Andy Jones joins Victorian with target to double in three years
3rd September 2019
Andy Jones, until recently Synseal sales & marketing director, yesterday took to his desk as group managing director of the £20million Victorian Sliders with the declared aim of doubling output to 3,000 frames a week within three years.
Andy, the second senior appointment following Danny Hague as sales director two week earlier, told The Glazine: “This is an extremely dynamic company, business had doubled in the last four or five years to £20million sales and 1,500 windows a week.
“Scot (Starkey, chief executive) has invested around £10million in the business in that time; now he is building a team around him to take it even further. I am very excited about being a part of it and the initial aim is to double the business to around its current capacity of 3,000 windows.
He continued: “I have been in hundreds, if not thousands, of window factories in my time and this is without doubt the best equipped and laid out of any of them. Scot and the team have developed an incredible infrastructure which places Victorian Sliders in an ideal position to move forward to the next phase of Scot’s ambitious growth plans and I very much look forward to being part of that and working alongside everyone in the coming months”.
When he announced last month that he was leaving Aperture, the group formed to buy Synseal from administration read story, group CEO Matthew Mycock said: “Andy has been part of the team that has set the groundwork for major transformation within the business and has helped us to be able to embark on the next stage of Aperture’s journey from a position of strength.”
