QIC Trims, in association with Gema, has installed a new semi-automated paint line at its manufacturing facility at Gawcott, Buckinghamshire. The company manufactures aluminium trims for the interior fit-out sector, specialising in suspended ceilings, drylining and glass partitions.

QIC has made significant investment to increase capacity and broaden its finishing capabilities. It is now able to supply powder-coated aluminium trims, glass partitioning components and bespoke fabricated items which can be painted in standard white RAL 9010 or special colours as required by the customer.

The facility at Gawcott is home to the head office, paint line, warehouse and fabrication shop.

Neil Miller, national sales manager at QIC, said: “We have recently won long-term contracts for multiple new projects and clients. The investment in our new paint facility will ensure we have the additional capacity to continue to provide our services and world class products to meet customer demand.”

The new paint line allows a first at QIC: to optimise powder recovery, reclaim and recycle 100 per cent RAL 9010 powder. Sealed powder circuits also guarantee dust free working conditions during operation and colour change.

The company employs more than 15 people at Gawcott with 40,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
