Kestrel Building Products invests in quality

  • 9 May 2023

Kestrel is investing in manufacturing and storage at its Lincolnshire headquarters as part of its commitment to quality and reliability.

A new mixer and cooler, introduced in late 2022, increases productivity and reduces energy consumption at the Scunthorpe factory.

The mixer takes raw materials to create a dry blend. This blend is used in the extrusion process to create the approximately 800 products in the Kestrel range.


However, this is just part of a broader process designed to ensure product quality and reliability. This is according to Kestrel operations manager Scott Sinclair…

Kestrel has one of the largest raw material storage facilities in the industry,” he says.

“This has helped us to ensure continuity of supply, which has really paid off in recent years. When shortages have been rife in many areas, we have worked hard to ensure that Kestrel products are in good supply.”

To underline that commitment to reliability, Kestrel implements a stringent quality assurance process. This means the mixing plant is externally tested on a regular basis.

Scott adds: “The process is calibrated by UKAS certified technicians each month and everything is manufactured within an ISO9001 compliant environment to ensure that we are producing good quality products.”

“We tell our customers ‘rely on it’ and the investment in machinery, processes, storage, and quality is all part that commitment to quality and reliability, helping us to ensure that Kestrel products are in good supply when our customers need them.”
