One of the UK’s leading manufacturer of trade windows and doors in Halifax has bought and merged with specialist aluminium manufacturer Customade Group Ltd.

National law firm Bond Dickinson LLP acted on behalf of the Polyframe Group and its majority investor, Cairngorm Capital.

The acquisition means that the enlarged group, which will now trade under the name of Customade, will have revenues exceeding £100 million, an enhanced work force of around 900 staff and will have a complete and comprehensive product range across aluminium windows, composite entry doors and PVCu products.

John Naylor-Leyland of Cairngorm Capital, said: “Customade has an outstanding reputation in the industry for supplying high-quality branded aluminium products, which together with the excellence of its operational capabilities and the calibre of its staff, make it the natural partner to enhance Polyframe’s leading PVCu window and composite door range.”

The merger with Customade continues the firm’s strategy to develop the UK’s leading trade fabricator of PVCu, aluminium and composite windows and doors, addressing all trade customers’ fenestration needs.

The firm has a 200 000 square feet modern fabrication plant and production facility in Gibbet Street, Halifax.
