A Master Class in Partnering

Nottinghamshire based IGU and composite door manufacturer, Masterglass GB recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, and during those 10 years, the company is pleased to state that it has only ever bought from RegaLead for decorative glass components and composite door glass.

The most recent investment was a CadRam HDDS resin dispensing machine which, six months on, has proved invaluable in creating cost-effective, unique designs in-house.Mark Bowskill, Director at Masterglass GB explains: “We have been manufacturing high quality IGUs since 2005 and have always produced stained and bevelled glass in-house.When we started making composites in 2010 we took on the Signature range so that we could offer stunning, off the shelf, decorative glass designs for our new doors.

“As a company we pride ourselves on being big enough to deliver but small enough to care, and while some manufacturers focus on price, we have and always will produce quality with truly creative designs. This is why it is important to us to bring as much in-house as possible so that we are in control of the design process and can offer a speedy turn-around on bespoke glass designs. The Glass Eye software and plotter package has been perfect, as we can customise designs quickly to produce matching sidelights, and more recently, the CadRam machine has allowed us to literally produce any design in house, the only restriction is the imagination. Until you use the machine you don’t fully appreciate how good it really is - one member of our team even wants to take it home! As styles continue to change in the window and composite door market we have also made another investment in RegaLead machinery with the new CadBlast 1200 sandblaster, allowing us to bring decorative sandblasted glass in-house.

“But it’s not product alone that makes a good partnership, with RegaLead we’ve found that anything they can do to support us, they will - there’s really not another company in the industry like them. Returning to the issue of price, yes, we could possibly buy cheaper elsewhere, but quality products backed by quality support are paramount. Plus, when we buy from a company like RegaLead, we have the assurance of a stable supplier with a long established history – just as our customers have with Masterglass GB – so we can rely on a partnership that will last for the next 10 years.”
