Listers invests £750,000 and creates jobsFenton-based Listers, a window and door company that was saved from the brink of collapse in August 2017, has invested £750,000 and created more than 30 new jobs.

The company (www.listertf.co.uk) was bought out of administration by current owner CEO Roy Frost (he also owns Essex-based fabricator GJB Window Systems).

Over the last two years, the business has undergone a ‘massive series of improvements’ — including investment in new plant and machinery, software and a refurbishment of the office space and showroom.

Trade counter manager Wayne Tracey said: “We do a lot of manufacturing for the wider GJB Group in Stoke-on-Trent, because the Essex operation doesn’t have the same capabilities as we do — and we still have more capacity to grow.

“We are producing an average of 1,200 windows a week at the moment, but we have the ability to increase that to 2,000 when the time comes.”
