Meet the Team
Alan began the business with his Dad Jack in 1964. Alan is passionate about Oxford Double Glazing, its products, service and people. He is well known in the Oxfordshire area, having been "The window man" for 46 years, "man and boy" as the saying goes. He is rightly proud of the company's reputation for quality and of the loyal team of people who constitute the Oxford Double Glazing "family" – a team of enthusiastic people for whom the delivery of first class service, customer care and satisfaction are their guiding principles.
Alan's wife Sylvia has been involved in the business for almost 40 years. As Company Secretary she plays a key role in fostering and supporting the team and in ensuring that things run smoothly and effectively. Over the years she has dealt with thousands of satisfied customers many of whom have become friends. She says that as her son Chris is also the head of a window company, you can guess what the main topic of conversation is whenever the family get together.
Jeff is our Operations Director responsible for planning and arranging our installation and service schedules. He started his employment with the company in the year 2000 as Operations Manager before being appointed Operations Director. Clearly his support for Arsenal FC has not hindered his progress with Oxford Double Glazing. Jeff also has a keen interest in photography.
