Trade fabricator Modplan has set up a dedicated factory at its Newport headquarters to the sole manufacture of its Flush Sash windows. The move allows Modplan to further improve its manufacturing efficiencies for this popular product range. Heidi Sachs, Managing Director of Modplan, said: “The popularity of our Flush Sash windows continues to grow. As such, we felt we needed a dedicated Flush Sash factory to support the demand and ensure we further improve our manufacturing efficiencies too.”
Modplan’s multi-site fabrication facility has a combined manufacturing space of 145,000 sqft. Heidi said: “Our focus is always to give customers what they need. The popularity of the high-value Flush Sash window has been further driven by consumers exploring the best products for their homes with feature-rich products becoming the default choice of many.”
Modplan manufactures the HALO Flush Sash window in a choice of welded and mechanical transom options. The versatile windows sit flush within its frame, making it a popular choice for heritage and conservation projects too. The windows are manufactured to meet precise project requirements. They are fitted with Yale hardware incorporating night vent function dual cams as standard with the option to upgrade to Yale Lifetime Security with hinge protector. There is also an enhanced option which upgrades the window to Secured by Design Certification by using security glazing clips and 6.8mm laminated glass.
The dedicated Flush Sash factory is the latest in a series of significant business investments which has also seen Modplan purchase an eye-watering twelve new machines from Avantek which are being utilised throughout the various fabrication plants. Heidi said: “We continue our focus on delivering the best in manufacturing efficiencies at every level. Everything we do is customer focussed and that includes our internal Control Hub which gives us real-time information on the status of every order throughout all our manufuting sites, to the speed and quality of our fabrication. We set high-level KPI’s throughout the business which continue to get monitored. Overall, it allows us to deliver a better customer experience.”
