From humble beginnings on a commercial farm site, Ultimate70® has grown and developed into one of the leading PVCu Window and Door fabricators within the South East. The entire operation is currently based along Freebournes Road in Witham (Essex) just leading off from the main A12 towards London. The factory is a modern 35,000 Sq. ft. unit securely surrounded to provide staff and customer parking there is also a separate area to the side of the factory large enough to cater for all sizes of delivery vehicles that supply various production materials.
The manufacturing capacity is around 1200 items per week although this is generally maintained at 70% allowing for movement in sales, fast-track jobs and the ever increasing demand of contract work which may be required in short term periods and can cause large 'spikes' in manufacturing figures. However, these trends are admirably catered for with the intervention of 'State of Art' machinery and modern bar coded software programmes – all of which are costly necessities but form the backbone and philosophy of the company.
All Ultimate70® frames are fully Kite marked and accredited with many of the industry’s highest BSI standards ranging from manufacture, processing, quality control energy ratings and in conjunction with full CE declaration. Certain products can be further specified to meet the popular Secure By Design scheme.
Most of the Ultimate70® range of products are made from the Legend 70 suite of profiles. These sections are generally categorised as Bevelled/Chamfered or Decorative/Ogee. Each of these multi-chambered designed profiles is dimensionally the same, allowing for the same size glass units being able to fit in either and without compromising any of the energy rating efficiencies.
The introduction of the Residence Nine Heritage & Conservation window system has provided a new market place within the glazing & retail industry due to its aesthetics and largely 'hand finished' mechanically jointed corners – replicating a traditional timber appearance.
