Clear view of business growth

Stuart Judge, who has more than 25 years’ experience in the construction products market, is the new managing director of Fusion Windows and Doors.

Fusion, which manufactures aluminium windows and doors, was recently acquired for an undisclosed sum by Key Land Capital’s investments division in a deal that could see turnover increase by more than 100% in the next two years alone.

Stuart is the former managing director of Crittall Windows. His career has included spells at Everest, where he was commercial director, and Mumford and Wood.

Stuart said: “Key Land has aspirations to take the business and use it as a catalyst to create something bigger and brighter. That is a wonderful opportunity and something I am excited to be involved in.

“The company is in a strong position to take advantage of a buoyant commercial and residential property market with its wide range of aluminium door and window products. We’re going to reshape and reorganise the business, and then look to grow a portfolio of businesses in fenestration, windows and doors – the common theme being glass.”

Key Land Capital director Alex Sutherland said: “We have identified Fusion as offering a business which offers great opportunities to grow. It complements our own property development business, and we plan to use Fusion products on some of our projects.

“However, we also believe there is a strong demand for these products at commercial and residential developments right across the UK and it is this relatively untapped market that we intend to target.”

The current annual turnover of £750,000 could be increased to £2 million in the next two years, and over £5 million in three to five years, Alex said.
