Glassolutions and Jewson teams build closer links to boost service capability for their customer bases.The five roadshows were organised to help Jewson staff improve their knowledge of sister company GLASSOLUTIONS, so their building industry customers can buy more of what they need from within the Saint-Gobain group.Strengthening the links between the two companies, more than 250 members of staff from Jewson attended the roadshows, with many immediately identifying ways in which they could help their regular customers with their glass requirements.
Stephen Huntly, regional general manager for GLASSOLUTIONS in the South was involved in delivering the roadshows. He said: “By bringing Jewson and GLASSOLUTIONS closer together, we have taken another important step along the road to making it easier for customers to do business with Saint-Gobain. The group is large and diverse so it is important that staff within the different businesses know as much as possible about each other – that’s where these roadshows have proved extremely useful.”
Jewson customers in the South will not only have greater awareness of GLASSOLUTIONS products following the roadshows, they will even be able to see products showcased. Vitrio® backpainted glass, which is manufactured by GLASSOLUTIONS at its Hayes factory and used for all kinds of kitchen and bathroom applications, will soon be showcased for customers in Jewson’s kitchen showroom in Bridgend in South Wales and other showrooms are set to follow suit.
