Edgetech: “We were delighted to be involved in such a fantastic, forward-thinking project. Pair Super Spacer’s exceptional energy efficiency with an ingeniously-designed, sustainably-constructed landmark like HoHo Wien, and you’ve got a template for the architecture of the future”. comments Managing Director Chris Alderson.

CMS Window Systems: “Forth Valley College’s Falkirk campus is an outstanding educational facility and we are delighted to have been appointed to handle the glazing package. Our design, manufacturing and installation capabilities and resources are ideally suited to large scale new build public projects of this kind”said: Stephen Anderson, Façade Director

DOORCO: “The next steps for me are to empower the team to take responsibility and be able to make the decisions that increase volumes, add new products and allow the business to continue to grow. Each team leader will be fully autonomous in their own area”. Mark Towers, Senior Production and Technical Manager

Thermoseal Group: “When you consider the worldwide spacer bar market is in excess of a billion meters of spacer per year, there is enough demand that spacer bar manufacturers will really need to raise their game to meet the volumes required by the market. You may have seen our announcement that we have purchased a new 2-acre production site in Wigan”. Sales Director Mark Hickox

Epwin Window Systems: “Most aluminium systems use dummy sashes, couplers or reverse adaptors to ensure the windows can be internally glazed. This can detract from the overall appearance of the window and uses more resources to achieve.” explains Marketing Manager Gerald Allen.

Glazerite UK Group: “Our success not only depends on our people and that of our installer partners, but the suppliers we work with. We’re extremely fortunate to have partnered with industry leaders like the VEKA UK Group from the beginning, and still fabricate high quality products from them to this day”. Group Managing Director, Jason Thompson.

Leka Systems: have reported a 30% year on year sales growth “The demand for our Leka roofs has been superb as more fabricators and installers see for themselves the benefits these products can deliver.” Said Rhys Hoddinott, director

Which Way To The Exit

A Case Study - Chris Ball

MBA sees many different companies; companies of all sizes and for many reasons. Particularly challenging is the small company, often family lead where the principal has reached the point in his career where he feels he would like, or indeed needs, to exit the business. The issues illustrated by the following case study are not untypical and demonstrate that there is an alternative to ‘putting the keys back through the letterbox’

The Case of W Windows Ltd.

W was a small fabricator, selling to the trade and to retail, with an annual turnover of £2.5m. Business was consistent having been established over many years through much hard work. A single individual, under whom there was no real management structure, systems or processes, drove the company forward through, painfully gained, experience and force of personality. For years, the company provided an extravagant living for the principle’s family. As a result, there was little reinvestment in the company and its infrastructure, the business was run for the benefit of the shareholders and there was no ambition to build a business of real substance. Some time back, the principle fell seriously ill. Consequently, he was unable to manage the business on a day to day basis. As a result, sales collapsed, debtor balances soared and wastage gripped the business. ...[more}
