Meet the Team

A family run business, the team at Metwin comprises of an agile group of individuals with extensive skills and knowledge of the steel window and door industry. We all share a common commitment to communication, collaboration and creating beautiful work. It is these core values that we believe have kept the company established for over 60 years.

Anthony Burcham

Company Secretary & Founder

A former World War II paratrooper, Anthony founded Metwin in 1956 with the help of a small £300 investment from a neighbor and business partner. Since then Metwin has gone from strength to strength establishing itself at the centre of the steel window industry.

Now in his 90s, Tony is still a core member of the Metwin team. Although his responsibilities in the day-to-day running of the business have subsided, he is actively present at the boardroom table.

Frank Anderson

Managing Director

Son-in-law to Anthony, Frank joined the family business in 1986. Having worked with BT for 30 years, Frank brought a wealth of experience to Metwin in customer care, integration and health and safety.

Frank’s career at Metwin started with small refurbishment and overhauling contracts, enabling him to learn the industry and its products. Over the years he has gained invaluable knowledge in the servicing and maintenance avenue of the industry and today runs a number of large long-term contracts in the South East.

Bernadette Burcham

Director and Head of Accounts

Bernadette, daughter-in-law to Anthony, has been with Metwin since 1990. With a background in banking and law she took responsibility for the paperwork and accounts of the company.

Bernadette has played a vital role in shaping of Metwin over the years and continues to do so today. This has included moving the company from Chingford to Harlow and the implementation of modern accountancy.

Daniel Anderson

Estimator, Contracts Manager and Director

Daniel joined Metwin in 2005. He had worked part-time as a teenager completing various tasks both on and off site, but left to study for a degree. After university Daniel travelled the world, before joining his father’s business full-time to concentrate on building a customer base.

Today Daniel works closely with architects and clients on residential projects of all different building types, as well as with main contractors on larger commercial projects.

Derek Smith

Estimator & Contract Manager

Continuing the theme of long standing staff, Derek began working for Metwin in the 70s. After establishing himself as an installer of Crittall and steel windows he moved into the office, bringing with him a plethora of knowledge from working on site.

He specialises in heritage properties, listed buildings and projects in conservation areas, working alongside companies and residents to improve and modernise these properties, whilst maintaining original architectural intent.

Andy Wittridge

Estimator, Contract & Store Manager

Metwin discovered Andrew almost by accident on site in 1996. At the time he was working as a decorator, but Frank recognised his potential and recruited him as a casement welder and fabricator.

Andrew has since moved into the office bringing his knowledge of the factory floor with him. He still plays an active role within the factory though, overseeing refurbishment projects and the crafting of bespoke installations.
