Hazlemere Windows -” the story so far, 25 years on

Those of you who’ve lived in the area for the past 25 years, will have certainly seen any one of our two dozen conspicuous vehicles driving around, or possibly you’re one of 18,000 satisfied customers that the Hazlemere Group has happily serviced during our illustrious time as the leading home improvement specialists.

For those who are new to the area, you may not be aware that Hazlemere Window Company is a well established, family firm first founded in High Wycombe back in 1985 by Stuart Braham and his father George Braham who sadly passed away in 2006; leaving his three sons to operate and develop the business.

25 years on, Hazlemere Windows remains a community focused family firm, despite having grown year on year to become one of the largest employers in the locality. During the 1990’s, we quickly grew into the Commercial and Public sectors, although we’re more renowned throughout Buckinghamshire and Berkshire as suppliers and installers of high quality retail windows, doors and conservatories.

Hazlemere Windows Co. Ltd. Staff 25 Years On
We are extremely proud to say that the Hazlemere Group is still very much family owned and run, with many of the staff who have worked there for years having connections to the Braham family. George Braham’s son, Stuart is very much in the centre of things, being the “middle” one, and is quite literally in the middle of things as Hazlemere’s Chairman and Managing Director.

Alan Braham, the youngest of George’s three sons is one of Hazlemere’s specialist windows and doors consultants, having first served his apprenticeship on the factory floor in the early 1990’s before training to become the vastly experienced expert double glazing advisor he is today.

Alan and Stuart’s older brother Ian Braham is a conservatory design consultant who also is responsible for bespoke manual and remote control commercial and domestic awnings and canopies that Hazlemere supply and fit.

The company prides itself in high quality materials, craftsmanship, and excellent customer service, all backed by Hazlemere Windows own robust fully comprehensive 10 year guarantee. Hazlemere also offers all its customers the option of further deposit and guarantee insurance provided by the Independent Warranty Association.

Hazlemere Commercial, a major Division of the Hazlemere Group, manufacturers, supplies and installs a wide range of architectural aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling in schools, offices, business and commercial building in the UK. Hazlemere Commercial were awarded a £2.4m contract in 2008 to supply aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling for the new Bideford College in Devon, the bulk of which was delivered in 2009. This sustainability project involved the use of Sapa re-cycled aluminium to make the aluminium double glazed windows, aluminium commercial doors and aluminium curtain walling. The Commercial Division, LHC, Chas and Exor accredited, continues to go from strength to strength, and in 2009, Hazlemere Commercial were awarded a £1.7m contract to refurbish River Gardens in Fulham, West London during 2010. The highly successful Commercial Division is run by Commercial Sales Director Simon Keegan and Commercial Contracts Director, Barry Matthews.

Jason Bradshaw is the Operations Director responsible for all Hazlemere’s aluminium and UPVC conservatory installations, building works and Hazlemere’s dedicated experienced window and door installation teams. All the five board directors are based at Hazlemere’s Head Offices in High Wycombe, Bucks.

So 25 years on this growing family business is a highly respected FENSA registered company, ISO 9001:2008 accredited and Investors in People approved, employing its own expert consultants, designers, estimators, surveyors, fabricators, installers and service engineers. Consequently, the Hazlemere Group are able to control the entire design, estimating, manufacturing and fitting process, along with having sufficient in-house back up to provide the levels of after sales service required by developers, local authorities and end users alike, as well as being able to offer professional expert preventative window and door maintenance, along with repairs and replacement to schools and commercial properties.

Hazlemere Window Company Ltd are members of the Energy Saving Trust, British Fenestration Rating Council and are licensed/approved Pilkington energiKare Partners, plus were the first company in the UK to design, manufacture and install an “A” rated aluminium dual frame aluminium window system, as endorsed and approved by both the Energy Saving Trust and the British Fenestration Rating Council. Hazlemere’s energy rated, energy efficient, energy saving window range also includes an “A” rated UPVC window system.

When the Braham family started this business 25 years ago, I am sure they never envisioned the rapid growth and the amazing support they would receive from the local community, which has fuelled their success and been the bedrock of their continuing business growth. Consequently in 2009, Hazlemere Windows Board of Directors unanimously agreed to purchase the adjoining 38,000 building adjacent to Hazlemere Windows existing Head Office, Factory & Showroom in Wellington Road on Cressex Business Park, High Wycombe.

This strategic acquisition has enabled the Hazlemere Group to invest in the future, whilst continuing its steady growth by streamlining its manufacturing, further improving quality control and remaining highly competitive in the fenestration industry — not bad for a family run business with strong community ties that has steadily grown from humble beginnings to become the largest independent double glazing manufacturer and installer in the region today.
