About the employer

By perfecting manufacturing processes, investing heavily in our operations and training our fabrication to manufacture aluminium glazing products with skill and precision, we became a leader in the market, transforming how the trade buys aluminium windows and doors.

The first step was to make buying aluminium glazing as straightforward and simple as buying PVCu. Aluminium offered more opportunities for installers - it wasn’t a saturated market and it offered higher profit margins.

Historically, buying aluminium windows and doors had been a bad experience for installers, with high-levels of remakes and long lead times. We transformed this by delivering aluminium bi-fold doors in one week unglazed, two weeks glazed.
