JIM Walker has been appointed general manager at trade window and door fabricator CMS Trade.

With more than 15 years’ experience in the manufacture and installation of PVCu windows and doors, Jim is well known within the Scottish fenestration sector. He will be tasked with playing a key role in the East Kilbride-based firm’s growth plans.

CMS Trade manufactures around 700 PVCu units every week with capacity to grow. Part of the CMS Group, the company offers a full range of PVCu window and door styles, manufactured using REHAU or Eurocell systems, backed with a free recycling service for installers so they can dispose of their extracted, post-use windows and doors safely and in an environmentally responsible way.

Jim said, “CMS Trade has been a breath of fresh air in the trade window and door market, so it is really exciting to become part of a team that has achieved so much in just 12 months. With the diverse product portfolio, technical expertise available within the CMS Group and recycling service, CMS Trade is uniquely positioned to offer window and door installers a package that’s of real value and one that will help them thrive in a competitive market.”

David Ritchie, CEO of CMS Group added, “We are delighted to welcome Jim to CMS Trade and look forward to supporting him and his team as the business develops. His technical knowledge and thorough understanding of what installers are looking for from their window and door supplier will be invaluable in strengthening our relationships with customers and supply chain partners alike.”
