South Yorkshire home improvements specialist Yorkshire Windows has appointed a new trainee window installer.

David Darmola, who has a background in door and window manufacture, was selected from more than 200 applicants for the post.

“We have discovered that there is a genuine shortage of experienced fitters within the industry,” said Yorkshire Windows Managing Director Ian Chester.

“With that in mind, we decided that it would be best to launch our own in-house training scheme and we are confident that David will make an excellent addition to the team.”

Yorkshire Windows, the specialist in uPVC doors and windows, composite doors, bi-fold doors, conservatories, orangeries, garage doors and roofline products has its head office in Rotherham and also has a showroom at Ferndale Garden Centre in Dronfield.
