Masterframe appoints Group Chairman

Masterframe has announced the appointment of Alan Burgess from Managing Director and founder, to Group Chairman. Alan helped create the UK’s first dedicated PVC-U box sash window in 1984 and shortly afterwards helped develop and build the initial PVC-U vertical sliders market. Since then, demand has skyrocketed. 

Now, with the demand for flush sash casements surging, it’s clear that what started as an attractive niche timber-look product is turning into a mainstream market window. As sash window specialists, the appointment affords Alan time to focus on business development and areas of growth such as Timberweld®. Timberweld® is a patented method of jointing that creates a perfect butt-joint effect outside and inside the window for an authentic timber-look that is also cost-effective to manufacture at scale. 

Alan comments “I’m delighted to be appointed group Chairman and the opportunities it presents. The market is growing and it’s vital we make the most of it. 

“Masterframe Windows and the Bygone Network have gone from strength to strength. I look forward to seeing these areas of the group grow even further under the recently promoted Managing Director, Carol Slade. This will enable me to focus more time and energy into Timberweld, which is getting a fantastic reception.”
