The success of the company in its first decade has been down to hard work, constant improvements, developing teamwork and not being frightened of change. We have achieved all this by continuous investment in new machinery and staff and the introduction of training programmes for all aspects of production and administration.
(PRWEB) August 3, 2007
Windowstyle, the manufacturing arm of the Style Group, the UK's leading independent replacement PVCu window and door retailer, is celebrating its first 10 years by rewarding 92 members of staff who have been with the company since inception.
To celebrate the decade of success the company is hosting a number of special lunches for 92 of its employees who have been with the company from the start. Each will be awarded with a unique inscribed pen, certificate and champagne to highlight their long service and loyalty.
The company has its factory at Wombwell, near Barnsley in South Yorkshire and with a staff of almost 600, is the biggest single employer in the area. Initially it had just one PVCu production line and one delivery truck, but in the 10 years to follow, and with over £5m worth of investment, it has shown dramatic and consistent growth. Today the factory is 135,000 sq ft and produces more than 6,000 window and door frames every week from high technology production lines and equipment. The site also includes its own specialised glass toughening unit.
The factory produces all the windows and door sold by its fellow subsidiary, Safestyle UK, whose celebrity-led award-winning marketing campaigns have become popular and renowned in the world of television and radio advertising.
Nick Lilburn, the Managing Director of Windowstyle, explained: "The success of the company in its first decade has been down to hard work, constant improvements, developing teamwork and not being frightened of change. We have achieved all this by continuous investment in new machinery and staff and the introduction of training programmes for all aspects of production and administration."
He added: "Our future is bright and we will ensure the next 10 years at Windowstyle will see further expansion and improvements to meet the rise and demands of the Group as the leader in its highly competitive marketplace."
