About the employer

We are changing the industry; we question traditional methods and challenge the possibilities within architectural aluminium and glazing. With over 100 years combined experience in design alone, we are confident in the standard of work produced from every avenue of the company. We are in the business to provide the best service, the best product, with zero defects.

We aim to provide people with opportunity – young or old. As a company, we are programmed towards growing and developing our own people. We like to offer career opportunities instilling confidence in people and giving them the chance to develop themselves professionally.

From the design office to the factory floor each employee is fully aware that our aim is to finish the contract to a very high standard so that the finished job looks ‘as it should’ to the professional eye.

As we are a relatively young company, without doubt, our long-term aim is to build a successful brand that stays grounded. We know where we come from, the surrounding North East is part of our heritage. An arrogance will never creep into our ways. We will always look at a project with a critical eye and improve from there.
