New Sales Manager for Hörmann Truedor

Hörmann have announced that Gareth Burgess has joined the company as Sales Manager with responsibility for their Hörmann Truedor range of composite doors. With a wealth of experience in the glass and glazing industry, Gareth Burgess joins Hörmann after 22 years working throughout the market.

From his early days at Herron Windows manufacturing PVCu windows right through to sales management roles for several large and established trade and domestic fabricators, Gareth is well-known within the industry and brings considerable knowledge and skill to his new role at Hörmann Truedor.

In his younger days Gareth was a talented football player and played for Huddersfield town until an injury cut short his career. However, after gaining a professional qualification in coaching he took a break away from the fenestration world to coach in Africa, returning to the UK due to the outbreak of Covid.

Commenting on the appointments, Stuart Shaw National Sales Manager at Hörmann, “We are delighted to welcome Gareth to the team, covering a key growth area for the company. The introduction last year of the Hörmann Truedor range of composite doors to the Hörmann portfolio has opened up enormous opportunity in the domestic entrance door market and Gareth brings with him the experience and contacts within the industry to enable us to make an immediate impact. He is well supported by internal sales, marketing, and technical teams based at our headquarters at Coalville, together with the manufacturing expertise of the company’s IG Doors plant in South Wales.”
