New technical manager

Gowercroft Joinery has appointed a new technical manager to drive its programme of new product development and innovation.

Gary Chatwood is joining the company with over forty years of experience in the timber fenestration, conservatory and home improvement market.

Previously production and design manager at several leading Yorkshire timber and composite window and door companies, he has extensive knowledge of all aspects of production from design and specification through manufacturing operations to installation and after sales service.

Gary has a proven track record in bringing new fenestration products and conservatory roofing systems to the market and was instrumental in developing a timber box sash window, which won a national Joinery Product of the Year award.

“I have always worked for companies that have led the way in this highly competitive industry and so I am really thrilled to be joining Gowercroft Joinery, who have a fantastic reputation for breaking new ground and developing markets for their trailblazing products,” Gary said.

Gary will also be reviewing and refining existing manufacturing operations and developing new control methods and monitoring systems in order to achieve the production efficiencies required to keep pace with increasing sales.
