New production manager

Kingfisher uPVC Windows and Doors of Drighlington, Leeds, has appointed Glenn Trevelyan as its new production manager.

Glenn, 49, has more than 30 years in the window industry having joined his previous company back in 1986 straight from school.

Roles since include trade sales representative, order processing manager, and production planning manager, eventually achieving operations director status in 2005 where he stayed for four years.

Following the crash of 2009 he was one of the few directors to be retained by that company, taking on the role of systems manager. 

Kingfisher Windows’ managing director, Neil Webster said: “Filling this role of production manager with Kingfisher has been very difficult as we were looking for someone who could not only drive change within the operations side of the business, but could help develop the team at senior management level. To do this, they needed a solid understanding of the trade, commercial and domestic customer and how their demands impact directly on production at operational level.

“This knowledge is obviously something that Glenn has developed over the years.

“However, the fact that he brings with him additional skills that are production planning and IT led will enable us to quickly develop and extend the capabilities of our existing production software to all areas of the business.”
