SONY DSCLincolnshire’s largest and longest established fabricator, Sternfenster, has recently made a strategic appointment as it embarks on its next stage of growth. Steve Lane is a well-known figure in the industry, and has taken up the role of National Sales Manager.

Sternfenster Managing Director, Mike Parczuk, said: ”Steve has over 28 years’ experience in the industry and his knowledge will prove pivotal as we look to implement a series of exciting strategies over the next few years. He is definitely the right person for it and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team”.
