Social housing success

CMS Window Systems has secured a place on Scotland’s public sector procurement framework, the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA).

The company demonstrated compliance with technical, quality, supply chain management and customer service criteria set out by the SPA.

Backed by UK procurement body, LHC, the SPA chooses only the best suppliers to join its frameworks. This enables the SPA to provide public sector clients with assurance in terms of price competitiveness, procurement efficiency, legislative compliance, access to project data, deliveries, and service levels according to CMS.

The company is already a preferred supplier on Scotland Excel’s framework for replacement windows and doors, and it is a long-term fenestration partner to some of the UK’s largest social housing providers, including Fife Council, North Lanarkshire Council and East Dunbartonshire Council.

Chris McGinn, senior client support manager at Scottish Procurement Alliance, said: “The standards for becoming a SPA appointed company are set high, which ensures our partners get the best. We are delighted that CMS Window Systems has been appointed to our new WD1 windows and doors framework and we are looking forward to working with them on future projects.”

David Ritchie, chief executive officer at CMS Window Systems, said: “It is another important step on our path to growth following a record financial year in 2017-18 and the opening of our new door manufacturing facility in Fife.”
