Facades distributor Vivalda Group plc has completed a major investment project that brings the benefit of digitally-controlled cutting technology to all eight of its locations across the UK and Ireland.

Sean Kelly, facilities manager of Vivalda Group, demonstrates the scale of the newly acquired cutting technology at the business’s Birmingham facility

The £250,000 investment comprises the acquisition of an additional seven beam saws, supplied by Schelling and Mayer, with Magi-Cut computer controls ensuring total accuracy.

Minimal wastage through better template design and off-site fabrication are core elements of Vivalda’s added-value offer.

Ben Jayes, managing director of Vivalda Group plc, said: “While terms such as construction 4.0, BIM and DfMA are becoming part of the industry’s new vocabulary, accuracy, quality control and offsite fabrication have been part of our DNA for nearly two decades.

“This major investment demonstrates Vivalda Group’s core strategy to set new quality standards for the off-site fabrication sector.

“Contractors and specifiers are demanding total accuracy and zero defects on site. This technology ensures we continue to operate at the highest levels of performance in the industry.

“Given the fact that manufacturers are now producing board sizes of up to 5.0 metres by 3.0 metres, Vivalda Group has a continuous programme to make sure we have the appropriate cutting technology and logistics in place.

“Our customers know they can rely on the Vivalda Group to supply their orders on time, accurately cut and knowing each panel will be individually labelled so it can be lifted off the pallet and placed directly on to the wall.”

Products supplied by Vivalda include Marley Eternit, Cembrit, Rockpanel, Trespa and Fibre C. Vivalda also owns the PURA Facades brand.
