Newsletter January 2024

We are looking forward to another busy year with various exciting new projects on the horizon, read on for an insight into a few of our upcoming projects.

Two New Build Primary Schools in Cornwall
Kier Construction will be building two new primary schools in Cornwall for which we will be providing the glazing packages. We are thrilled to be working with Kier Construction again on these projects which will provide much needed education facilities in the area.

AFC Bournemouth Training Facility
We have also been subcontracted by Amiri Construction who are building a new training facility for AFC Bournemouth. The new training facility has an impressive modern design and the Curtain Walling we will be providing will help to achieve an impressive façade.

Safran New Technology Centre
A New Technology Centre in Gloucestershire is being built by E G Carter Ltd which will house more than 300 workers in mainly engineering design and product support offices for aerospace giant Safran. The glazing package mainly consists of Curtain Walling which will be manufactured from the Technal profile system.

We are also thrilled to be working with some new clients this year and look forward to sharing details of these projects later on in the year.

We are currently completing the process to achieve certification to manufacture Schuco Fire Rated products. UL completed an audit of our Factory Production Control processes in December 2023 with no major non-conformances to report. We look forward to receiving our Certificate of Constancy of Performance for Schuco ADS 80 FR by the end of January.

Our Purchasing Manager, Andrew Buckley will be retiring at the end of February. Andy joined the company in 2016 and has played a vital role in ensuring that materials are procured on time so that manufacturing and installation activities continually flow. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy for all his hard work over the years and wish him well for the future.

We would like to welcome Richard Letherby to the team who will fulfil the role of Purchasing Manager. Rich has worked in the industry for many years having previously worked for Saint Gobain. His experience will be crucial in ensuring that materials are procured in the required timeframes to enable project milestones to be met.
