Gloucester-based specialist aluminium window and door supplier, CDW Systems, recently teamed up with Black Millwork to supply products for a show home at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon.

Black Millwork is a major supplier of wooden windows and doors to new build and refurbishment projects across the UK. They specialise in American timber windows, but their extensive range also includes innovative products such as including aluminium-clad timber windows and doors.

The company currently has a number of permanent displays at the centre in Swindon. Amongst these, a Reynaers CP130 lift and Slide aluminium patio door can be found in its own exhibition – a product supplied to Black Millwork by CDW Systems to demonstrate how timber and aluminium can work together.

“We chose to team up with CDW for several reasons,” says Black Millwork’s Managing Director, Gary Hutton.

“We were looking to partner with a firm that offered a varied and comprehensive range of aluminium products and that shared our commitment to high-quality work – CDW fitted this description.”

“At the moment, there is a growing trend for homes combining aluminium and timber products. For example, an increasing number of period property owners are investing in timber windows for the front of their house – retaining the house’s character – whilst installing aluminium doors on the back of their house to achieve a modern aesthetic and good outlook on to the garden.

“Moving forward, we see CDW as the perfect partner to help us achieve a greater share of the aluminium market.”

CDW Systems was formed in 1992 and has seen exponential growth over the last few years. In 2017, the company hit a record £10m turnover, underwent a management buyout, and intends to continue its expansion in 2018 by seeking out an additional factory space.
