consistency of supply and new sales opportunities have been the rationale for this important investment.

It’s also very much a project inspired by customer demand as co-director Chris Cooke points out: ‘Colour is one of the biggest talking points in the glazing and fenestration sectors. The days of just a few woodgrains and colours are now long gone and we are now able to produce fully manufactured products in a vast array of colours and with a 10-year finish guarantee.

He continued: ‘Our new colouring facility will provide customers with consistent supply, quality finish and with a quick turnaround from all four branches. We have a reputation for customer excellence and so this latest investment will again be testament to our commitment to service.’

Prefix Systems (UK)

Prefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent fabricator of conservatory roofs with a history that dates back to 1996. Run by Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, the leading Ultraframe fabricator operates from a head office in Clayton-Le-Moors, Lancashire and from two further manufacturing sites in Northamptonshire and Swansea.

Prefix is the only conservatory fabricator in the UK with a number of regional fabrication facilities which provides the necessary expertise for the local market and the added support that goes with it. Prefix was arguably the first fabricator in the UK to provide a wide range of laminated colours which now extends to 10, along with a unique cast iron effect for gutters.

The company also has considerable expertise in portal frames and in the retro-fit market. There is an estimated replacement market of 3million conservatories and with their Retro-fix and Multibeam products developed with Window Widgets, Prefix is set to take a lead in addressing this important market sector.
