CMS Window Systems strengthens team with new Chairman

  • 4 Sep 2019

CMS Window Systems has announced the appointment of a new Chairman, adding significant building product manufacturing and supply expertise to the team.

One of Scotland’s largest designers, CMS manufacturers and installers of windows & doors and aluminium facades, serving social housing providers, housebuilders, commercial developers and trade installers.

Louis brings three decades of director-level experience to CMS, having most recently been CEO at Tyman plc, owner of the ERA door and window hardware brand, and he continues to be a Non-Executive Director of Ibstock plc. His strong track record in the building products market includes senior roles with some of the industry’s most highly respected brands, including Kingspan, Baxi, Lafarge and Mira.

The Chairman’s appointment is another important step for CMS as it targets growth of more than 25% in this financial year. The expansion of its aluminium façade division fuelled by new contract wins UK-wide, and new supply relationships with social housing and housebuilding sector clients across Scotland and the north of England, look set to drive this growth, along with the evolving CMS Trade division serving Scotland’s trade installers.

Louis Eperjesi commented on the appointment: “The growth of CMS to become one of Scotland’s most successful manufacturing businesses of its kind in the space of just 13 years has been extremely impressive and shows that ambition and drive underpin everything at CMS. I am looking forward to being able to make my contribution to the exciting future that lies ahead for the business, as customers in the building and housing markets increasingly seek supply chain partners who are serious about sustainability, quality and innovation.”

David Ritchie, CEO at CMS Window Systems added: “We are delighted to welcome Louis as Chairman and the significant building product manufacture and supply experience he brings. His strong commercial, marketing and product background will be invaluable as we push forward with our expansion UK-wide and build on our success through our capacity to handle larger-scale commercial projects and further supply and install contracts in social housing and new build.”
