Window and door maker Allan Brothers hails brighter future with £2.6 million investment
September 22, 2023
A historic wood window and door maker says it is opening fresh growth opportunities with a £2.6 million investment.
Allan Brothers is revamping production line equipment at its Berwick-upon-Tweed factory.
Bosses say the outlay – described as the company’s largest for nearly two decades – will spur growth by as much as a quarter across the next three years.
They added apparatus, including a CNC window line, cutting and moulder lines and new conveyors, roller tables and ancillary equipment, will start being installed later this year.
Morten Bach Valsted [pictured, above], managing director at the 1811-founded business, said: “This will make a massive difference to our overall output and speed of production.
“It will also make us a much more energy efficient and sustainable manufacturer of timber windows and doors.
“We have, for some time, been making improvements across the whole company, from streamlining back-office sales and purchasing through to the factory floor and dispatch.
“This latest investment is a logical next step, and is designed to deliver greater growth and profitability, better service for customers and better job prospects and security for our workforce.”
