Senior Architectural Systems expands manufacturing capacity in Rotherham

Senior Architectural Systems, the aluminium fenestration solutions provider, is set to expand its manufacturing capacity with the opening of a new facility in Rotherham.

Located close to Senior’s existing head office and main manufacturing centre in Denaby near Doncaster, the new Rotherham site on Mangham Road will provide an additional 90,000 square feet of usable storage and production space.

Together with Senior’s established sites in South Yorkshire and Scotland, the new facility will increase the company’s overall UK manufacturing capacity to 220,000 square feet. The move is part of Senior’s wider strategic expansion plan to enhance the thermal-efficiency of its entire product range and to significantly increase production of its low U-value and UK patented PURe® aluminium windows and doors system.

Once the new site is fully operational, Senior will be able to maximise the space in its existing Denaby HQ.

Senior Architectural Systems’ Managing Director Mark Wadsworth said: “Since launching our patented PURe® windows and doors in 2015, we have seen demand continuously grow and so it was always our intention to expand our production capabilities.

“We have made a number of investments at our main Denaby site, so it was important that we could both complement and replicate this successful and sustainable manufacturing model by finding a site that was not only similar in size, but was also nearby.

“The new site in Rotherham fits the brief perfectly. We are excited to commence production of our PURe® system in the New Year and look forward to maximising this new capacity to continue to enhance the thermal-performance of our complete range of products.”

The new site in Rotherham will also provide valuable storage space to assist with Senior’s nationwide delivery service and coincides with the company’s difficult decision to close its distribution centre in Newport, Wales. All customers in Wales and the South of England will now be served by the two main facilities in South Yorkshire, with Senior’s branch in Livingston continuing to support orders to Scotland and Ireland.
