For the larger window and door manufacturer, SCM can offer CNC machining centres and dedicated machinery and production lines. For example, long established and leading UK joinery manufacturer, Howarth Windows and Doors, has recently installed two SCM Accord CNC machining centres, an Accord 20FX and a high specification Accord 40FX at its New Holland, north Lincolnshire factory.
