Räum ramps up with 25,000 square-foot ali factory

Dekko, UK glazing’s premier high-end product supplier, has expanded its manufacturing capacity with a new aluminium factory.

The 25,000 square foot facility, located close by the fabricator’s main base in Greater Manchester, will allow Dekko to significantly ramp up production of its celebrated Räum range.

First launched five years ago, Räum bifolds, patio doors, windows and entrance doors offer sleek sightlines, smooth operation and first-class thermal performance.

The range has benefitted hugely from the soaring interest in premium aluminium glass and glazing products that’s taken place in recent decades, and helped installers across the country break into lucrative new markets.

Consistent high demand has led Dekko to invest in the new factory, which is allowing it to scale up production, and hold more stock, cutting lead times, as Sales Director Kurt Greatrex explains.

“When we first launched Räum five years ago, we expected it to do well, but we had no idea just how popular it would go on to be.

“At the time, aluminium products were held in high-regard – bifolds especially. But there were some in the industry who were still understandably cautious. I think some people feared it was just a fad, and would quickly disappear.

“Five years on, that’s clearly not the case – aluminium windows, bifolds and patio doors have become a central part of twenty-first century home improvement, and we’ve been delighted to see dozens of Räum installers reap the benefits.

“After five years of very strong demand for Räum, we decided the time was right to invest, and expand our ali fabrication capacity.

“With our new factory, we’re able to offer more products, more quickly – and the extra space allows us to hold more stock, which means shorter lead times.

“With demand for high-end glazing products soaring after lockdown, we’re confident that Räum will continue to go from strength to strength in the years ahead.”
