Fourth birthday

A Black Country double glazing specialist is celebrating its fourth birthday after doubling sales over the last 12 months.

Gold Oak Windows has seen turnover rise to £350,000 after winning a string of new residential and commercial contracts from across the West Midlands.

The family-run company, which has a wide selection of high-quality doors and windows, is also the Official Checkatrade Trophy Tradesperson for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

As part of its expansion, the firm has created three new jobs with a new fitting team and invested in a dedicated storage facility in Lower Gornal.

Owner Ian Palmer said: “I’ve been working in the double glazing sector since leaving school 20 years ago, learning the trade with my dad before deciding to go on my own in 2015.

“What I was always taught was the importance of attention to detail and making sure you deliver exactly what the customer is looking for, and that’s two of the main reasons we have had such a successful year.

“Our industry has a reputation for poor customer service and that’s something I wanted to put right with Gold Oak. I think we are doing this, reflected in the number of referrals we have from residential, commercial and industrial clients.”
