Large scale manufacturing is what we do...
We make high performance bespoke timber windows, doors and fire doorsets for the domestic and commercial marketplace.
We’re proud to be a successful British manufacturer. From our 175,000 sq. ft. purpose-designed factory on the Cumbrian coast, we deliver throughout the country for installation by a network of licensed distributors.
We make timber products that combine quality engineering and technical know-how with designs that suit British buildings - traditional or contemporary. And if you don’t see exactly what you want, the chances are we can make it specially for you.
Who Are We?
At West Port, we can boast one of only two high-tech electrostatic paint plants in the UK – the other is owned by global car giant Jaguar. With it, we can apply 10-12 coats in a single pass and any overspray is recycled into the paint system, making savings that we’re then able to pass on to our customers.
We have our own highly advanced paint mixing facility. By taking samples of a desired colour, then running it through a spectrometer, the device can replicate it. We can supply windows and doors in any of the over 200 standard RAL colours, and our paint mixing facility can produce 50,000 colour variations, we also offer a wide range of translucent coatings that bring out the natural beauty of the wood.
We can even supply factory finished dual colour windows and doors, in two different colours, one on the outside and another – or natural timber – on the inside.
More stains are available upon request.
The colour samples shown are for illustrative purposes only and may differ from the original colour. For best results always use an approved colour swatch for accuracy.
Timber is a natural, renewable resource. It’s light, strong and has low thermal transmittance. But what’s more, at a time when we’re increasingly waking up to our collective impact on the environment, it’s by far the greenest material available for window manufacture.
Research conducted on a wide range of timber windows by the respected Building and Urban Design department at Heriot-Watt University found that every product examined would prove carbon neutral over a sixty-year life span. Every timber product tested was also found to have a longer life expectancy than uPVC equivalents – between 23-35 years of uPVC, 56-65 years for timber.
We source all our timber from sustainable and responsibly managed sources. The combination of the carbon sink effect of forests and the carbon stored within the West Port manufactured products, each window saves 160kg of CO2 compared to and uPVC window.
FSC® certified products available upon request.

“We had a visit from your technician today who refinished the stable door in question. I will just start by quickly saying thank you very much for a very prompt response to our little issue here in Tetbury. The technician was here this morning and carried out the flawless repair in a very short time and should be commended for his professional, courteous attitude and skill. He is another example of the great team you have at West Port, that I have had great pleasure in dealing with.“
