Time to get back into aluminium
Posted on 11/11/2020
Aluminium company exlabesa Building Systems UK have welcomed a seasoned professional in the glass industry to their team.
Simon Moore joins as a Business Development Manager, and is already seeing so much potential for the company’s existing product range to grow.
Simon has worked in the UK fenestration industry for 35 years, both in the domestic and commercial markets, and comes with an impressive career history.
Previous experience with a leading PVCu company, the biggest glass producer in the world, a leading aluminium company, and one of the UK’s leading suppliers of bespoke glass products are certainly impressive accolades to his portfolio.
“It was time for me to get back into the window and door industry, so joining exlabesa has been a great opportunity for me,” Simon comments.
With eight factories across three continents, exlabesa Building Systems is one of Europe’s biggest aluminium systems companies.
The company extrudes 160,000 tonnes of aluminium every year, supplying more than 50 exclusive windows, doors and curtain walling systems to up to 15,000 customers from over 40 countries.
They specialise in a high-end range of aluminium window and door products, including casement windows, bi-fold doors, sliding doors and patio doors.
As the company’s Business Development Manager, Simon is responsible for looking at the current business model and using that to grow its client base.
“It’s always been a principle of mine to look at any business I’m working for as if it’s my own business – you take ownership of it,” Simon comments.
“I see exlabesa Building Systems as a sleeping giant at the moment, in that there’s so much opportunity with our existing product range. Despite all the challenges that lockdown has created, opportunity in the aluminium market is immense, and I look forward to taking this company forward in the coming months.”
exlabesa Building Systems Sales Director Kevin Warner comments: “At exlabesa, we know that completing the productive cycle of aluminium means providing value to our customers. That’s why our business development has always been directed towards consolidating a reliable, differentiated and competitive supplier.
“We’re excited to have Simon on board as our new Business Development Manager, and are confident that he’ll be able to take the company forward.”
exlabesa Building Systems has a solid business background of more than 50 years and is currently one of the world leaders in aluminium windows, doors and façade systems. For more information, please call 01302 762500 or visit www.exlabesa.co.uk.
