The Company

You may not have heard of Epwin Group PLC, but the chances are you’ve passed multiple homes, public buildings or commercial premises that contain building products we manufacture and distribute, here in the UK. Without realising you’ll have opened our windows and doors, looked up at our gutters, cladding and chimneys, admired our decorative wall coverings and possibly even walked across our decking whilst on holiday! With this in mind you can begin to see why our annual turnover has grown to in excess of £300m.

We are passionate about sustainability. It goes without saying that all our products are energy efficient and low maintenance but for years we have invested heavily into research and technology to ensure that our operations are efficient, understanding that we need to protect and use wisely the resources available to us.

Given the breadth of products and services we offer we have the opportunity to work with a multitude of different customers and clients. From national housebuilders, main contractors and architects right through to stockists, independent builders, specialist installers, for windows, doors and decking for example, as well as keen DIYers doing up their home. At the core of our operation and the reason for our success, is our team of approximately 1200 employees located across the UK who go to great lengths to ensure that all these customer groups experience the very best from Epwin Group PLC.
