Universal Set To Shape Standards In Ireland And Scotland
Universal Arches, now part of Kaliber Group, has introduced a weekly delivery schedule to Northern and the Republic of Ireland and a bi-weekly to service to Scotland, as the company looks set to expand its geographical reach.
The company has an impressive reputation in England and Wales as the only arching and shaped frame specialist with ISO9001:2015 and has won the G09 Award for Specialist of the Year, along with two other finalist nominations in 2007 and 2014. Universal Arches has also done much to improve manufacturing tolerances, thanks to the adoption of 3D computer modelling for over 92% of designs.
The new weekly delivery schedules to Northern and the Republic of Ireland and bi-weekly to Scotland will be fulfilled within the Kaliber Group, through sister company KAT, thereby eliminating any requirement for external hauliers who rely on distribution hubs and multiple handling. Lead times are 10-14 days from point of order with the aim in the medium-term to shorten this further.
Quality is key at Universal Arches and it is for good reason that they are the only authorised arching and shaped frame manufacturers for The Residence Collection and Solidor. There’s also production capacity for 400 frames per week, each one fully hand made by skilled with staff, many of which have served the company for 10, 15 or even 20 years, since the business began in 1996.
David Richards, Kaliber Group chairman, commented: ‘It’s the next obvious step for us to open up the Irish and Scottish markets for our range of bespoke arched and shaped frames. Our quality is unsurpassed and with the Group operational resources, we can supply these new markets with impressive regularity through a 10-14 day lead time with OTIF levels in excess of 97%.’
