Scotia opens new factory and celebrates 35 successful years with Halo
Long-standing Halo fabricator Scotia Windows and Doors has moved into an expansive new factory in Kilmarnock, with even greater capacity to serve trade customers across Scotland.
Supported by two trade centres in Alloa and Hamilton, the company is well placed to provide Halo’s industry-leading PVCu systems to an even greater number of discerning trade and commercial customers.
Scotia’s MD Robert McKnight explains: We’ve now moved into our fantastic new purpose-built production facility and head office in Kilmarnock. The site covers 59,000 sq ft and, along with the large, modern building, there are an extensive number of loading bays and plenty of car parking for the convenience of our customers. We’ve invested in two new state-of-the-art front end cutting machines to add to our existing window and door manufacturing machinery and all this equipment is now fully installed in the bigger, better building.
We have taken the opportunity to streamline the production process which will enable us to achieve greater efficiencies, and this capacity means we can likely increase production to 1,600 PVCu frames per week. We are extremely proud of the significant growth of our business. Scotia works in partnership with housing associations, property developers, building firms, installers and more. We now have the capacity to support even more customers, and continue supporting them as they grow too. We look forward to welcoming customers – old and new – to our showroom where we will be showcasing our extensive range of high quality Halo products.
Scotia Windows and Doors has been using Halo since our company was founded 35 years ago, and the quality of this profile has been part and parcel of our success. We rely on Halo (and VEKA Group) for exceptional products and service, and that means Scotia customers can rely on us for the same. With two trade centres in addition to our new factory, we can serve customers across Scotland with quality at their convenience.
Neil Evans, VEKA Group’s Sales Director said: We’re very pleased to congratulate Scotia Windows and Doors on 35 years with Halo and wish the team every success in the new factory. Scotia is a great example of a hard-working Halo customer that knows ‘putting customers first’ is key to the success of the business overall. I’m sure that customers across Scotland will make good use of the trade centres to access Scotia’s fantastic product range. Here’s to the next three and a half decades with Halo!
