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.
