Leading machinery innovator Haffner Ltd is celebrating its longstanding partnership with Sterling PVCu Ltd, one of the North West’s largest fabricators. Spanning over two decades, this relationship underscores Haffner’s commitment to continually supporting Sterling PVCu’s ongoing investment in machine technology to enhance its production capabilities.

Matt Thomas, Managing Director at Haffner, commented: “Partnering with Sterling PVCu for over 20 years is a testament to our shared commitment to innovation and fabrication excellence. We are proud to continue supporting Sterling PVCu, ensuring they remain at the forefront of high-end manufacturing output.”

During its extensive partnership, Sterling PVCu has purchased over 25 machines from Haffner, indicating the strength of the supply relationship. This investment includes the first SBA machining centre, commissioned in 2002, which was followed by additional SBA machining centres, welders, corner cleaners, double mitre saws and routers.

Recently, Sterling PVCu completed a significant investment programme, further solidifying its reputation for quality and reliability. Dave Mulholland, General Manager at Sterling PVCu, said: “Haffner has an excellent reputation in the industry for delivering reliable, high performance machinery, so we didn’t hesitate to turn to them for our latest investment. This has included the purchase of four new SBA machining centres, multiple in-line welders, corner cleaners and a new Graf Synergy SLS CNC seamless cill welder. This extensive package ensures we can further maximise our operational efficiencies to support our growth strategy.”

Established in September 1993, Sterling PVCu is dedicated to delivering high-quality windows, doors and conservatories in PVC-U, aluminium and composite profiles. With over 30 years of industry expertise, the company operates three dedicated factories in Warrington, manufacturing and installing high-quality products for the trade and domestic markets.

With a capacity to manufacture over 2,000 frames per week, Sterling PVCu relies on the reliability and performance of Haffner’s machines. Dave said: “As part of an ongoing maintenance contract, we receive regular servicing by Haffner’s qualified engineers, which guarantees optimal machine performance and minimises any downtime. This gives us a layer of reassurance for volume output consistency.”

Sterling PVCu’s future plans include further expanding its aluminium manufacturing capacity and diversifying its PVC-U product range. This includes casement windows, flush sash windows, single residential doors, French doors, patios, bifolds, composite doors and fully accredited FD30 fire doors.

Return business is always noteworthy but return business on this scale is impressive. Dave concludes: “Our partnership with Haffner Ltd has been a cornerstone of our success. Their reliable machinery and continued support have allowed us to consistently deliver high-quality products to our customers. We look forward to continuing this successful collaboration.”
