A Maryport windows and doors manufacturer has appointed a new sales director.

West Port, based on the town's Solway Industrial Estate, has welcomed Ian Newey to the team.

The company specialises in timber windows and doors and was set up in 1997.

He has also worked in the construction industry as a contractor and supplier.

Mr Newey said: “I have always held West Port in high regard, a company that sets goals and then goes out and achieves them."

Sean Parnaby, managing director, said: “During this time of growth, there is no better person to deliver West Port’s sales strategy than Ian. We look forward to seeing him apply his previous knowledge, experience and expertise to assist our operation in development and expansion.”
