After nearly 50 years a Chippenham double glazing firm is moving to new headquarters as part of an ambitious expansion plan.
DL Windows is relocating its HQ to Calne and has put it familiar showroom in Malmesbury Road, Chippenham up for sale.
The team are moving to the Porte Marsh Industrial Estate in Calne as the current Chippenham site is no longer fit for purpose. The change is part of a larger expansion plan which will include opening another Chippenham town centre showroom over the coming months and also further showroom in Yeovil, Somerset which is already the home of sister company DL Group.
DL’s managing director Malcolm Lyus said: “As a result of our current success we have out-grown our current premises so we are now going to open a new pre-installation and showroom facility in Calne, which is currently being equipped and should be operational soon.”
Mr Lyus, who is well known locally for helping to guide Chippenham Town FC to Wembley as club chairman in 2000, added: “In conjunction with this, a new high-tech showroom containing all the last technology is due to open early January 2017 in Chippenham town centre.”
DL Windows has had its roots in Chippenham since it was formed in 1968 by Doug and Bet Lyus – who still live in the town today. The family-run firm has been providing Chippenham and the surrounding area with windows, doors and conservatories ever since.
The current 4,222sq-ft Chippenham site is on the market with Kavanaghs of Melksham.
