Haffner Chosen To Support Abcell Growth Strategy

by | Sep 13, 2021 | Machinery

Trade fabricator Abcell recently expanded into PVC-U fabrication as part of an ambitious growth strategy. It chose Haffner for the machinery it needed to support its plans and secure success.

Neville Gleed, director of Abcell, said: “We decided to move into PVC-U fabrication as it made good business sense. We needed the best in PVC-U automation technology so we could deliver the exceptional quality we have built our name on. Haffner was the answer.”

The Abcell team discussed their plans with Matt Thomas, regional sales manager at Haffner, who recommended the SBA-4 PVC-U Profile Machining Centre as the machine that would best support their ambitions.

Haffner describe the SBA-4 Machining Centre as ‘the perfect combination of cutting-edge automated technology and high-quality output for PVC-U profiles’. The company also says the heavy-duty design, top quality parts and Beckhoff control system gives years of trouble-free bar processing and superb product accuracy. And that it gives fabricators the flexibility they need because it’s easily programmed and adjusted to suit any range of window styles.

The Haffner team was able to deliver the machine to Abcell within six weeks from order placement and it’s now helping the company to meet and exceed customer requirements as it moves into PVC-U fabrication. Neville commented: “We were pleased with the efficiency of the Haffner team and delighted to be able to get up and running with the new machine so quickly.”

Abcell has been an established fabricator for over 30 years and manufactures and supplies a range of specialist products including Guardian Warm Roofs, Warmcore bifolding doors, Stratus Lantern Roofs, Ultraframe roofs and Aluk products direct to the trade. It operates from a 100,000 sq ft three-unit manufacturing facility in Birmingham.

Haffner says it has the largest and most comprehensive PVC-U and aluminium fabrication machinery portfolio in the industry. It has an exclusive supply partnership with Italian-machine innovators, Graf Synergy, known for its seamless welding technology and patented welding techniques. Haffner is also the sole UK agent of Haffner Machinery and it also supplies a range of aluminium fabrication machines from worldwide machine-giants, Fom Industries.
