Passive Window and Door Manufacturing Area

Thomas Joinery’s aim is to grow their business sustainably by increasing manufacturing capability, reducing energy consumption and associated costs and providing ongoing employment and training opportunities as well as continuing to manufacture and supply high quality sustainable products. To achieve this aim they need to update and improve their existing premises and processes by:- • Extending the workshop area, including the spray shop and providing timber and briquette stock storage capacity • Modernising the spray shop facility to increase volume and efficiency • Putting in place ‘greener’ energy solutions e.g. LED lighting The business has designed a ‘Passive Window’ which has been certified by the German Passive Haus Institute. They are the only manufacturer in the UK of these high specification timber items. This project is essential to test the ‘Passive Windows and Doors’ for Secure by Design by TRADA (trade recognised organisation for product testing) and to meet new demands in addition to regular orders, whilst continuing to secure the employment and training of local people.
