  • 30 Jul 2020

Fast-growing trade window and door fabricator CMS Trade has strengthened its team, courtesy of the appointment of Jim Walker as its new general manager.

With over 15 years of experience in the manufacture and installation of PVCu windows and doors, Jim is well-known within the Scottish fenestration sector.

In taking up the position of general manager, Jim will be instrumental in CMS Trade’s growth plans, ensuring the company’s developing reputation for quality REHAU and Eurocell products – supported by first-class customer service – is maintained as the East Kilbride based business grows.

Jim joins an experienced and skilled team at CMS Trade, a company which has grown tremendously in its first 12 months of operation and now comfortably manufactures approximately 700 PVCu units every week, with capacity to grow.

Part of the CMS Group, the company offers a full range of PVCu window and door styles, manufactured using REHAU or Eurocell systems, backed with a free recycling service for installers, meaning they can dispose of their extracted, post-use windows and doors safely and in an environmentally responsible way.

Jim commented: “CMS Trade has been a breath of fresh air in the trade window and door market, so it is really exciting to become part of a team that has achieved so much in just 12 months.

“With the diverse product portfolio, technical expertise available within the CMS Group and recycling service, CMS Trade is uniquely positioned to offer window and door installers a package that’s of real value and one that will help them thrive in a competitive market.”

David Ritchie, CEO of CMS Group, added: “We are delighted to welcome Jim to CMS Trade and look forward to supporting him and his team as the business develops.

“His technical knowledge and thorough understanding of what installers are looking for from their window and door supplier will be invaluable in strengthening our relationships with customers and supply chain partners alike.”

CMS Trade manufactures made-to-order PVCu windows and doors, as well as providing composite doors, for installers customers.

It is part of the CMS Group, a leading building envelope provider, which incorporates CMS Façades, an aluminium façade specialist and CMS Window Systems, a major manufacturer and installer of PVCu windows and doors in the social housing and housebuilding sectors.
