Garnalex Flies The Flag For British Manufacturing With ‘Made In Britain’ Accreditation
Garnalex, the company set to revolutionise aluminium windows and doors with its innovative Sheerline system, has been awarded the ‘Made in Britain’ mark of provenance.
Made in Britain is an organisation that recognises excellence in manufacturing and promotes British-made products across all sectors. It brings together the best manufacturers in the UK under the collective Made in Britain logos. The organisation gives businesses and consumers confidence and clarity that they are buying British.
Commenting on the accreditation, Garnalex CEO Roger Hartshorn says: “Currently 190,000 tons of extruded aluminium is consumed in the UK, but only 110,000 tons is made in the UK. We plan to make a big dent in those import statistics! The raw aluminium comes from Wales, so this really is your chance to reduce Britain’s carbon footprint and buy British. We’ve spent over £9m on Garnalex’ state-of-the-art aluminium extrusion facility and we’ve integrated manufacturing, logistics and SAP with our in-house GarnerSys software for improved efficiency and outstanding product quality.
“Garnalex is proud to invest in British manufacturing – our new Sheerline aluminium window and door system is designed in Britain and made in Britain. We are one of only a few aluminium companies to extrude in Britain and supply both trade extrusions to other companies and our own Sheerline window and door systems to fabricators. This investment gives us full control of the supply chain, enabling us to offer shorter lead times and first-class service.”
