In a further extension of its technical knowledge and industry support, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is pleased to welcome Steve Turner to its already comprehensive technical team.
Dave Borland, Head of GGF Technical, explains what the appointment means for members: “The GGF is changing for the better by being more proactive, offering a wider portfolio of services to members, and developing a clear, inclusive membership organisation. To continue to do this we need a strong representation of all sectors of the market, both domestic and commercial, which is why we are thrilled to welcome Steve (aka Bruce!) to the team.
“Steve brings with him 30 years of experience in all aspects of the aluminium window and door industry, from fabrication through to sales and specification.”
“I’m genuinely excited to be entering the next phase of my career with the GGF on its technical team,” says Steve, “having worked in a variety of roles in the aluminium sector specifically. My very first job in the industry was with Sternfenster, a PVC-U and aluminium window and door fabricator, and I worked on both the fabrication and installation sides of the business, as well as in managerial roles.
“Following my time at Sternfenster I went on to work in both the commercial and residential markets with a few different aluminium fabricators and systems companies including AluK and Comar. Across these positions I was involved with some very large commercial projects and helped to support fabricators with classroom style training and the development of training seminars. I was also involved in product development and witnessed some of the testing procedures as part of the development process, first hand. Later in my career I became more involved in sales and helped to set up a new aluminium fabrication business.
Steve concludes: “My career path to date has led me through all aspects of aluminium fabrication and installation so I have a good broad knowledge of products and businesses in the sector. I am genuinely excited to be able to use this experience to work with the GGF and support aluminium companies through all the opportunities and challenges facing the market today.”
