Custom Profiles Ltd, a leading independent UK supplier of bespoke aluminium extrusions, have lots to celebrate this month. Not only have they just completed their 10th successful year of trading, they’ve also moved their entire operation to their own dedicated offices and warehouse to Clevedon in Somerset.
Managing Director Gerry Smith explains why. “Having originally been based in Avonmouth, we chose Clevedon because retaining our local staff was important to us. A unit in Clevedon became available at a competitive price so we grabbed the opportunity to stay local and being close to the M5 and M4 motorways is an enormous benefit. South West is the perfect place to drive sales forward. Clevedon has a great feel and we can see ourselves remaining here in the future. Having previously shared premises with another company it is an exciting time for us. With all facilities under our own control in Clevedon we are now even better placed to offer the flexibility and fast turn-rounds the market demands. “
Custom Profiles Ltd supply local manufacturing industries near Bristol and the surrounding area including sectors such as construction and electronics. They’ve supplied aluminium components for a wide range of industries such as lighting and advertising display. Their profiles have been used in products such as flight cases and window blinds. They also supply the rest of the UK, export to Europe and have recently fulfilled their first order in Canada to supplier aluminium components to a Canadian manufacturer of global satellite systems.
From the outside the building looks unassuming but inside its warehouse has been totally refurbished with the introduction of cantilever and “A” frame racking providing a storage facility capable of holding the 100’s of bespoke extruded items and components ready for a ‘just-in-time’ delivery. This means a customer can have their own designed aluminium extrusions held in stock and available for delivery within 24 hours. In addition a fabrication area has been created which includes two Emmegi saws capable of cutting up to 250mm in diameter.
In the 10 years of trading Custom Profiles haves supplied over £9m worth of aluminium extrusions and components to manufacturing and construction companies many of whom are in the South West. With their new Clevedon premises, retained experienced staff, UK & European customers and their expanding global exports, Custom Profiles are very much looking forward to their next 10 years of trading.
