The company, which is part of the international Saint-Gobain group, is a finalist for the award of Glass Company of the Year in the G12 Awards - the glazing industry’s Oscars. Winners will be announced on November 23rd at the awards ceremony at central London’s exclusive Hilton Park Lane Hotel hosted by Patrick Kielty.Mike Butterick, GLASSOLUTIONS Marketing Director said: “It’s fantastic to reach the finals for this award as it reflects all the hard work that the GLASSOLUTIONS team has put in over the last 12 months. It’s been an exciting year which has seen the business rebrand from the established Solaglas name and bring to the fore the outstanding service and product innovations that give us a clear differentiation in a fiercely competitive market.”GLASSOLUTIONS became the new name for Solaglas in March this year to encapsulate the true scope of its services and products – embraced with its new strap-line ‘Your glass.Our world’. Its services range from EcoClear sealed unit manufacturing through to architectural glazing for some of the UK’s most high profile buildings, and 24/7 glazing repairs for many major insurance companies and high street retailers.
Over the last 12 months, the company has delivered new market opportunities through the launch of innovative products, such as a range of glass products for interior glazing solutions.
It has also extended its customer support with a multi-million pound investment in new facilities including its ‘Waterlands’ site, plus service initiatives underpinned by a new content-rich website complete with a unique knowledge centre.
These developments represent investment totalling £2.2m to support the GLASSOLUTIONS team’s even greater focus on adding-value to customers’ businesses through a solutions-driven approach.
