About Willis Systems

History

Willis Systems started as a laminate fabricator in 1990 manufacturing panels, vanity units and worktops and specialising in postformed laminate edges popular at the time.

The business developed over the next two decades to include the manufacture, supply and installation of wide range of washroom products to the commercial, healthcare, education and retail markets.

Standard off the shelf products were produced as well as bespoke washroom systems with option to pre plumb sanitaryware, such as Armitage Shanks, to a modular IPS panel system at the factory in Cardiff.

In 2010 Willis Systems was incorporated into Borley Laminates Ltd where significant investment into the factory saw year on year growth to become one of the leading Washroom Systems manufacturer in the UK.

Team Willis

With our dedicated team we continue to strive forward committed to developing new products in both traditional laminates and solid surfaces and continue to offer fine detailing allowing Architects and designers the opportunity to put their unique stamp on a building.

The management is always open to new ideas from the workforce and welcome and encourage all employees to provide valuable feedback and initiatives.

Manufacturing 

To meet changing trends and fashions, we have invested in some of the most up-to-date machinery technology from Homag – through feed CNC processing centre, computer operated beam saws and edgebanders with PUR and laser edging. We have also introduced a thermoforming capability to the company and purchased from Global Vacuum Presses the latest duo oven and vacuum press.

We encourage clients to visit our factory and see the latest fabrication techniques used on a wide range of materials, including acrylic mirror panels, translucent surfaces and solid surfaces. We would be happy to demonstrate the thermoforming process, using Hi Macs Ultra material, which enables bespoke forming of solid surface shapes and forms limited only to your imagination.

Solid Surface in Washrooms

Changing Trends

Architects and clients in last decade have demanded durability and sustainability when specifying products for the washroom environment. Solid Surface material such as Corian and Hi Macs are now in common use and compact laminates, formerly used in areas of high abuse, are now in colours and finishes that are much more aesthetically pleasing in an office or retail washroom environment. Recent innovations to the market have included the highly thermoforming Hi Macs Ultra and the Meganite Movement Series which offers a highly convincing stone finish.

Training 

In order to get the best from our new technology Willis Systems’ team includes highly skilled CAD designers working with, and linked into, highly trained CAD operators. Our commitment to ongoing training and re-training of all members of our workforce means that we continue to stay ahead of the game, not allowing complacency to set in.

All of our on-site contract managers, foreman and trained fitters are highly motivated to ensure the very best installation service. They also maintain relevant CSCS cards in order to adhere to current safety measures.
