  • MIGHTON PRODUCTS EXPANDS WITH NEW WAREHOUSE

    new warehouseMighton has completed a new warehouse that will allow it to expand its existing on-site warehousing capacity and help cater for increased demand from new and existing customers.

    The company manufactures and distributes a wide range of products, including those designed specially for the timber sash and casement window market, and says the addition of the warehouse is part of a larger expansion plan that will aim to further improve and expand its product offering.

    Mighton’s chairman, Mike Derham said: “We already offer a comprehensive range of over 2,000 market leading sash, casement and door products, and the completion of our new warehouse, which started in February this year, is part of a larger investment that will allow us to develop that offering even further, including our new and exclusive Mighton Ultra range of exterior paints and coatings for joinery, as well as range of high quality portable woodworking machines for joinery.

    “The introduction of the new warehouse will also allow us to offer a bigger and better trade counter for our customers,” Mike continued. “We are one of the oldest and most respected suppliers of hardware in the UK, and this recent expansion is another landmark in the history of the company as we continue to grow and improve. The bigger warehouse has also meant we can take on two new employees, which together with the investment in stock and capacity, will ensure we have a great team in place to help meet future demand and further advance our customer service.”

  • MIGHTON PARTNER ANKER STUY GIVES SEATING A GREAT FINISH IN ABBEY RENOVATION

    Westminster AbbeyMighton Products partner Anker Stuy Verven (ASV) has been selected as supplier of the colour stains and lacquers for the new seating as part of a prestigious yearlong renovation of Westminster Abbey that was finally completed in June of this year.

    As part of the interior maintenance works that took place at the iconic London landmark 2,200 wooden chairs, with the Westminster Abbey Arms embossed in to each of the backrests, were commissioned and have now become the new primary form of seating distributed throughout the building.

    The finish for these chairs carries a series of heavy demands and therefore required an exemplary quality lacquer capable of providing long lasting protection against candle wax, as well as tough resistance against scratches and abrasions. The 2-component ASV lacquer that was eventually specified complies with the EN 71-3 standard, certifying it free from heavy metals and even suitable for use on children's toys, as well as complying with both DIN 4102 B1 and DIN 68861 B1 standards, which demonstrates its chemical resistance.

    However, it was not just the technical performance of this finish that was under high scrutiny but also its aesthetic appeal. Finding the right colour stain that could give the lacquer its desired hue proved to be a challenging process with eight individual shades of brown being developed from ASV’s HD LM Color stain before a selection was finally made.

    Emile Stuy, Export Manager at ASV, said: "The finished Abbey Chair has an aesthetically beautiful appearance through the blunt-molded finish, making it perfect for the architecture and ambience of the Abbey. Being part of the process that made these chairs a reality, alongside Leon Volk, owner of our Netherlands based dealer Oxid Coatings, gave us the rare opportunity to work on such a prestigious and challenging project.”

    Mighton has been distributing Anker Stuy products to its specialist joinery customers throughout the UK since 2016 with next day delivery and a simple pricing structure which has seen a decidedly positive response. Since the completion of the Westminster Abbey project Mighton has also added the full range of specialist timber treatments, including interior finishes, to its established range of paints and coatings that are finding increasing favour with joinery manufacturers. Mighton plans to also include the addition of paints and coatings for other, non-timber, applications in the near future.

  • WELL-TRAVELLED STAIRCASES GAIN THE MIGHTON FINISH

    York Uni

    A striking cladding design was created for a pair of staircases at York University with installation being completed within the students’ three-week spring break, despite having to be constructed on site before being dismantled and removed for painting then brought back for reassembly.

    The unusual design incorporated 10mm shadow gaps, which required finishing in-situ to ensure the accuracy of the gaps before the MDF panels could be factory painted, as Robert Bailey-Hague, MD of subtractor Bailey-Hague Joinery explained:

    “Everything had to be completed within the strict schedule but this was the only way it could be done. The shadow gaps were an important part of the overall look of the staircases and it would have been impossible to achieve that by fitting painted panels on site. At the same time, on-site painting would have been out of the question, not least because of ventilation in the enclosed space.”

    Specialist paint supplier Mighton Products worked closely with Bailey-Hague Joinery in not only in choosing the right materials but also in producing a colour match for the non-standard grey that was specified. The company had been using Mighton’s exterior products so had no hesitation in putting its interior range to work.

    A team of five joiners and one spray-painter worked on the project, with the panels making the 30 mile-plus round trip to Bayley-Hague’s spray-shop in Sherburn-in-Elmet. The moisture resistant MDF was treated with Mighton Ultra high-build MDF Internal Primer and Internal Opaque Topcoat.

    Robert Bailey-Hague concluded: “It took a bit of careful management and planning to do it to the right specification and within the time limits but the finished product looks good and the client is very happy with it.”

     

  • ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL BWF MEMBERS DAY FOR MIGHTON PRODUCTS

    Mighton BWF 2Technical Sales Manager Nick Ryley says: “The response from those who visited our stand was really positive; to both our hardware and our Mighton Ultra paints and coatings. We have taken away some strong leads as well as gaining valuable feedback on our new Mighton machinery.

    "As always, the event provides a great opportunity for everyone in the industry to get together and catch up on the latest products available and network with a real mix of industry individuals as well as large companies. We will be returning again next year.”

    The BWF’s annual event was held on June 15th at Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel near Daventry, and saw a number of seminars and workshops from technical specialists and guest speakers in the woodworking industry. The event, which is open to anyone in the timber industry, saw around 170 people attend the one-day event.

    This was the 8th year attending for Mighton Products, and key products the team were promoting included the Angel Ventlock, new Mighton machines X-Cut and Scribe-It, along with a growing choice of Mighton Ultra paints and coatings.

    Mighton Ultra, Mighton’s in-house brand of paints and coatings, has been offered up to the UK joinery market since 2016 thanks to the company’s close partnership with leading paint manufacturer Anker Stuy. All products in the range provide easy and consistent application with exceptional durability and fast drying results

  • MIGHTON EXTENDS PARTNERSHIP WITH COATINGS PRODUCER ANKER STUY

    Emile-Stuy-of-Anker-Stuy-and-Mighton-600x330Cambridgeshire based timber window and door hardware specialist, Mighton Products, has extended its partnership with Anker Stuy Verven BV to include a larger range of the Dutch paint and coatings manufacturer’s products. Mighton will now add the full range of specialist timber treatments, including interior finishes, to its established range of paints and coatings that are finding increasing favour with joinery manufacturers. Plans also include the addition of paints and coatings for other, non-timber, applications.

    Mighton has been distributing Anker Stuy products to its specialist joinery customers with next day delivery and a simple pricing structure which, with the development of products specifically developed for the UK, has drawn excellent response from customers resulting in significant sales growth. Mighton Chairman Mike Derham has now committed the company to develop additional markets such as for timber architectural façades, for which Anker Stuy products have been specified with great success. These include protection of the extensive timber façade of Cheshire’s Lymm Fire Station, which has won praise for its avant-garde design and execution.

    “We have very quickly developed an excellent working rapport with Anker Stuy which has enabled us to develop our coatings division with confidence,” said Mike Derham. “This has led to us extending the relationship earlier and further than we had anticipated. The company has an excellent research and development facility that is both technically brilliant and highly responsive to the specific needs of our UK customers.”

    For Anker Stuy, Emile Stuy said that the partnership has matured very quickly and added: “Mighton has shown a very real understanding of the needs of its customers in terms of coatings and paints. The company is working with our technical departments to develop new and innovative products for the UK that extend high performance whilst also offering ease of application. We will introduce a number of new products with Mighton in coming months.”
