Another bumper growth year has led to the appointment of Industry stalwart Andy Jones as Commercial Director at Made for Trade, a move which adds some new perspective on the business’s strategy as it continues rapidly expanding out of the SME arena and becomes a larger enterprise.
Andy’s industry knowledge and established business relationships will be a fantastic asset to MFT’s growing sales department and his broad experience of glazing products gives some new insight into product development strategy.
Andy Jones commented on his appointment “I am really looking forward to working alongside Brad, Chris and the wider team. I have known MFT and its directors for many years and have always admired their attention to detail in product design and engineering. Their award-winning products have placed them in a unique position moving forward, they are already the UK’s largest manufacturer of aluminium Lantern roofs and Bi-folding doors and I look forward to increasing this position over the coming months and years and taking the Korniche brand to the next level. Under Brad and Chris’s management MFT have established themselves as the number one trade supplier for these products and I intend to use my knowledge and industry contacts gained over the last 35 years to enhance this position further as MFT seeks to move to the next stage of their already impressive growth plans. The market has changed hugely over the past 35 years especially in the past 18 months and its no longer the survival of the fittest but more the survival of the most agile and MFT have agility in abundance, I have visited 100’s if not 1000’s of manufacturing companies all over the world in my previous roles and I can honestly say that I have rarely come across a business which invests so much in research and development, process control, training and continuous improvement as MFT do”.
