Both business’s service the same residential OEM door & window fabricators and distributors, with similar product portfolios, with both companies believing strongly that by combining the commercial and technical strengths of both businesses, that they will be able to offer a more comprehensive product range backed up by a market leading customer service.

Managing Director of the new combined business unit Nigel Hutchinson advised us, “Our intention is to fully utilise all the strengths, experience and expertise of both the current commercial and technical teams in order to grow our market share. The plan therefore includes roles for all existing team members and it is our intention to eventually call the business Yale OEM.”

These changes only affect the commercial and technical functions with operations and supply chain teams continuing to function as usual. The current manufacturing and distribution arrangements will also remain unchanged. Nigel added, “We are determined to continue to offer exceptional service levels and innovative hardware solutions to our customers and to become the preferred supplier to the door and window OEM market.”
