After 21 years persuading the fenestration world that Synseal products are the best that money can buy, Tim Armitage the Sales Director has decided that the new WarmCore folding sliding door system represents such an irresistible opportunity that Tim is leaving Synseal to become a WarmCore fabricator.

“Having now spent most of my working life for the last 28 years in the fenestration industry, considering leaving the Synseal family after 21 years was never going to be easy,” says Tim, “but wanting to do something different other than corporate life has always been in the back of my mind and WarmCore has given me that hunger and opportunity back to do something myself that I thought I had lost along the way.”

“Changing direction now whilst also being able to work with my adopted Synseal family again, albeit this time as a customer, will let me have the best of both worlds, something I will greatly enjoy moving forward.”

“I would like to thank all of my colleagues and customers alike that have worked alongside me in my time at Synseal,” continues Tim. “Without their continued support and help over the years, my working life would have been a duller place and going forward I wish them every success in the future.  I would also like to thank David Leng for giving me the opportunity to work with him in the senior team for the last 6 years post management buyout, and wish him and his team ‘old and new’ every success for the future.  It’s been a genuine pleasure working with them over the last 6 years and they know my door is always open.”

David Leng, Synseal CEO says: “It has been great working with Tim since our management buyout and his detailed commercial and technical knowledge will be missed by myself and Synseal.  His contribution to the initial development of Synseal, the huge growth in market share of the Global roof and the doubling in size of the business since the MBO has been enormous and we are pleased to have him still on the team as a customer if not a colleague.”

“I have no doubt that Tim’s business-like manner, his ability to get to the real heart of commercial matters and his deep interest in people will be missed by Synseal and our customers.  At the same time I am sure those attributes will stand him in good stead in his new venture and I wish him all the best and every success as one of our WarmCore fabricators.”
