25 jobs created by window firm
An expanding Lanarkshire business is flying in the face of recession by creating 25 jobs.
The UPVC Window and Door Company, owned by Uddingston-born former joiner Jim McGill is branching out with extended factory facilities and a showroom in Hillington.
The jobs will be created immediately when the new business opens in the middle of May.
The UPVC Window and Door Company, which has 15,000sq ft of factory space and five showrooms in Hillington Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Ayr and Blantyre, already employs 150 people.
It has a turnover of £10m and the conservatory division is expected to contribute another £1m in the first year.
Mr McGill, 42, started out as a jobbing joiner before becoming a master craftsman and then establishing his business in the 1990s.
He said: "One of the main reasons the UPVC Window and Door Company has enjoyed such unqualified success has been the hard work, commitment and enthusiasm of the employees.
"I know we are supposed to be in the middle of a recession, but there will always be a market for top quality products at a reasonable price."
