We have now moved to Cheltenham to join our sister company Clearway Doors & Windows at their expanded manufacturing facility in Mackenzie Way. Designex cabinet production will be situated in Unit 6 and our cabinets will be on display at Clearway's showroom opposite at 3 Manor Park Business Centre.
Our cabinets will still be hand made to order or you can buy one of our stock designs. Improved admin and sales support will help to make the whole process of purchasing our display cabinets even better along with a more direct delivery service. Cheltenham is well placed for access to major road networks and a new packaging and loading system will ensure that your cabinet arrives on time and in perfect condition.
Visitors to the showroom will be able to browse in a relaxed environment and can also see cabinets in production. We're looking forward to welcoming customers old and new and will be pleased to have a chat about your requirements over a cup of coffee.
FURTHER EXPANSION FOR CLEARWAY DOORS & WINDOWS
One of Gloucestershire’s most successful door and window companies has doubled its manufacturing facility in Cheltenham, to meet growing demand for its products.
Cheltenham-based Clearway, which celebrates its thirty seventh anniversary this year, fabricates and installs a range of aluminium doors, sash and casement windows, secondary glazing, patio, French and bi-fold doors as well as roof lights and lanterns.
Established in 1983, Clearway Doors and Windows initially focussed on manufacturing and installing their products in the commercial sector. In 2013 the domestic sector represented just five percent of the company’s turnover - seven years later it stands at over 40% - and sales continue to increase in both market areas.
To meet growing demand, Clearway has acquired the lease of a unit adjacent to its existing factory at MacKenzie Way, and increased its manufacturing capacity to 958sq m (10,314 sq ft). The additional space will also enable the eventual relocation of its sister company Designex Cabinets, which offers a range of bespoke display solutions for museums, showrooms, shops and specialist collectors. Clearway’s Managing Director Jeremy Phillips, commented: “The company has grown considerably over the past six years from a staff of 19 to over 30. “Expansion has been necessary to cope with increased demand. For the future, we will continue to invest in staff, customer satisfaction and product development.”
All Clearway’s products offer high levels of safety and security, as well as adding style and helping to reduce energy bills throughout the home and workplace.

Our sister company, CDW Systems, the Gloucester based trade and commercial fabricator has been announced as a finalist in the “Aluminium Company” category at the 2019 Fenestration Awards.
Entering its seventh year the National Fenestration Awards offer a unique alternative to traditional industry awards; instead of judging panels deciding the outcome the NFAs are voted for by those who work within the fenestration industry itself. Mike Davis, Managing Director of CDW Systems commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have been nominated for an award at the NFAs and we thank our industry peers for putting forward our company. Our focus has always been on working with our customers to help them complete high quality projects using our broad range of aluminium doors and windows. An award nomination of this caliber is an unexpected surprise and is testament to the dedication of our talented staff. We couldn’t be more proud.” During the past year notable achievements for CDW Systems include increased sales of the Reynaers CP130 lift & slide patio door as well as the introduction of Sapa: Technal’s Crown flush casement and folding sliding door. Also they now offer fully fabricated Crown and Dualframe Residential Doors with very competitive lead times. CDW, part of the East Manor Group of companies, have also renewed their Secured by Design accreditation and supported door automation specialists Prosale Ltd with their installer training initiative. Voting for the NFAs is now open; to vote for CDW industry professional can visit www.fenistrationawards.co.uk/aluminium-company-2019/ Polling ends of 4th October at 10pm and CDW will find out whether they have been successful during “Winners’ Week” which begins on Monday 7th October. CDW Systems were founded in 1992 and has firmly established itself as one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of high quality aluminium fenestration products. Supplying trade and commercial installation companies across the UK, CDW manufacture aluminium windows, doors, shop fronts, and curtain wall systems from Sapa: Technal, Reynaers, ALUK and Smart Systems.
Allan Little, our Group Production Director, is always up for a challenge, especially if it involves running. In his own words he tells us about his latest venture which has a very personal goal at its heart:
I am running 100K (62 miles) in a day around the Chiltern countryside to raise money for an underfunded charity called Papyrus which is prevention of suicide of young people (under 35’s).
I took up running 8 years ago after suffering from mental health issues which resulted in me considering the unthinkable. You could say running saved my life and since that very first half Marathon, I have run that distance nearly 60 times, ran 5 Full Marathons and completed my first Ultra last year (53 miles).
It’s fair to say, running that distance nearly broke me so typically I needed to take it to the next level but this time with the motivator of giving something back to mental health.
Other than the obvious connections one of the other reasons for choosing Papyrus was because my friend and colleague Nathan Hewett’s brother, Darren Hewett took his own life last year after years of suffering from mental illness. I was honoured to be asked to run in his memory and if he’s watching/listening, you will be the one getting me through the dark times on race day.
I have been training for nearly 4 months having covered nearly 500 miles in all winds and weathers, the race is just days away and the nerves and mind games have kicked in.
Thank you to those that have already donated or shared our media pages, we were looking to raise the adventurous target of £3000 and presently have £1766 in online donations and around £60 in our bucket.
If anyone feels sorry for me or thinks the charity and or Darren is a worthy cause, then feel free to follow the link to help us to help others.
If you have already donated as I know some of you have, then maybe you might pass this on to someone you know who would like to help.
