Motherwell-based PVC-U window and door fabricators Walker Profiles is looking forward to a bright new future, following new additions to its portfolio and major investments in equipment and technology, including products from REHAU.
This will see the company challenge for a spot among the top players in the Scottish windows industry.
The expansion of the REHAU product portfolio will ensure Walker Profiles remains competitive in a rapidly changing market.
This expansion includes a full range of coloured PVC-U options on its casement, tilt and turn and top swing reversible windows, plus a new range of patio doors and Secured by Design composite doors (including fire doors).
Established in 2000, Walker Profiles has recently appointed new owners and a fresh senior management team, who’s objective it is to drive the business onwards and upwards.
With a collective experience of over 80 years, the management team has already commenced the company’s plans for growth with an investment in new welding and reinforcing stations at Walker Profile’s Motherwell production facility.
To further enhance its product delivery, Walker Profiles has modernised its production control functions, and introduced lean principles to guarantee every high-quality product order is completed on time and in its entirety.
The company has also refreshed all its accreditations, including ISO 9001, PAS24, Secured by Design and CHAS accreditations, so customers can be rest assured the windows and doors they buy from Walker Profiles meet all the latest industry standards.
All Walker Profiles PVC-U products are available on a supply only, supply and first fit or supply and full fit basis to maximise flexibility for its customers.
As well as improvements to its product offer, Walker Profiles has also committed funds to boosting its customer service offer, with an upgraded IT system including a new enquiry management system that will guarantee customers receive the best technical advice and support in an accessible, timely way.
Dave MacGregor, Business Development Manager, commented: “It’s a really exciting time to be at Walker Profiles, with big investments in our product offer, our manufacturing facilities and our support systems to deliver a more diverse portfolio of higher quality windows and doors to our customers in Scotland.
“And it’s all backed up with a more attentive customer service. The new investment and renewed drive from the management team is taking our products and service to the next level and we are confident that our clients will be very pleased with the improvements we are making.”
Hormoz Nouri, Sales Manager at REHAU, said: “We’ve worked with Walker Profiles for many years and are delighted to see the changes they have made to increase their market share in Scotland.
“They are capitalising on the latest trends – like colour PVC-U windows and large span patio doors – and taking steps to enhance the quality of the products fabricated so that customers get the windows and doors they want at the standard they demand.
“Like REHAU, Walker Profiles are driven to strive for better, and we applaud those values in our trusted partners.”
