NARM welcomes Birmingham-based new member to its ranks

  • 10 Jun 2022

Howells Patent Glazing is the latest company to join the ranks of NARM, the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers.

This takes the association’s membership to seventeen active, quality-focussed businesses – further increasing its influence as the united voice of the UK’s rooflight industry.

Based in Cradley Heath, Birmingham, Howells Patent Glazing is a major UK glazing supplier and installer, serving businesses and homeowners over the past 45 years.

The company’s decision to apply for membership came following a visit by Howells Contracts Manager Dave Bennett, to the recent NARM Annual General Meeting.


Dave comments: “We’ve been aware of NARM’s work and support for the industry for some time and I was happy to accept their invitation to attend the recent meeting as a guest.

“Our subsequent decision to apply for membership was taken at a recent board meeting. We’re delighted to have met NARM’s membership criteria and look forward to engaging with NARM’s activities in supporting best practice in the industry as a whole.”

Howells’ expertise and product portfolio complements NARM’s membership profile, which includes manufacturers and suppliers of flat glass rooflights, aluminium pitched rooflights, glazed canopies and patent glazing systems.


The Association is very active in pursuing its goals

 – provide an authoritative united voice for the rooflight industry
 – develop and maintain standards and codes of practice
 – provide effective and objective information and advice for specifiers and building owners
 – contribute to and influence legislation relative to the provision of natural light

As a member organisation of CPA (Construction Products Association) and Eurolux, the European trade association for rooflight manufacturers, NARM is well connected and has played an important part in establishing classification for rooflights under UK Building Regulations.

Ian Weakford, NARM Director, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Howells Patent Glazing to NARM and we look forward to working together with them to achieve our common goals.”
