Not one to rest on its laurels, SafeGuard Glass and Glazing has just completed a further stage of investment, despite completing a £1.5m investment into manufacturing capabilities and premises’ move in 2016.

In the past 18 months a further £200k has been spent on its Peterborough facility and a new showroom is about to open at the Stamford branch to showcase the broad range of products Safeguard both manufacture and install.

Nick Welsh, Managing Director at SafeGuard explains: “Automation is a big part of what we do and advances in technology is one of the biggest things we have seen change over the past 23 years trading. In order to ensure we are delivering on our customers’ expectations both in terms of quality and quantity, we need to keep up with those advances. 

In the past 18 months we have invested in an array of machinery which will further improve processes across the business, including a Forel 2500mm Glass Wash giving us the capability to manufacture much larger sealed units ( up to 2500mm x 3200mm).  Our storage and dispatch area has also increased by 2,000 square feet, allowing us to operate more effectively on a day to day basis.

“Attention to quality is at the heart of everything we do. Take for example our sealed unit production.  We appreciate that the end product is only as good as the sum of its parts, which includes everything from what the eye can’t see (effectiveness of components to ensure longevity of units) to what it can, with perfectly finished glass and decorative designs done well which help the finished product stand out from the crowd. Each step of the process is as important to us as the next and testament to that fact is our continued investment.

“In order to grow and evolve our business, we know we need to continue to make the right investments to keep up to date with the latest technologies. That said, no matter how advanced our technology becomes, every single sealed unit we manufacture will continue to receive the same high degree of quality control, and that attention to detail is something we will never change.”
