From 1 January 2013, we initiated a partnership with Logical Bridge Ltd, a Newcastle-based company to represent CalWin AS in The UK and Ireland. This involves marketing and selling CalWin to the British market, and offering consultancy on CalWin, ranging from analysis requirements, implementation, and finally general consulting and training of personnel. The company is newly established and is headed by Simon Mallinson, who some will remember we interviewed in a previous newsletter. Simon was then IT manager at Allan Brothers, and work on implementation, commissioning and operation of CalWin there.
When he chose to establish his own company to run his own IT business, he took thankfully contact with us. He through his work with CalWin become very interested in the possibilities and solutions in the system and wanted primarily to use the knowledge they acquired to work to get CalWin selected as industry solution for most British manufacturers.
Simon has now been joined by Colin Virtue, Technical Manager, who has over 20 years’ experience in the timber window industry in both a design and manufacturing environment as well as vast production knowledge. He is a certified BFRC simulator and has an in-depth knowledge of testing and accreditation.
CalWin is growing rapidly in the UK and is now being used by the following Companies :
- Allan Brothers
- West Port
- Compass Windows and Doors
- Patchett Joinery
