EAGLE is on the move
Eagle Boat Windows (EBW) was acquired by Eagle 3 Holdings Ltd on 22/11/19.
The business has relocated to new premises in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk and will reopen on Monday 6/1/20 following a Christmas shutdown. Contact numbers and email remain as before. Neil and Sharonne (previous owners) will continue to provide support to ensure a seamless handover and to maintain the excellent reputation EBW has achieved over the past 30 years.
The new company has two Directors, Rowland Smith and Tim Prescott who, along with Rowland’s wife Jenny form the EBW team you, as valued clients, will be served by.
Rowland qualified as a Naval Architect and worked with BP Shipping prior to a career in IT and technology related business. An engineer at heart, but with business qualifications and experience, he also founded and has run a marine certification business (Gablemarine) for the past 10 years, helping clients identify, purchase, transport and certify (CE) a wide range of powered and sailing craft. A lifelong sailor, racer and boat owner he appreciates the challenges yacht maintenance can inflict and will strive to ensure EBW continues to deliver quality, longevity and performance in its products and services, whether you are an owner, refit manager or with pride, the RNLI.
Tim is a time served apprenticed toolmaker and machinist with over 30 years experience working as, with and for engineers, applying his measured approach to prototype development and production. Skilled in CNC programming and component manufacture, his previous projects have included motorsport parts for leading supercar manufacturers and Formula 1. Of Northern decent, you’ll find him straight talking and a stickler for quality, consistency and engineered solutions. He loves motorbikes too.
Jenny remains (for now) with the local Hospice as events fund raising manager, a part-time role she has developed over the past 14 years from being alone to having a team of five. Over the years her events have raised in excess of £2m for the Hospice, supporting dignified end of life care for the community. 11 years ago she instigated what is now the largest single annual event, ‘Girls Night out’ with over 2,000 women walking our streets wearing pyjamas and flashing bunny ears into the evening darkness, supported by over 300 marshals, public, fire, police, RAF and USAF and more. In one night this adds £250k to the Hospice. In time Jenny will apply these skills to support the admin and sales function at EBW. She’s also Vegan and a fabulous cook.
