Following a fire at its Buckinghamshire factory in April this year, QIC Trims is now up and running with its new facility, which opened last month.

QIC Trims supplies aluminium trims and associated products for the interior fit-out sector, and the fire caused a major business setback, specifically to the paint line and oven. Thankfully, the fire caused no physical injuries.

Focusing on meeting customer demand with minimal delay, QIC Trims worked quickly and efficiently to implement a solution. The manufacturer also seized the opportunity presented by the unfortunate occurrence to begin working with powder-coating enterprise Gema to build a new and improved paint line that would not only cover existing demand but also meet the requirements of the growing market. A new oven was sourced from bespoke industrial oven specialist Havilland.

QIC Trims is holding an open day at its new facility on Thursday 4 October.
