About the employer

HWL is a leading manufacturer of windows and doors, specialising in the fabrication of the Residence Collection. Additionally, we can supply Residence unglazed – made possible through our pioneering application of Timberweld® welding technologies. Allowing us to deliver a traditional 90° butt-weld inside and out, creating an authentic timber joint but in a far stronger, welded window. This eliminates the requirement to glass bond the frame, simplifying and lowering the cost of installation and remedial work without compromising on strength or performance. We work with installers, supplying retail and home improvement markets, as well as developers. We also work as a specialist supplier of products to other fabrication businesses who don’t want to disrupt their core production to manufacture a non-core product.
