News: GLASSOLUTIONS announce restructure and £5m investment


GLASSOLUTIONS, part of Saint-Gobain UK, has announced that it is restructuring its contracting business that is centrally based in Rotherham.

The French-owned multinational company, which rebranded from Sologlas in 2012, brought together three separate operating divisions into its 65,000 sq ft premises at Manvers in Rotherham in 2011.

The contracting unit specialises in conception, engineering and installation of glazed façades and building envelopes. The announcement confirms investment of £5m and a restructure of its operating model.

The company, part of the Saint-Gobain group which operates in 67 countries and has over 180,000 employees, has consolidated all its functions under one business unit, and invested in 20 new team members plus additional new fabrication facilities.

Rothbiz reported in October that the firm were looking to expand into an adjacent 38,673 sq ft call centre building, known as Horizon, with plans to convert to industrial use and house the fabrication of bespoke windows and roof framing systems.


The restructure will see GLASSOLUTIONS contracting division move from a regional structure into one centralised national business with local project delivery teams. It is currently centrally based in Rotherham but has branches based throughout the UK - in Motherwell, Coventry and Bristol.

Ian Davy, group commercial director at GLASSOLUTIONS, said: "What this means for clients is that the customer experience will be greatly improved through effective and efficient centralised communication. The time was right to address the increase in demand and create a sustainable structure which will allow us to play an active role in preparing customers for the challenges of the future.

"In preparing our organisation for growth by investing in more senior people, facilities and improved processes our approach to supply chain management will also evolve to better support our vision of the future.

"We aim to provide a consistent high quality added value service for our clients. Whilst contacts and communication methods might change as part of the new structure, our service and delivery will be enhanced and our focus will very much be on maintaining strong and effective partnerships with our customers to continue to deliver an innovative product range and exceptional service."

In the UK, GLASSOLUTIONS is a £120m turnover business with 1,100 employees.
