Since launching its own brand range of machinery earlier this year, all designed to make targeted aspects of joinery production quicker, easier and more efficient, Mighton Products has welcomed a growing number of positive reviews, with the latest coming from Glasgow based sash window specialists Conservation Windows.
Experts in the restoration and installation of sash windows in period properties, the family run firm recently purchased the Mighton Scribe-It™ machine, one of the most popular products in the range, and was quick to praise its precision and speed.
“We have regularly been buying sash window components, such as sash cords, seals and ironmongery, from Mighton for the last decade,” said Director Archie MacLean, “so we had no hesitation in looking to them for our machinery needs. We took full advantage of the Mighton Mobile Demonstration Vehicle service and booked a visit with Dale Cook, giving us a chance to ‘try before you buy’ and ask him any questions we had before going ahead with the purchase.”
He continued: “We have had the machine in our workshop for around a month now and there has been a notable impact on our output in terms of both speed and quality of finish. The machine itself is compact, straightforward to set up and very easy to use. It’s a good value product and there is nothing about it I would change.”
Mighton Chairman Mike Derham said: “The goal when we first started developing our machines was to help us partner with numerous highly skilled joinery firms, such as Conservation Windows, and help them make targeted changes to their manufacturing process that help reduce labour and increase speed.
“The manufacture of authentic timber windows and doors is an artform where it is necessary for much of the process to be done by hand, but by introducing machines to complete the bottleneck stages of this process the overall operation can be far more efficient and cost effective.”
Conservation Windows are a small family based company, established in Glasgow in 1998. The team have a combined two decades of experience in the manufacture, restoration and installation of traditional timber sash windows and pride themselves on delivering a personal and high quality service to their customers.
