Company founder, Wayne Mountford, trained as a joiner in the early nineties before finding employment in Cornwall fitting windows and doors.
Wayne and his wife, Helen, had discussed the possibility of starting their own business but the time was never right.
That is, until Helen became unwell with a short illness and Wayne took time off to look after her. Returning to work, Wayne discovered that his employer no longer had a job for him, so the couple decided to use the opportunity to step out on their own.
The Window Repair Centre was born, serving private and commercial customers throughout Cornwall.
Wayne loves fast cars and slow fishing
The company now employs three additional team members, who all work to install, repair and service windows, doors and conservatories.
“Wayne’s traditional training means he’s got a real eye for detail,” explains Helen. “He still uses the technical skills he learned in his Apprenticeship, applying it to modern homes and the latest products.”
The couple had twin girls in 2011, giving them plenty to keep them busy outside of work.
Helen also likes fast cars and makes a mean chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganache
