News: Major glazing contractor chooses Rotherham


A major glazing contractor has chosen South Yorkshire as the location for their new national headquarters and call centre operation.

Greenberg Glass and Glazing Ltd will be based in a modern 11,000 Sq Ft unit at Kea Park Close, Hellaby, Rotherham , and will also hold operational glass stocks, and offer supply and cut services. The company will employ 30 people initially, with plans to increase this number to 80 by the end of the year.

Greenberg provide a comprehensive range of glazing services, from emergency property securing and re-glazing to new works contract glazing.

Customers include British Heart Foundation and Rowlands Pharmacy and the company has recently secured contracts at the new Hilton Hotel in Liverpool and for Slaters Menswear in their flagship store in Manchester, on behalf of Nexus retail interiors.

Greenberg Glass and Glazing Ltd has been formed, following the purchase of Greenberg Glass and EG Glass Ltd, by a management team led by John Askew, previous owner and managing director of EG Glass Ltd.

Mr Askew said: "We realised that we needed a centrally located location for the call centre and head office, primarily servicing South Yorkshire and with excellent connection to the motorway network.

"The Sheffield / Rotherham area was chosen after considering Leeds, Nottingham, and West Midlands as its central location gives good coverage to the North, South and East of the country. Another major consideration is the quality of staff which, from previous experience we knew to be available in this area."

Greenberg were helped to find the ideal location in the area by the Advanced Manufacturing: Sheffield Region team; a joint project set up by Creative Sheffield and Rotherham Investment & Development Office (RiDO) with Yorkshire Forward funding.
