NEW contracts valued at just under £1.8m (one point eight million pounds) have been awarded to Irvine based Andrew Wright Windows by Cruden Building.
The nine separate contracts combined involve the manufacture and supply of more than 3,500 (three thousand five hundred) windows and doors for housing developments across central Scotland. This includes new housing developments at Larkhall in South Lanarkshire, Musselburgh and Prestonpans in East Lothian and East Balornock, Castlemilk, Barlanark and Dennistoun in Glasgow.
Charlie Berry, Managing Director, Andrew Wright Windows, said, “It is especially pleasing for us to have won these contracts from one of Scotland’s most prominent housebuilders. Over the years, we have invested consistently in our production facilities and in building a fantastic team of people with a real focus on delivering quality.”
Founded in 1937, Andrew Wright Windows is one of the longest established window manufacturing companies in the UK and one of Irvine’s biggest private employers, providing work for around 125 people. From two specialist production facilities in Irvine, the company manufactures double and triple glazed UPVC windows, with a current annual production capacity of 30,000 units. Customers range across the commercial, trade, domestic and local government sectors.
Andrew Wright Windows has remained a family business for most of its 85 years history and was acquired by the current owners, the Berry family, in the mid 1990s.
Cruden Building is part of the Cruden Group, one of Scotland’s largest development and construction groups. The company currently delivers around 1,200 homes per year, across the private and public sectors, representing almost 1 in 15 of homes built annually in Scotland.
