Steve Kendrick has taken up the role of managing director at Alunet Systems and JDUK Door Systems. Steve joined his first systems company in 2008, and has since gained experience in manufacturing, product development and launches. His namesake, Steve Hudson, is CEO of the group, and the appointment allows the CEO to spend more time across other businesses in the group, as it nears annual turnover of £50m.

“I’m looking forward to growing the businesses with the teams here at Alunet and JDUK,” said Steve. “I hope my experience and my background will benefit how we grow and develop within the market.”

He added: “I’m really excited to join Steve Hudson and his team, along with Jason, Paul and Mike. We’ve got a fantastic set up in terms of people.”

There are new product launches on the cards for the two brands too, as Steve went on to explain: “We’re just scratching the surface in terms of our customer base. For example, on the Alunet side, we are currently launching a new window. And the ESS47 super-slim sliding patio door system, which launched earlier this year, is already a new firm favourite with our customers. On the JDUK side, we have been working on some new additions to our current range, which will really benefit our customers.

“We have focussed on sourcing top-quality products from the best extruders around the world, who coincidentally are all based in Europe. Moving forward, working with European partners will make such a difference to our lead times, the stability of the supply chain and being able to work effectively and efficiently.

“We already have one of the most popular designs on the market for our aluminium profile system for single doors, French doors and bi-folding doors and windows, which we have been selling for seven years now, with over 3,000 doors worth of material sold every month. And we have the capacity to hold £3m worth of stock right here in the UK. This puts us in a great position from which to build upon.

“Over the next six months, I’m looking forward to getting to know, and working with the team at Alunet Systems and JDUK, along with meeting our customers. It’s great that we’re going to be exhibiting at the Fit Show too, and that’s where you’ll get to meet me and our team, to see our products in situ at stand G35.”
