  • ‘From Russia With Hope' Ride 2019 | Our sponsored charity

    Mighton is proud to sponsor and support ‘Hope House’
    as part of the GM Fundraising Team.

    Hope House provides palliative care for children with terminal conditions and support for their families, both on site and in their homes. Hope House receives only nominal support from the government, with over 95% of its £5 million annual operating costs being met by charitable donations and GM Fundraising is proud to be their largest single donor.

    The team of industry based, motivated volunteers, who run GM Fundraising, give their

    time freely and are committed to delivering the highest quality events whilst ensuring that every penny raised reaches the children and families at Hope House.

    The charity is best known for spectacular Gala Dinners, annual Golf Days, Long-Distance Cycle Rides and Footy Fives competition, but also have a number of smaller, niche events, which take place throughout the year too. Mike Derham, Chairman - Mighton Products, says, “We’re proud to have been supporting this initiative for several years. The impact that this charity has, makes a real difference to so many people.” The 2019 main event is

    taking place in June 2019, ‘From Russia With Hope’, and sees a cycling team of 18 ride through 10 countries in 12 days, ending up at Hope House Children’s Hospice. The total tally is 2,730 miles with 34,000 ft of climbing. Mighton and Avia are an official kit sponsor and are part of the ‘ride support’.

    The team will be covering in excess of 280 miles each day as they cycle

    from St Petersburg, Russia, through Finland, into the Arctic Circle, through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Wales, before returning to their final destination - Hope House



    Mighton has answered the call from joiners and factory coaters with the creation of a quick-drying exterior paint with the potential to be touch-dry for recoating in as little as 30 minutes in ideal conditions.

    The water-based formulation, named Modifica Quick Dry – or Modifica QD – is suitable for all exterior wood types including Accoya, and offers the same no-compromise performance and finish as all other Mighton Ankerstuy coatings. It was designed in response to growing demand for a quick-drying finish, especially among factory finishers.

    Mighton Technical Coatings Director Graham Avery explained: “The move towards production line manufacture and factory finishing is still growing at a pace and more and more joiners told us they needed quicker drying paints to speed up their processes.

    “We worked very hard with our partners at Anker Stuy to develop a formulation that would live up to their demands without compromising on performance or finish. The result is a coating with a typical touch-dry time of as little as 30 minutes where the correct recommended drying conditions are implemented.

    “This not only means faster and more efficient throughput for anyone who is factory processing, but it’s also a great boost for any other joiner who is in a hurry; whether it’s to recoat, mask an edge for two toning or simply get a finished piece ready to take to site.”

    Modifica QD is available in all the same opaque colours that are offered with other the exterior paints in the Mighton Ankerstuy range.

    Its introduction comes shortly after the company launched its new and extended paints and stains range with three times the colour choices as well as the addition of Interior and Specialist coatings.

    Mighton Chairman Mike Derham said: “We are always ready to listen to what joiners and coaters want from a paint to help them do the best job they can, as cost-effectively as they can. This is the thinking that led to the creation of Modifica QD and we are sure it will give them exactly what they want.”

    As the Mighton Machinery range from Mighton Products continues to gain momentum following its 2016 launch, it has earned the company high praise from a number of skilled joinery firms across the country, with the latest review coming from Swift Joinery Manufacturers Ltd.

    The Castleford-based joinery specialist was quick to commend the speed and quality of Mighton’s X-Cut™ Glazing Bead Jointing Machine, as Steve Greenwood explains. “We purchased the machine 18 months ago due to high demand for plant-on Georgian Bars, and by far the most beneficial feature of the machine is its speed. It’s proven to be a tremendous time saver on production without compromising on accuracy; we cannot fault the quality of the manufacture on the joints.”

    Drawing on significant personal joinery experience, the Mighton Machinery range came about following months of research and development by Chairman Mike Derham and the Mighton team. The range of machines is designed to make joinery production quicker, easier and more efficient for both the small or large scale operator. The popular semi-automatic Mighton X-Cut™ machine produces perfect cross-joints on glazing beads, coming complete with tooling to suit the timber profile of the user’s choosing. Accurate and consistent, it allows for simple tool changes and no lengthy manuals mean it’s quick to set up and easy to operate, something Steve can vouch for: “We took advantage of a visit from the Mighton Mobile Demo Van which we found incredibly helpful. We were able to see first-hand just how straightforward the X-Cut™ machine was set up and operate.”

    With 16 years in the joinery industry, Steve and his team of 20 have been buying Sash Lift and Eyes, Angel Ventlock® Window Restrictors and Securefitch® Fasteners from Mighton for 10 years.

    Mighton’s Chairman Mike Derham adds: “With many years combined experience between the team, Swift Joinery has grown to become a true specialist in the manufacture of bespoke timber windows and doors. Manufacturing and building 95% of their products at their Castleford site, they are able to oversee every aspect of production, ensuring that their bespoke design and hand-crafted products are built to each customer’s exacting standards. We are pleased to hear that the X-Cut™ machine has contributed to the speed and accuracy of their production, as one of the foundations our machinery range was built on was saving our joinery customers both time and money by simplifying and speeding up the manufacturing process.

    “As the Mighton Machines range continues to pique interest, we are thrilled to announce that a dedicated catalogue has been introduced this year, packed with product info, case studies and information on the free demonstrations that we offer.”
