£100k investment increases Vista’s single shift capacity to 1,000 doors per week

Keith Sadler: Managing Director of Vista PanelsVista, one of the UK’s largest and fastest growing composite door manufacturers, has invested £100k in a new CNC router, increasing their capacity to 1,000 doors per week on a single shift. As managing director Keith Sadler explains, an increase in demand for Vista’s market leading product, XtremeDoor, prompted the Merseyside based fabricator to implement the next stage of its investment strategy.

“We’re currently making around 700 composite doors per week on a single shift, which is close to our current maximum capacity, so decided to invest in new machinery in preparation for future growth” Keith explains. “The CNC incorporates a dual head so will allow us to meet the increased demand and continue to offer the high level of quality and service our customers have come to expect.”

The new CNC, which was supplied by the world leading manufacturer SCM Group, is just the latest in a long line of investments made by the industry leading company. Last year Vista purchased a saw, welder and corner cleaner, and in 2013 invested in an edgebander, beam saw and paint spray booth. “Regular investment is an integral part of our strategy and means we can retain our position at the very forefront of the composite door market” Keith adds. “We acquire new machinery to improve production but we also invest in regular product updates, giving our customers new features to sell every year.”

Recent additions to the XtremeDoor range includes a selection of long stainless steel handles, a heritage lock and a selection of new glass designs. Vista have also extended their colour range, and can now offer both the door slab and outerframe in any shade in the RAL spectrum.
