Sheerframe windowmaker Coalville Glass has won new contracts totalling over £1 million in value in just two weeks.
The family-run Leicestershire business which specialises in serving the new build sector has seen a flood of new orders from five different house builders to supply and install windows at sites across the Midlands.
Says MD Ray Whitehorn: “We’ve been making Sheerframe windows since 1989 and have seen ups and downs in the market in the past twenty or so years. There’s no doubt that for the past couple of years the new build sector has been a tough place to be. With systems supplier L.B. Plastics, we have worked hard during that time to win business and to maintain our reputation for quality and service delivery. That hard work is clearly paying dividends as the market shows signs of recovery.”
In addition to work for Miller Homes – Coalville Glass is currently working on their impressive Miller Point development in Coventry – the team has won contracts with Persimmon Homes in Leicestershire and at two Linden Homes sites in the East Midlands. Coalville is has just been selected to supply and fit Sheerframe windows for Cameron Homes and continues to win work for Peveril Homes.

Sheerframe director David Strang says that Coalville Glass is one of many Sheerframe new build sector fabricators currently seeing an upturn in fortunes.

“The system is widely specified and we are continually introducing innovative new products and features which give the Sheerframe fabricators an added edge.

As housebuilders move towards zero carbon homes, the merits of Sheerframe windows come to the fore.”
In addition to its new build successes Coalville Glass is also reporting an upturn in its retail business locally with strong demand for the Sheerframe bi-fold doors option. The company plans to relaunch its trade operation, serving regional builders, window and conservatory installers, and is currently promoting its “service pledge” to house builder clients.
