Glass Systems steals the Show with over 150 new leads

Glass Systems FIT ShowGlass Systems, the UK’s largest independent sealed unit manufacturer, has recorded a huge success at this year’s FIT Show, with over 150 new leads collected throughout the three days of exhibition.

FIT Show visitors were tempted with a one-off special offer of 50% off Climate conservatory roof glass and a special price for decorative glass, both of which attracted a lot of interest from fabricators and installers alike.

The decorative glass options include coloured, neutral and bevelled designs, while the Climate conservatory roof glass is available in a range of different styles, each one offering benefits such as reduced glare from the sun, self-cleaning and thermal efficiency. New clients can take advantage of the special price reduction until the end of June.

Following the recent opening of a new factory in Peterborough, FIT Show was the perfect opportunity for Glass Systems to connect with fabricators and installers located in the eastern region of the country.

Kevin Pearce, national sales manager of Glass Systems, commented: “This year’s Show has been an excellent experience for Glass Systems. Aside from meeting over 150 potential new clients, we also had the chance to catch up with our existing customers and present our latest innovations. We had a permanently busy stand and we’re expecting a high number of conversions following the show”.

Peterborough factory is all Glass Systems go!

The UK’s largest sealed unit manufacturer, the Glass Systems Group, has opened a new 40,000 sq ft factory in Peterborough and despite being open less than a month, is already manufacturing an impressive 3,000 units per week.

Called Glass Systems East Anglia, the new division is headed up by long established IGU sales director Mervyn Raby and production manager Khaled Elleboudy. The site is equipped with 2 Lenhardt Bystronic IGU lines, one of which is capable of producing units as large as 4000mts by 2700mts, while the other has a tandem gas press capable of producing units at high speed. Lisec of Austria have supplied all cutting and bending machinery.

Sales director Mervyn Raby comments: “The first phase of our plan is to supply sealed units into Essex, Norfolk and East Anglia area on a daily basis, and to deliver into cities like Norwich twice a day with a special delivery service for urgent remakes.

“Phase 2 will be to establish a northern route up the A1 to cities like Barnsley, Sheffield, Leeds and other large northern cities. It will start with a three day a week service and depending on demand will hopefully have a daily delivery into these areas. The final phase will be to venture further north to the Sunderland and Newcastle areas.”

Glass Systems EA will manufacture the same products it already produces in other factories, including soft coat Eco pane sealed units, as well as decorative glass options.

Production manager Khaled Elleboudy discusses factory volumes and equipment in more detail: “We are planning to introduce a third IGU production line but we have not decided if this will be for domestic IGU’s or Climate roof glass production as of yet. If we do decide to focus on domestic IGU’s, our target will be to manufacture 25,000 units per week. In the meantime we are gearing up for the large task of installing a Tamglass 2448 Pro Con Furnace, which is due to go live later in the year.”

The Glass Systems Group managing director John Wood concluded: “With production throughout the rest of the Group currently just under 50,000 sealed units per week, our target of 70,000 per week should be achievable in the next couple of years, keeping Glass Systems well ahead in the UK IGU market.”

Change of Policy: Remake Lead Times

Dear Customer

In order for Glass Systems Group to continue to offer the upmost in terms of quality and service, I would like to bring your attention to the following policy change with immediate effect.

From today, all replacement sealed units ordered on ‘Day 1’ will be delivered on ‘Day 3’, for eg. a replacement sealed unit ordered on a Monday, would be delivered on a Wednesday (or your next delivery date after the 48 hour period has passed).

This will assist our Production Department in ordering, manufacturing and quality checking any replacement sealed units through our processes, as opposed to rushing through the replacement sealed unit which no doubt be under greater scrutiny than the original sealed unit by your end customer.

On behalf of Glass Systems Group, I appreciate your understanding in regards to the above policy change, and hope that you understand the reasons why we have made the above changes to the way in which we operate.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself or your designated Sales Executive who will be happy to assist.

Kind Regards

 

Kevin Pearce

National Sales Manager
