Why Smart

Continued investment into our state-of-the-art, 60,000m² facility

Through continued investment, our state-of-the-art, 60,000m² manufacturing facility in the south west of England is now home to four extrusion presses and four powder coat paint lines, as well as a wide range of machining and finishing equipment. Our new fourth press is our most energy efficient yet, it uses 33% less energy, and reflects our objective of continually innovating to provide a more efficient production facility.


Smart is largest single-site extrusion plant in the UK

Already the largest single-site extrusion plant in the UK, the installation of our fourth press allows us to provide both a dedicated resource and guaranteed capacity for all our extrusion customers.

With our extrusion, machining, finishing and packaging processes all on one site, as well as our own fleet of delivery vehicles, we have complete control of every customer order, from receipt right through to final delivery.

We also recently invested in a completely new die storage system which allows us to have 99% of our dies ready to run on demand when the customer requires. Our service schedule of the dies allows us to store 50% of dies pre-filled before they need cleaning with caustic solution (meaning 50% less waste) and dies can be sent to our presses within hours, not days. Our caustic waste, which is harmful to the environment, and which would once have been sent to landfill at end of life, is now re-used, with a local business re-using the waste solution.
