Having secured a prime position on the LHC U9 PVCu Windows and Door Framework, Anglian was delighted to host a visit from LHCs Divisional Managers and their teams.
A total of eight LHC staff made the trip to East Anglia from their locations spread across England, Scotland and Wales.
Anglian is a vertically integrated organisation with an internal supply chain with a manufacturing capacity of 8000 windows and doors per week. The Norwich visit was an ideal opportunity for them to witness the whole manufacturing process. The tour started with the blending of the PVCu raw material mix which is subsequently fed to the extruders to produce the PVCu frame sections. The next factory showcased Anglian’s glass processing capabilities including the computer optimised cutting tables, the toughening process and sealed unit assembly lines. The fabrication factories saw all components being assembled together to form the completed window and door frames.
Following the tour the full range of products were demonstrated at Anglian’s impressive Norwich showroom. Followed by a presentation outlining the resident engagement approach used on site and an insight into Anglian’s ongoing investment in IT systems to provide clients the opportunity to receive project status updates in real time.
‘It was great to meet the recently expanded LHC team and understand further how we can collaborate to promote the many benefits of the new U9 Framework. With LHCs strong technical focus and our capacity and commitment to quality together we make a compelling offer.’
Stephen Preece, Sales Director, Anglian
‘It is important for LHC to develop positive working relationships with all companies appointed to its frameworks. We were pleased to take up the offer to visit Anglian’s impressive facilities and meet key staff. These visits are essential for developing relationships and can only lead to better framework project management throughout the process from opportunity identification to project completion.’
Neil Barker, Divisional Manager, LHC
