Glass Systems March East

The Glass Systems Group, the UK’s largest independent sealed unit manufacturer, is successfully expanding its customer base to include the East of England.

Glass Systems already has 30 customers in the area they supply to on a regular basis, and managing director Alan Atkinson anticipates this number is set to increase:“Historically Glass Systems has not ventured into the Eastern side of England.However following the sad demise of major sealed unit manufacturer Uniglaze 2, a gap has been left in the market which prompted us take the next step of our expansion.

Short term customers in East Anglia are being serviced from our existing factory in South Wales, but we have already made a significant investment in plant and machinery, and this business will switch to our new production facility in the area in the coming months.

The expansion is being spearheaded by ex-director of Uniglaze 2, Mervyn Raby, who joined Glass Systems last November. Mervyn will ensure the transition into this new area and the establishment of the new facility runs smoothly and will continue to oversee existing customers as well as helping support new ones.

Alan continues “We established something similar with Glass Systems Direct Ltd, one of our group companies, five years ago, and the principle in East Anglia will be the same. Whilst a separate company, the new venture in East Anglia will benefit from the advantages, knowledge and expertise of our group.  It will have its own sales office, production facility, geographical area and customers.  As with Glass Systems Direct Ltd and Climate, the “head office” function, will be at our HQ in Swansea.

Alan concludes: “In difficult economic times we continue to invest in, and expand our business. We have seen major expansion and growth at Climate, our conservatory roof division, and Glass Systems Direct, over the last 18 months and the establishment of a new facility to cover the Eastern side of England is the next logical step.

The move into these new areas will allow an increasing customer base to benefit from the quality, level of service and attention to detail that Glass Systems existing customers have come to expect over the last 25 years.”
