The Salvador Effect Crosses the Irish Sea


Kells Windows, an award winning family run business specialising in the manufacture, reproduction and restoration of period style windows and doors situated in County Meath, are the latest company to choose Salvador in order to transform their crosscutting production and output.

After discussions with Andy Walsh, Sales Director at Daltons Wadkin and a visit to the W16 exhibition at the NEC where they saw Salvador machines put through their paces, the company decided on a Superpush 200 Optimising Automatic System which incorporates 6200 mm infeed tables, twin electro pneumatic aligners and bar code label printer amongst its many features.

The machine has been installed at Kells in County Meath by Daltons Wadkin engineers and is now revolutionising performance in the mill. On only the second day of installation the Salvador processed one and a half days work in just two hours.

Brothers Declan and Damien Grimes, who have worked on many prestigious projects not only in Ireland but also in UK and US markets, approached Andy Walsh for advice with regard to improving crosscutting performance. Andy subsequently visited Kells Windows in Ireland and was delighted with the outcome.  “Kells are a family run business similar to our own.  They believe above all in quality of manufacture and are leading suppliers of window design and technology, particularly in the Irish market.  We were delighted to have the opportunity of putting in yet another Salvador and even more so as the installation is in Ireland.  We will shortly have Salvadors installed in both the north and south and are confident that the popularity of this top end product will spread this side of the Irish Sea as it has throughout the UK.”
