A rooflight company, whose sales have risen 30 per cent in the past year, has invested £250,000 on machinery to boost production.

Sunsquare, in Kempson Way, Bury St Edmunds, says it is the first rooflight manufacturer have a five-axis machine centre, which enables it to make four rooflights an hour.

Sunsquare’s three Elumatic machinery centres give it a swift, but cost-effective production process.

In addition, the ribbon has just been cut to its new glazing factory, which separates the two main production phases for each skylight.

While one factory creates frames and upstands with the new machinery, the other houses the preparation and installation of the glass.

Justin Seldis, managing director, said:“In 2015 we are taking our internal processes several steps further.

“A bespoke piece of software will allow an unprecedented chain of events to unfold creating the world’s first seamless rooflights order-to-delivery system.”

Clients can now instantly be provided with a delivery date on placing their order.

Even the dimensions are sent directly to the relevant machining centres ready to be transformed into a high specification skylight.

Sunsquare says it is one of, if not the quickest rooflight manufacturers with the majority of its products dispatched within three weeks.
