News: Solaglas secure major contract with Carillion


Rotherham-based Solaglas Installation has secured a new sole supplier agreement with leading support services and construction company, Carillion plc.

The framework agreement will see the Saint-Gobain-owned business supply façade glass systems and sealed units for Carrillion's construction projects.

In addition, Solaglas has joined Carillion's list of approved sub-contractors for the design and installation of curtain-walling façades.

This is the first major contract announcement since the French company merged two operations and expanded into a new 60,000 sq m headquarters at Brookfields Park, Manvers.

Solaglas Installation specialises in the installation and maintenance of all glass products and emergency glazing for the construction, property maintenance and insurance markets.

From their HQ and contact centre in Rotherham, the business controls a nationwide network of directly-employed engineers and approved glaziers through an innovative workflow management system. The result is the most efficient, cost-effective and robust emergency glass and frame repair and replacement service in the market.
The new framework agreement is the first of its kind for Carillion and for the glazing industry.

Kieren Curry, global supply chain manager at Carillion, said: "Innovation was one of the key reasons why we chose Solaglas as a national partner for our glazing envelope requirements.

"Solaglas has proved itself to be flexible and responds quickly to our fast-moving pace, listening to our needs, while coming up with innovative options that often encompass more than one of their business streams.

"As a company, Solaglas can do this whilst driving the expected quality of the "Envelope Evolution" process and add value at many levels of the supply chain."

Ian Davy, Director – Installation, at Solaglas added: "We are delighted to work with such as prominent player in the market. Stability, efficiency and a "can-do" approach are qualities that we believe Carillion were after from a supply partner.

"This relationship is testament to the extensive investment Solaglas is making in products and services to secure our leadership position in the industry."
