Leading trade window, door and conservatory fabricator, FrameXpress Ltd has appointed Tim Ball as Operations Director in a strategic move that is set to further strengthen the corporate position. As sales and market demands increase and new product developments are introduced, greater precision engineering is required and therefore management and operational expansion has been essential.
With the steady growth of frameXpress in both domestic and commercial sectors over the last few years, there have been a number of investment programmes initiated by senior management at the firm which have led to the need to further bolster the team and broaden the horizon for the frameXpress brand.
Prior to joining the team, Tim gained extensive experience in technical manufacturing having built his skill set from the ground up in sales, engineering and operational management.
Having carefully evaluated the company Tim takes the longer term view in relation to progression and is looking forward to bringing his experience to the fore in a company that has made positive and selective capital investments. The company’s reputation and business ethics were already known to him and he was clearly impressed with the well run business that is heavily populated with a loyal and longstanding workforce.
Initially, he will evaluate the different departments and their working methods. This will be followed by the introduction of a programme that will improve the business incrementally and further build upon its strengths. In a competitive sector, he considers that the industry continues to face challenges of adding value in a market that has to continually combat rising costs and economic uncertainty.
Tim commented: “I am keen to be joining such a forward thinking company at a time of growth and to becoming part of the FrameXpress team. The quality of the service, the facilities and the reputation of the team are second to none, so it will be an exciting opportunity to work together in a cohesive effort to further build the brand.”
Impressed by the lean manufacturing culture that is present at the firm, Tim will now oversee and manage the overall operational running of the company, engaging with existing management with a view to steering the company forward.
He continues, “The products are superbly well manufactured and the portfolio has everything it needs to compete in the current market.”
Managing Directors Mark Westbrook and Stuart Green have a long established philosophy of providing a friendly and flexible service for customers, and consider the company’s success and strengths can be attributed to the quality products and excellent customer services which have been fundamental to establishing a broad national customer base.
On Tim’s new position with the company, Stuart Green commented, “This appointment is a key milestone in the frameXpress journey. Tim’s energy, enthusiasm and experience is a significant asset for the whole company and its customers. I’ve no doubt he will do an impressive job in further developing the business.”
