Steve Bell & Kevin Stephenson, formally the owners of National Window Systems, decided to part ways in 2017, after an unsuccessful merger with the Fabrication company based in Leeds. They have now set up Westend Windows and have just opened their doors to their new Showroom, Trade Counter and offices.
Of the decision, Steve Bell said, “We wanted to ensure we could continue to only offer the best quality products and at fair prices and remain consistent with our values that we have maintained for over 30 years. This has meant that we can give our customers the quality and service they expect”.
Kevin Stephenson said, “To see the new business that Steve and I set up starting to thrive is fantastic. We are excited with the opening of our new Showroom and Trade Counter and welcome some familiar faces that we’ve worked with over the last 30 years in Darlington and surrounding areas”.
Working with them is another well-known face, Bob Donoghue in Sales, who’s also worked in the industry for almost 40 years. Also joining the team is Steve’s son, Joseph Bell in Installations. Speaking about his role, Bob said, “Giving customers fair quotations is so important, and transparency is everything. We don’t believe in hard sales or inflating costs for discounts. We’re honest with every step of our service and always ensure our customers are happy”.
Westend Windows prides itself on providing a high standard of service and quality products to its customers, many of which have trusted Steve and Kevin for many years. Kevin adds, “We are proud of our reputation in the local area, which is emphasised by our strong customer base. We are looking forward to seeing this grow further with the launch of the new showroom and trade counter.”
The company, based at Unit 40, Flexspace, Lingfield Way in Darlington, is an installer of windows, doors, bi-folds, roofs and conservatories, including the impressive Residence Collection of flush sash timber alternative products. They are open to the public and trade for installation services as well as supply only for local builders and joiners.
