Solaglas Windowcare benefits from retail boost

Glass repair and replacement specialist Solaglas Windowcare is reporting a significant uplift in revenue arising largely from increased exposure to new markets.

The Rotherham-based company, part of Saint-Gobain Group, says sales income increased by 84% in the first quarter of 2009 compared to the same period last year.

Managing director, Ian Davy commented: “By responding to our clients’ needs and increasing our presence within the maintenance and commercial glazing sectors, we have been able to increase our income significantly.

“For us, the key is to make this growth sustainable in the long-term. We will do this by continuing to focus on providing excellent service, understanding the demands on clients, making it easy to do business with us and of course, keeping a watchful eye on costs and profitability.”

Solaglas Windowcare provides nationwide window and frame repair, replacement and refurbishment. Currently, the business has some 340 directly-employed staff and last year reported turnover of over £23m. 

The company’s extensive portfolio of clients includes major insurers, loss adjusters, facilities management companies, building maintenance companies, government agencies, local authorities, hotels, passenger centres and retailers.

Last year the business completed a major rebranding exercise and established four specific operating sectors for growth: Insurance Services, Commercial Glazing, Maintenance Services and Call Management. A recent restructure of the business’s sales and marketing department saw the appointment of three new sales managers.
