At the double
QUICKSLIDE is rolling out double shift patterns to aluminium and PVC-U casement facilities after first trialling the initiative earlier this year in response to demand for its heritage-styled vertical sliders.
Sales & Marketing Director Tom Swallow said: “With a double shift pattern operating in our vertical slider facility, we were able to offer a low cost three-day express lead time on a selection of our VS products even during our busy summer months. This not only allowed us to sustain a competitive advantage but also means that we are now well prepared for periods of high-volume output later in the year as well.
“By extending the option of double shifts to our other factories, we are now also very well positioned to respond to the demand for our aluminium offering, which has been bolstered by the ongoing upturn in popularity for aluminium products.
Furthermore, should the need arise, we can now significantly increase the output of our new range of Deceuninck PVC-U products that were introduced earlier this year including the 2800 Storm Sash casement windows and doors, Slider 24+ sliding patio doors and G-Award winning Heritage flush sash windows and doors.”
