Our dedicated team of expert innovators have designed and delivered Stellar – a quantum leap forward in system design.


Mark Austin – Sales Director (Aluminium)

Mark has a proven track record in sales, working closely with customers across the industry to consistently deliver sales success. Having worked in the commercial aluminium sector for most of his career he now brings his expertise into the trade and retail market. Originally from a fabrication background, Mark brings a strong technical expertise and extensive product knowledge gained, in part, from over 8 years with a leading European aluminium systems supplier. Mark has successfully built strong relationships with customers and consistently demonstrated a commitment to supporting them and adding value to their operations.


Paul Booth – Design Director, Aluminium Products

Paul has over 35 years’ experience in the aluminium business and a successful track record with systems development. Highly respected within the industry, he has also served on the Technical Committee at the Council for Aluminium in Building. Paul is amongst those who feel the aluminium industry has been short-sighted in ignoring the developments that have been happening in the PVC-U sector. Paul was also frustrated that design ideas were constrained by having to fit into existing product suites. A completely new system, Stellar has no such restrictions, allowing Paul to help deliver something quite exceptional.

Rob Hartill

Rob Hartill – Commercial Director, Safeware

Few individuals have managed to amass Rob’s breadth of experience in hardware. Even fewer combine his degree of cross-functional competence with complete commitment to customer satisfaction. Rob’s driven by a desire to support fabricators and installers with hardware which adds value throughout the supply chain and which homeowners can cherish and take pride in. Building on the extensive knowledge gained from over three decades working for major hardware brands, now, as a Commercial Director within Epwin, Rob has been instrumental in developing the range for the Stellar suite, bringing his characteristic energy and meticulous attention to detail to the task.
