COALVILLE GLASS TO CREATE 40 NEW JOBS FOLLOWING SYSTEM SWITCH

COALVILLE GLASS TO CREATE 40 NEW JOBS FOLLOWING SYSTEM SWITCH

18 Aug 2014

Successful new build specialist windowmaker Coalville Glass plans to significantly increase production as business booms following a switch of profile system.

 

The company, which employs 65 people and celebrated its fortieth anniversary last year, is hoping to expand to bigger premises as it sees demand increase for its Eurocell Eurologik70 system windows from major national house builders across the Midlands and the south of England as well as from smaller regional house building firms.

 

The expansion programme is being backed by local conservative MP Andrew Bridgen who has pledged to help Coalville Glass find the new premises it needs within the town. If things go according to plan the company could create up to forty new jobs in Coalville in the next two years, including new apprenticeships.  In 2013 alone the business took on six new apprentices, five of whom have taken on full time posts this year.

 

Says Bridgen: “Coalville Glass has a fantastic workforce and a great ethos with customer care at the heart of its philosophy, but currently its growth is being limited by the premises from which it operates. This government is pledged to help businesses like Coalville Glass to create the new jobs and prosperity within the community and I’m trying to provide real practical help to ensure that they can realise their potential.”

Coalville Glass switched to Eurocell earlier this year.  Says MD Ray Whitehorn: “The move has come at a good time as demand for new homes increases.  Critical to our success is the excellent reputation we have established with our customers, many of them major national organisations, and we are determined to maintain that quality reputation.  Despite recent six figure investment in new machinery, we are reaching capacity within the current building and hope to have moved within the next 12 months to ensure that we can meet the growing demand for our windows.”

 

Ray and his team have been impressed by the support they have received from Eurocell and the forward potential the profile switch presents. “The profile is good, easy to manufacture and widely accepted within the newbuild sector.  I have no doubt that, having made the switch, we will see new business resulting from additional house builders coming on board.” 

 

According to director Andy Whitehorn, the Coalvillle Glass team has landed contracts for seven new sites ranging from Peterborough to Stratford in the past three weeks alone.
