Newview’s Bold Move Into Window Manufacturing

Fastener specialist Rapierstar has collaborated with Carl F Groupco and Eurocell to help a long-established installer to launch its new window and door manufacturing business, Newframe.

Newframe comes fron Newview, the well respected south coast installation business.

A new state-of-the-art 15,000 sq.ft PVC-U window and door factory in Worthing will produce around 500 units every week (using Eurocell systems), plus Newframe’s own new range of composite doors branded ‘Coastal Composites’ to service the company’s growing new build client list plus booming contracts for aviation noise reduction.



More than £1 million has been invested in new machinery and technology to create a manufacturing facility capable of delivering on Newframe’s goal to raise the bar in terms of quality and service in the local market, as well as for customers across the south of England.

To assist in the set up of this new venture, Rapierstar was invited to provide all the specialist advice needed to develop a fastener specification that will optimise both manufacturing efficiency and safety, as well as long term finished product performance and quality. It means that everyone in the Newframe factory benefits from clear guidance on which fasteners to use for the many different applications across all window types.

Rapierstar produced a series of standard operating procedure sheets to help train the new staff to select the correct fasteners for each of the cells within the factory. These pictorial sheets show which screws work best with the Eurocell profiles and the hardware supplied by Carl F Groupco.


 “We’re really excited to have our new factory up and running and really value the support of all our supply chain partners, including Rapierstar.”

“The support from Carl F Groupco in particular has been amazing and hugely important for us to have them as a one stop shop for all our hardware requirements,” continues Newframe’s White. “Being able to manufacture our own windows and doors allows us to offer shorter lead times, reduce the distance products travel from factory to fitting and give us better control of customer orders and contracts. It also means we have been able to develop a window and door specification and product portfolio with quality in everything right down to the tiniest component.”
