They are both ready to take over , having been running the business behind the scenes for the past 6 months. We are very proud of the growth of Jamie and Lloyd and timing is right to hand over the business to the next generation”. Mark Sandles added “ This is a great day in Windel history. For Gary and I to hand over a business to family in just 6 years from creation is testament to the development of Lloyd and Jamie.
