Vision to Value: CMS seizes window of opportunity

CMS Window Systems is unique in the window and door industry for demonstrating how environmental, social and economic sustainability can underpin a successful manufacturing business.

Strong partnerships with key local authority, housing association, main contractor, specifier, house builder, trade and retail partner clients are key to the success of the Cumbernauld-based firm, ensuring sustainable growth is underpinned by its core values of continual improvement, commitment, teamwork and integrity.

From inception in 2006 to a turnover of £35m took just over a decade and in May 2016 investment from LDC was raised to help meet future growth ambitions.

“The timing of the investment couldn't have been better” says Managing Director Andy Kerr. “With the new board and senior management team's expertise complementing the experience we already had within the company, we have rapidly benefitted from the new ideas generated.

“One of our key areas of growth is the expansion of our trade offering, a very exciting opportunity, which is driving us towards becoming one of the largest manufacturers within our sector in the UK.”

Turnover this year will exceed £35m and growth plans include expanding the geographical reach of CMS' PVC division, allowing it to follow the example of the company's aluminium division and operate UK wide.
