Only a few months before his thirtieth anniversary with the business, Callum Grant has been appointed as Norscot’s new Managing Director. Callum takes the dual role of Managing and Commercial Director with the North of Scotland’s largest manufacturer of kit homes, windows and doors.
Callum, who is currently the Commercial Director, joined Norscot in 1988 in a sales position, before being appointed to the board in 1992. Outgoing Managing Director and Co-Founder of the business, Peter Body, takes the role of Chairman.
Peter says: “Callum has always demonstrated a strong desire to see the business succeed and serve the community in which we work. He is well respected within the business, the industry and beyond. He is the right man to take Norscot forwards as we look to continue our growth.”
Norscot generates around £4 million a year and has a 60-member strong team. With a number of new projects, it aims to double sales over the next five years. It is a manufacturer of PVCu, timber and aluminium clad timber windows and doors, as well as timber-framed kit homes.
Callum will take the joint role of Managing and Commercial Director from 1 October. “I’m extremely excited about Norscot’s future prospects,” says Callum. “I relish the opportunity to take a lead in the next phase of its development. It’s an exciting time for the business and I look forward to continuing Peter and the team’s great work, to help continue Norscot’s growth.”
Within the Norscot group, there are four divisions, Norscot Windows & Doors, Norscot Kit Homes, Cottage Kit Homes and AluWood Windows.
