Supply and install service

Jeld-Wen has launched its Timber Windows Partnership.

Jelod-Wen traditionally supplied its products through builders’ merchants and direct to large house builders. Its main plant in Sheffield manufactures thousands of timber doors per week and its two factories in Melton Mowbray produce an extensive range of standard and made-to-measure windows and stairs.

Danny Hague, UK sales director, said: “The Timber Windows Partnership is all about utilising the skills and expertise of the retail window sector to create new opportunities for our partners and a new route to market for Jeld-Wen.

“We believe there is an appetite for timber because it is a natural and sustainable product. Over the next three years we are looking to partner with retailers across the UK. Offering exclusive area coverage based on local postcodes. Jeld-Wen will offer a full marketing package with samples, point-of-sale material, promotion and website support. This is a new venture in the UK for us and we are looking forward to taking our partners on a journey.”

A recent addition to the Jeld-Wen team is Norman Setra, national sales manager for the Timber Windows Partnership, who was appointed to build a national network.
