Glass and aluminium specialist Cube Glass has teamed up with south-west of Scotland construction company Ashleigh Building and has kicked off the relationship with three contracts totalling £130,000 in value.

It is the first time that Cube Glass has worked with Ashleigh, which has offices in Prestwick and Dumfries, and the new partnership adds to the rapidly-expanding portfolio of quality clients for the Cumbernauld-based manufacturer and installer.

In a sector where winning business at all costs is a priority, Cube Glass adopts the unusual position of working only with clients with whom it has a sense of commercial affinity and whose corporate governance values it shares.

Gary Thorn, Cube Glass founder and Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Ashleigh Building, which has a non-adversarial commercial approach and an attractive business ethos.”

The first project for the new client is in Irvine, where Cube Glass is replacing existing windows, doors and building new curtain walling in an extension at the Tarryholme care home, in a deal with a value of £110,000.

Subsequently, it has been awarded contracts with Ashleigh for new curtain walling in Annan High Street and replacement and new curtain walls and windows at Struthers Primary School in Troon, with values of £7,000 and £13,000 respectively.

Mr Thorn said: “I came into contact with Ashleigh Building through hub South West, the local infrastructure partnership. I won a hub presentation and I met one of their people there and the relationship developed.”

The Ashleigh contracts are the latest of more than half a million pounds worth of work which Cube Glass has secured recently and its quotations are now averaging out at more than £1 million a month.

Cube Glass, based within Cumbernauld’s Lenziemill Industrial Estate, focuses on curtain walling, doors, windows, glass roofing systems and shop fronts as well as bullet, bomb and blast resistant glass.

With record sales this year of around £2.75m, it has 14 highly-qualified employees. Around 80% of the company’s sales are made to major companies such as Hilton Hotels, the Ministry of Defence, Arnold Clark, Morris and Spottiswood and Clark Contracts. It is operating throughout the UK.
