Having an initial investment of over £½m on buildings, machinery and production equipment, the company appointed a new Director with extensive glass experience to co-ordinate the operation and the company began trading from their current premises in Fountain Road Hull.
By June 2005, a modern CNC glass cutting machine was installed along with a double glazed unit production line. By September 2005 a further £¾m was invested on a brand new toughening facility and by now the company had increased to circa 25 people.
The directors have focused on introducing new and modern manufacturing equipment, which gives the capability to produce toughened safety glass, to British Standards, from some of the latest products available and in some of the fastest production times possible. We also manufacture double glazed units for Domestic and Commercial applications, from a wide range of glass types including “A” Rated Energy Efficient Solar Control Coatings, as well as supplying self-cleaning glass products to conservatory manufacturers.
Further investment in modern glass processing equipment allows the company to shape, drill, grind and polish various glass types and thicknesses, producing a range of glass shelving, mirrors, balustrades and fully assembled U.V. Bonded Glass Display Cabinets.
In 2013 the company purchased an additional 24,000 sq ft building on Wincolmlee, close to its existing site. These new premises have become the Company’s Head Office, accommodating its Administrative Activities, along with its Double Glazed Unit Line and an additional state of the art Toughening Plant in the form of the Glaston FC500. The move has allowed the original Fountain Road site to come an operation completely dedicated to processing, including its Laminating and Heat Soaking facilities and purpose built Paint Booth.
This continued investment has enabled the company to increase its products range, providing its customers with glass products which are fully manufactured in house, where it can ensure that quality standards are maintained and delivery expectations are met. The directors of the company are delighted with the progress the company has made so far and believe that all staff have played a big part in helping the company build a reputation for being an efficient supplier of quality products, on time! The aim of the business is to continue to provide a service and support to any manufacturer with a need for a comprehensive range of glass products. This will be achieved with continued investment in the latest technology and the development of products and staff.
