The Glazerite UK Group Ltd has announced a series of investments designed to leverage growth potential for those installer partners looking to stake their claim. Totalling £500,000, the leading trade fabricator’s investments demonstrate a commitment to its customers and the Group’s own long-term aspirations.
A significant part of the investment will increase Glazerite’s capacity and how it manufactures its flush sash products to accommodate the rise in market demand, with the installation of new machinery at its Glazerite East site in Peterborough taking place next month. Refurbishment of key equipment at its Wellingborough plant has also been undertaken to improve product quality, while new hanging benches and racks have been installed at its Specials Division. The fabricator has also added new vehicles to its fleet in order to enhance its delivery service.
Robert Brearley, Glazerite’s Group Managing Director, says: “We have ambitious growth plans for both our business and our customers and investment is key to achieving those aims.
“In addition to new equipment we’re also investing in our marketing support packages, which will be rolled out this year. This includes a fresh new branded website and a social media toolkit, which will help our installers showcase their products and services to customers. Our marketing team is continually developing tools and assets to support our installers, giving them access to resources that will help elevate them in their own markets.”
Glazerite has also been putting the finishing touches on last year’s set of investments, which saw major expansion and the installation of a brand-new showroom at its North West site in Bolton.
Rob adds: “Over the last few months, we’ve taken stock of where we are as a business and what improvements we can make across the Group. We’re in the process of rolling out a continuous improvement strategy to optimise efficiencies and allow for greater visibility of the end-to-end process. Alongside investment this will bring obvious improvements to our service levels, from lead times through to quality and performance, at a time when the industry is gearing up for growth in areas like foiled and flush sash products.
“Glazerite is focused on delivering the very best for our installer partners and, after a challenging time for us all, we’re looking forward to the year ahead.”
