Guttercrest Add ABP Building Products (Alifabs) to Range

Guttercrest have further strengthened their range by obtaining ABP’s unique aluminium coping, guttering and downpipe products, universally known as Alifabs.

Guttercrest accepted the opportunity to expand their portfolio after ABP directors decided to concentrate on other interests after their property lease came to an end. Both firms have an established reputation for expert design and technical expertise, with a product synergy that makes the merger of the lines a seamless one.

Alifabs, founded in 1957, started life supplying aluminium building products and lightweight structures to the construction industry. After specialising in copings, their architectural coping system gained the approval of the British Board of Agrément (BBA). As a result Guttercrest now boast the only BBA tested and certified coping system.

Guttercrest already manufacture over 40 different standard types of aluminium gutters, downpipes, fascias, soffits and wall copings. The addition of ABP’s product lines will also include the Ali-fabs G146 and G55 guttering with complementary downpipe system and the Ali-fabs Clickfix coping.

These products will increase Guttercrest’s plans for growth after a £5m investment in a new 40,000 sq ft facility in Shropshire in 2016. The new site complements the existing 26,000 sq ft site, both of which have been fitted with state-of-the-art technology to streamline processes, reduce lead time, and increase stock availability.

Gary Power, Director at Guttercrest, commented: “ABP and Guttercrest held talks about Guttercrest taking over the ABP/Alifabs product lines. Alifabs copings and rainwater systems are a highly respected brand in our industry, so we’re very pleased that they chose us to carry their products into the future, and further enhance Guttercrest’s existing range.”
