CMS Window Systems has made a substantial investment at its main Castlecary factory near Glasgow to increase its operational capacity and create a solid platform to service its growing trade and domestic windows and doors market.
The company, which is one of Scotland’s largest window, door and curtain walling designers, fabricators and installers, has commissioned and installed two new state-of-the-art Stuga ZX5 PVC cutting & prepping machining centres, doubling the overall number to four, as part of a planned programme of expansion to increase capacity.
CMS, which is already a market-leader in the Scottish social housing and new build markets, is experiencing growing demand from trade customers who value high quality products, with excellent green credentials, backed with the confidence of buying from a reliable supply chain partner. The CMS brand has become synonymous with energy efficient, sustainably manufactured products, from a company renowned for having industry-leading closed-loop recycling processes which have seen it win numerous awards nationally and internationally – including a 2017 Queen’s Award for Enterprise and an International Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice 2017.
In addition to boosting its capacity to produce more windows and doors than ever, the company is establishing a select network of approved retail and trade partners across Scotland. These partners will ensure all customers have a local point of contact who can provide advice and support to ensure the best possible window and door solutions are delivered.
Andy Kerr, Managing Director of CMS Window Systems, says, “We’ve always ensured that our manufacturing processes keep pace with customer demands for outstanding quality windows and doors in short lead times. Our latest investment programme is another step on this path, allowing us to further improve our operational efficiency and capacity, which we know is particularly important as we see rapid growth in our trade and retail customer base.”
CMS Window Systems is one of Scotland’s fastest growing manufacturing businesses. Employing more than 250 people at its 15-acre main manufacturing and recycling facility and HQ in Cumbernauld, together with its branch in Kirkcaldy, the company offers social housing providers, housebuilders, developers, approved retailers, approved trade outlets and main contractors a range of high performance windows, doors and curtain walling solutions designed to maximise energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and deliver comfort for householders and building users.
