David Ritchie - CMS Chief Executive, Stuart Glen - CMS Factory Manager & Depute Provost Collette Stevenson raise a toast to the success of the new factory at the official opening event at the CMS Trade Factory in East Kilbride on 30th April 2019.

A comprehensive new range of high quality PVCu windows and doors tailored exclusively to the needs of the trade market in Scotland is now available with the launch of CMS Trade.

A dedicated new division of CMS Window Systems, one of Scotland’s leading designers, manufacturers and installers of windows, doors and curtain walling, CMS Trade is operating from a new 25,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art factory in East Kilbride to the south of Glasgow. Leading CMS Trade are some familiar figures from the window and door industry in Scotland; Colin Torley (General Manager) and Stuart Glen (Factory Manager,) both of whom have over 35 years industry experience.

Ideally located to serve the central belt, as well as Scotland as a whole, this new manufacturing facility offers a wide PVCu window and door portfolio based on the Eurocell and REHAU profile systems. It provides a complete solution for residential new builds or replacement projects, large or small enabling small builders and installers to work with a local manufacturer of a full range of windows and door products, all delivered free within 25 miles of East Kilbride in a five day turnaround (and just 24 hours on re-males).

CMS Trade will enable trade customers to benefit from CMS’ manufacturing expertise, which has been the key to its rapid growth in becoming one of Scotland’s largest window and door manufacturers in just over thirteen years. The senior team’s 150+ years of collective manufacturing experience enables CMS to offer outstanding quality windows and doors, which have maximum visual appeal with fine detailing, such as a very fine 0.2mm joint for a virtually seamless finish.

Working with CMS Trade will also help customers to reduce their landfill waste costs and improve their environmental credentials through its free recycling service. CMS Trade will take trade customers’ old windows and doors, removed during replacement projects, for separation and recycling in the same ways it does for all its social housing and commercial contracts.

David Ritchie, CEO of CMS Window Systems said: “Creating a dedicated factory for CMS Trade has enabled us to develop a product range and service geared to the specific needs of trade window and door customers. It’s a fresh new approach that we think is a win-win for trade customers – great quality products, competitively priced and delivered in the shortest lead times, plus the opportunity to cut waste disposal costs.”

CMS Window Systems is one of the UK’s leading window, door and curtain walling manufacturers and installers, employing more than 290 people at its manufacturing and recycling sites at Cumbernauld near Glasgow and Kirkcaldy, Fife. As an established major supply chain partner to commercial developers, the education sector, local authorities, housing associations and housebuilders, CMS provides a range of aluminium and PVCu systems for every kind of new build or refurbishment project, all manufactured in Scotland to the highest standards in the most resource-efficient, sustainable factories.
