About World Group

WORLD GROUP can trace its roots back to 1981, when Cliff Spooner started the business in the Cumbrian Eden Valley offering general joinery and building services, based on a philosophy of providing quality, affordable products and honest reliable service.

In 1984 WINDOW WORLD was formed to specialise in the installation of high quality PVC-u windows, doors and roofline products. Over the years we have worked hard to gain a reputation of providing high quality, reliable installations, regardless of the size and scope of the project.

Manufacturing of PVC windows in Carlisle commenced from premises at Rome Street in January 1985. Increased customer demands required a move into larger premises at Lancaster Street in 1987 where we continued to provide high performing double glazing in Cumbria, South West Scotland and over to the North East.

The current WORLD GROUP was introduced in 1998 to offer an increased range of property improvement and homecare products alongside our existing PVC WINDOW WORLD products.

In recent years over £1.5 million has been invested in automating, improving and moving the business to our current Carlisle head office at Kingdom House, Durranhill, with the last few years being a story of development and market growth for our extended range of property improvements and homecare solutions.

World Group are keen to support good causes, like these vests for Cancer Research.

At World Group we believe that customer satisfaction is key to our continued success. We are committed to providing excellent customer service that matches the quality of our products and ensures all customers enjoy a caring, polite, friendly professional and efficient experience when dealing with their property improvement needs.

We aim to make your products as secure, energy efficient and environmentally friendly as we can, whilst offering maximum value in terms of quality, price and customer service.

The product quality and management system of our manufacturing, installations and aftercare services conform to British Standards to ensure you can trust in the quality of our products and services. All our product ranges are also fully CE marked.

Continued family involvement in the business looks secured with no less than seven family members currently working in the World Group team.
