Design Windows Group Expands North

South Islands leading window fabricator to open new factory in Auckland

Auckland— 2 June 2014 Design Windows Group is expanding into the booming Auckland housing market with a planned new state of the art factory and showroom to supply windows in the Altherm and Smart Wood window range. Managing Director Jason Everett has joined forces with former PlaceMakers CEO, John Beveridge, and has already begun trading in South Auckland while the new factory is completed in early August. This is the first of several new factories to be located in the North Island, which will use proven systems and scale from the 4 South Island Design Window factories.

“The Auckland market is very buoyant and in need of new factory capacity to service the growing demands,” said Jason Everett, Managing Director at Design Windows. “Our factory system is highly automated and capable of producing windows for 500 houses per annum as well as commercial work. We have a high level of confidence in the Auckland housing market over the next 10 years which has encouraged us to make the investment and become a national window player” John Beveridge joins Design Windows as a shareholder and director and brings wide experience and networks from a long career at Fletcher Building “Design Windows operating system has been developed over 30 years and working with a progressive and growing private company is a refreshing change of environment for me” said John Beveridge, Director, Design Windows. “The focus on quality and timely customer outcomes from the DW team is impressive, making the decision to expand North relatively easy”.

The Auckland factory will include a centrally located showroom easily accessible for customers, builders and architects looking for the latest designs in windows . The Auckland branch will employ upwards of 30 staff with a focus on high quality systems from key supply partners, Architectural Profiles Ltd and Metro Glass.
