Sidey Celebrates its 80th Year

Posted: October 2, 2012

Perth based window and door manufacturer Sidey Ltd, celebrates its 80th anniversary this month. Since its founding in 1932, the company has grown from a small local glazing company into one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of windows and doors to Retail, Trade, Newbuild and Commercial markets and has also become one of the Fair City’s major employers. Sidey kick started celebrations to mark the milestone anniversary with the help of Radio Tay who hosted their mid-morning show from the company’s showrooms on Feus Road. Sidey were also joined by special guest David Sidey, whose father founded of the company.

Victor Dawes, Sidey’s Retail Sales Director commented – “As we recognize this special anniversary and celebrate our proud past, we look forward to more milestones to come. We are delighted to be joined by David Sidey and for him to see how much the company has grown.

“I strongly believe that the key to sustainable growth and longevity is investing in our people and our products. This has allowed us to compete in existing markets and expand into new ones, creating a sustainable future for the company and our valued employee’s.”

Sidey was last month visited by Scottish Finance Secretary John Swinney who praised the company for its contribution to employment in the local area over the years. John Swinney commented – “Sidey is a great example of a successful Scottish manufacturer that is realising its growth plans with the support of Scottish Enterprise.

 “Last year Sidey announced plans to expand its workforce by creating 50 new jobs and during my visit I met the latest recruits and longest serving employees of the Perth based firm. I saw first-hand how the company is developing and producing innovative new products that will give them a competitive edge and help realise their ambitions to enter new markets”.

Sidey will continue its anniversary celebrations throughout the month of October by offering Retail customers a chance to win some fantastic prizes as well as providing Trade customer’s with exclusive offers.
