Arden Windows ‘set for growth’ with new Managing Director
West Midlands based Arden Windows, one of the UK’s leading suppliers and installers of bespoke timber windows and doors, has announced its intentions to increase sales and maximise its brand awareness in 2021.
A Secured by Design member company, Arden Windows has also prioritised the need to continue to manufacture the most innovative and highest quality products as well as put customers first.
Managing Director John Sidebottom was appointed to the top job during a senior management restructure last October having been Commercial Director, and previously Sales and Marketing Director, since joining the company in December 2018.
Prior to joining Arden Windows, John had worked in senior positions at Crittall Windows and NorDan UK, where he enjoyed considerable successes in sales, operations and project management.
With over 20 years’ experience in the fenestration industry, John said he is looking forward to his first full year at the helm of Arden Windows, a family-owned business, which has operated from its manufacturing unit in Coventry for more than 30 years.
“These are very exciting and also very challenging times for Arden Windows – and indeed the whole of the fenestration industry,” he said.
“We are keen to build on the successes and significant internal improvements of the last two years and are well-placed to reinvigorate sales and build our brand.
“We utilise advanced manufacturing techniques and equipment to deliver competitive and market leading products in precision engineered softwoods and hardwoods and offer an extensive range encompassing both traditional and modern contemporary window styles.
“Without doubt, we have some of the best timber products in the marketplace and we are one of the most innovative and solution-led bespoke manufacturers and installers of premium quality and high-performance timber windows and doors in the UK.”
John explained that the company is a volume provider to main contractors, high-end developers, local authorities and housing associations, new build, replacement and heritage marketplaces.
He added: “Alongside this we will bring our employees with us, working alongside and supporting them to fulfil their potential, embedding the best of traditional family business values inherent throughout all levels at Arden Windows.”
Other management changes in the Autumn restructure included the appointment of Jim Hawthorne as Production Director, having built up 24 years’ experience as an employee with Arden Windows.
The company renewed its membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative, during December 2020. It has five doors and four windows – all of them certified to the PAS 24:2016 security standard – that have been recognised by the Police Service for having achieved Police Preferred Specification.
