Ayrshire-based Scotia Windows and Doors has made a key appointment to its board with Tony Campbell, formerly of Saint-Gobain, being installed as director of operations after joining the group in February.
Campbell, who spent 15 years in multi-site manufacturing and operations with Glass Solutions before moving over to Saint-Gobain’s’s timber kit division, Scotframe, adds an additional layer of expertise to the Scottish volume fabricator, which has built an enviable reputation supplying to the new build sector.
From its Kilmarnock campus, Scotia is also expanding its production of aluminium products and has laid solid foundations to address the requirements of the new Future Homes Standard, using to good advantage the strength of its Passivhaus design team.
Managing director Gavin Smith said, “Tony’s promotion reflects the positive impact made in the short space of time he’s been with the company. His experience with one of the world’s leading operators in the sustainable construction sector is already shaping Scotia for a new and challenging phase in the industry, and these improvements to our production and processes will help the group strengthen its position in the market, not only as it endures a sustained period of uncertainty, but also as we look further ahead to a recovery in the industry in the longer term.”
