Company History

HWL Trade Frames commenced trading in 2001 on the Maybrook Industrial Estate, Armley in the heart of Leeds, with a team of just 5. We chose Armley for it’s excellent transport links, which are perfect for distribution, HWL was founded by Phil Langton who passed away in December of 2009 and Mark Haley who is now Managing Director of the HWL Windows Group. 

We started fabricating the Kommerling line of products and slowly grew into other areas to increase our offerings to our customers. In 2006 we began to fabricate Solidor Composite Doors and Spectus Vertical Sliding Windows.  2011 saw the addition of Distinction Doors and in 2013 we moved into Timber Alternative products with Residence 9 and Aluminium products. Our ever growing portfolio led to us expanding our work space, from a single unit the 27,000 square foot premises we have today. The Aluminium arm of our business became it’s own company (Nordic Aluminium) in 2015 when it outgrew HWL Trade Frames. We grew our group of companies into other areas with HWL Bespoke Glazing, a manufacturing and retail company specialising in the self build and renovation which launched in 2014. The Trade Counter was opened in the summer of 2015 to make our products accessible to businesses locally. 

HWL Trade Frames is part of the HWL Windows Group, consisting of HWL Trade Frames, Nordic Aluminium, Ilkley Windows, HWL Bespoke Glazing, and HWL Trade Counter. We have over 100 people working within the group and deliver our products across the UK.
