A CUMBERNAULD company is branching out despite the economic gloom – after opening a new premises in Aberdeen.

Blairlinn-based CMS Enviro Systems is consolidating its reputation as one of Scotland’s biggest double glazing firms by expanding its operation to the Granite City.

And the business has already won its first big contract after sealing a deal to provide windows to properties owned by Grampian Housing Association over the next three years.

CMS boasts impeccable green credentials as it recycles 100 per cent of its extracted windows and doors. And that has proved to be something of a selling point as local authorities attempt to meet strict Scottish Goverment targets for recycling. CMS Managing director Andrew Kerr said: “We saw the potential for growth in the north of the country and Aberdeen seemed like the ideal place to set up a new base for our operations.

“Winning the Grampian Housing Association contract is great for strengthening our presence in the north and east.’’

Laura Fiddes of Grampian Housing Association said that the organisation was pleased to offer its custom to the Cumbernauld firm.

“We are committed to sustainable specifications and we were impressed by the capabilities of CMS to deliver this.Their customer focus was also an important factor to take into consideration.”
