CDW Systems is rounding off a successful 2016 having achieved record sales volumes of its aluminium products.
The company recently celebrated a record year of trading, which saw group turnover increase by 19% on the same period last year and the company are on course to hit a turnover of £10m for the first time in its history.
CDW’s record year follows year on year growth at the company, which has been operating for twenty-four years, manufacturing and supplying a wide range of windows, doors and curtain walling using some of the leading aluminium profile systems on the market.
Coinciding with CDW’s record sales is the appointment of a new Managing Director, Mike Davis.
Mike has worked as CDW Systems for 11 years, where he joined as Sales Administration Manager before rising through the ranks to become a Director. He takes over from Jerry Webb, who becomes Group Chairman.
Commenting on CDW’s record year, Mike said: “2016 has been a turbulent year for the UK economy, but we have had much to celebrate. Our growth is down to our customers’ order books increasing for aluminium windows and doors, including continuing demand for this material in the domestic market.
“We believe there are plenty of opportunities for aluminium in both the domestic and commercial markets and we are bringing new products to market in 2017 to help installers capitalise on these opportunities.”
CDW is adding Reynaers aluminium lift and slide patio door sets to its product portfolio. These are premium systems designed to help installers win increased business at the top-end of the entrance door market.
The company is also expanding its Gloucester-based factory and company headquarters to accommodate production of these products.
The business also introduced a second shift, which has increased operating hours to 16 hours a day, and appointed ten new manufacturing specialists, allowing CDW to supply higher volumes of quality aluminium products on quick lead times.
“Our record sales is testament to our significant investments in both the business and our products over recent months and we aim to continue investing to ensure both we and our customers remain at the forefront of a flourishing aluminium market,” concludes Mike.
