One of Europe’s biggest sash window manufacturers, Victorian Sliders, plans to create more jobs after receiving a £14 million investment by the Business Growth Fund.

The Business Growth Fund (BGF) will now take a 31% share in the South Wales firm which was founded 16 years ago by CEO Scot Starkey.

Victorian Sliders, as its name suggests, manufactures vertical sliding windows in the main. the firm is unusual in the sector as it is able to extrude its own profile, and make its own glass units and hardware. the company manufactures thousands of energy-efficient ECOSlide sash windows every week.

Over the last few years Victorian Sliders has enjoyed substantial growth, driven by soaring demand for sash windows. It is expecting to deliver over £30 million turnover this year.
