SUPPORT FROM EU REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND.

GRADY WINDOW MANUFACTURERS LTD:

Capital initiatives in Grady Window Manufacture are co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020.

Aims: The Capital has supported an investment into new equipment giving Grady Window Manufacture a competitive edge.

We invested in new manufacturing equipment including a 5 axis Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine which is manufacturing components that were previously made on three machines, allowing more flexibility, accuracy, increased output and improved speed of assembly of doors and door frames. 

This CNC machine enables us to offer an enhanced door range can utilise the company’s existing sales channels and capture additional higher value sales from existing and new customers.

The support was also extended to a Single Side Edge bander machine which enables us to meet the increased focus on door security and fire safety, particularly in the UK market.  

With the equipment and flexibility facilitated by the equipment purchased we can also support increasing door heights to over 2.44m (8ft) which is popular in many high end developments.  This is critical for achieving sales in shared entrance scenarios and in markets beyond the UK and Ireland where higher doors are more common.

A new ItalPresse was also installed that enables faster cycle times and increased output to compliment the equipment above. 

Results: Increased productivity and competitiveness was achieved as a result of this investment.
