Why Quality Manufacturing Matters More Than Ever

In today’s competitive landscape, where speed and cost often dominate decision-making,  hardware supplier AT Precision stands firm in its belief that precision manufacturing is the cornerstone of long-term success. 

While some manufacturers prioritise short-term gains, at AT Precision, we understand the true value of precision-crafted components, something which has set us apart in years gone by. 

It’s also a commitment to long-term reduced costs, enhanced safety and reliability, improved sustainability, and customer satisfaction that has seen us forge ahead.

AT Precision manufacture the Everglide range of bi-fold hardware and aluminium profile, as well as the Everseal range of high-quality gaskets. 

These products are meticulously manufactured and built to last, and because they’re made in-house, come at a more affordable price, ultimately saving our customers money down the line. 

But a lower price doesn’t mean a compromise on quality – we prioritise building parts that are not just functional, but exceptional, with our rigorous quality control processes ensuring minimal defects and extended product lifespans, saving our customers significant resources in the long run. 

At AT Precision, we recognise that that quality doesn’t come at the expense of the environment, and we therefore prioritise using recycled materials and minimising waste throughout our manufacturing processes. 

This commitment to sustainable practices is further exemplified through our new in-house recycling plant, where our new Recycled Thermal Reinforcement (RTR) bars are manufactured. 

Made from 100% recycled uPVC, the RTR bars add strength and increased thermal performance to windows, are quick and easy to install, and boast a minimum lifespan of 35 years.

At AT Precision, our dedication to customer satisfaction goes beyond just the quality of our products.  We believe in building strong relationships with our customers, and that means providing exceptional service throughout the entire buying process. 

Our team is available to answer questions and offer expert advice, no matter how complex the project.  We also travel directly to customers throughout the UK to provide on-site product support and training, ensuring they get the most out of our hardware. 

This commitment to comprehensive service ensures our customers not only receive high-performing products, but that they also have the knowledge and support to use them effectively.
