Top Team To Innovate And Grow Fast In Aluminium
Garner Aluminium Extrusions (Garnalex) is reinventing the way aluminium windows and doors are fabricated, installed and sold. Aiming to transform every aspect of the customer experience. The new venture from industry legend Roger Hartshorn is a team effort though.
“Aluminium is a great material,” explains Roger, “but residential window systems haven’t always lived up to the material. So, we’re on a journey to transform fabricators’ and installers’ experience of buying aluminium systems and aluminium windows, and make it easier and better to fabricate, install and sell. And it will be a beautiful window. So, we’ve assembled ‘probably’ the best, most experienced team there is in the market.”
Phil Parry joined Garnalex as Technical Director a year ago and is responsible for technical specification, testing and development. An industry veteran, having worked at LB, then 10 years at Eurocell, and recently as Head of Research and Development at Synseal where he brought WarmCore to market.
David Lennox, Operations Director, gained his considerable experience at Eurocell, The Epwin Group and most recently HL Plastics.
Adrian Girling, ex-Business Micros and Total Glass, is Software Development Director, creating new software to work in conjunction with the new system so it is easier than ever to fabricate.
Emma Arrell, Finance Director, was previously FD of the HL Plastics Group, which includes Liniar.
Roger comments: “We are investing in the best machinery, the best people and facilities. Fabricators and installers will be glad to know that we also intend our service to be ‘PVC outstanding’ in performance. That’s not perhaps what they’re used to in the aluminium market. With the new state-of-the-art aluminium extrusion press installed, we aim to be supplying the trade extrusion market in October, and be launching two truly innovative window systems at the end of Q1 2020. Fabricators and installers who want to see what they’ll be making and selling in 2020 can reserve their place on a Garnalex Ambassador Workshop.”
