CMS Window Systems has been named as one of the top 1000 “Companies to Inspire Britain” in a report by the London Stock Exchange.

London Stock Exchange Group CEO, Xavier Rolet, describes the companies named in the report as the ‘engine of the UK economy’, which help create an ‘antifragile’ SME economy which is more robust, flexible and less prone to boom and bust.

The report recognises CMS as being “inspirational in its success to date and growth potential”. In the past 10 years, CMS has grown from a £1.4 million turnover business to a £35 million company which employs over 245 people. 

The company supports a sustainable business strategy which delivers a range of high performance building envelope solutions. It provides total building envelope packages which upgrade the thermal performance and visual appeal of any building roof height through the installation of external wall insulation (EWI) and cladding solutions.

CMS fabricates its products using the best available components from industry leading supply chain partners including Kawneer, Metal Technology, Sheerframe, Yale and Saint-Gobain.

CMS Managing Director Andy Kerr is a UK winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for 2015. Following CMS’ latest achievement he said: 

“It’s fantastic to be recognised by the London Stock Exchange and feature in their Top 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report. Our rapid growth is testament to the fact that having a truly sustainable business strategy – environmentally, socially and economically – is key to being successful in today’s ultra-competitive market.

“It’s also a reflection of the hard work of our talented workforce, ourselves inspired by the large number of younger workers in our team. By having one of Scotland’s most active Modern Apprenticeships programmes and company-wide development opportunities, we have shaped an extremely capable workforce who constantly offer fresh ideas and keep us at the top of our game.”
