Jade Engineering has appointed Gareth Davies as Managing Director in a move designed to lead the Coventry firm into its next phase and achieve long-held growth ambitions for the company. 

As the industry’s leading manufacturer of tooling for PVC-U   and aluminium frame production, a popular range of single-purpose machines that populate the factories of frame-makers throughout the UK and Ireland, and a burgeoning division offering production consultancy and design solutions, the firm’s owners Sean Mackey and Adam Jones believe that additional expertise is required to take Jade to the next level. 

Says Sean: “We recognise that the expertise that has allowed our growth and success to this point needs to be supplemented with the skills and expertise that others can provide more effectively if we want to grow. We can then focus on what has made us successful and extend this for our existing and future clients.”

Gareth is said to provide the skills and expertise that Jade is looking for in full. With nearly 35 years’ experience as a business leader, in senior management roles across a diverse range of financial services, IT, engineering, consulting, and outsourced services businesses, Gareth is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (FCIPD). 

One of the key tenets of Gareth’s appointment is his lack of connection with the window and door industry: Sean and Adam are insistent that the skill sets required by Jade would not be found within the core industry that they serve. Immediate business priorities are to manage the move into the company’s new 30,000 feet2 headquarters building acquired 18 months ago and to professionalise the business at every level, to deliver their longer-term vision and drive growth.

A keen Leicester City fan and season ticket holder, Gareth is married with 2 grown up children.  Whatever spare time he has beyond his work and family is spent watching sports (mostly football, rugby and cricket) or listening to music.
