That was back in the summer of 1972 when ‘Puppy Love’ was at Number 1, Ted Heath was Prime Minister, Interest rates were at 6% and Paul Hannon joined Sashless Timber Windows as a 15 year old school leaver. Fifty years on and Paul is still with the company.
Paul Hannon celebrated 50 years of continuous employment with Sashless Windows on Tuesday 26th July.
Alastair Chown, managing director at Sashless Windows commented: ”Its something of an achievement for Paul to have been with the business since our incorporation in 1972 and speaks volumes for Paul’s commitment and dedication to the family business. Paul has witnessed many changes within the industry over the past 50 years and I’d like to thank him for his good humour, hard work and for all of his efforts in moving the company forward over that time.”
Paul has worked in every department within the manufacturing side and included a spell in customer care services. Outside of work Paul spends time with his family.
Sashless Windows started manufacturing windows ‘without sashes’ in 1965, incorporating in 1972, before moving into the manufacture of timber windows with sashes with the advent of the double glazed sealed unit.
Today, Sashless continue to be a leading manufacturer of timber windows and doors primarily as a B2B company and are still owned and manged by the Chown family.
All of the company’s windows and doors are manufactured in Yorkshire from FSC certified timber.
