Glass Systems investment in growth rewarded 3 October 2011 Back to news index

Investing for growth, Glass Systems was the first insulated glass manufacturer to automate production of SWISSPACEFR V units. Without the Lisec BSV 45 ANK bender it would not have been able to keep up with the soaring demand for high performance sealed units, led by the revisions to Document L of Building Regulations.

Glass Systems investment in growth rewarded

The Swansea based company, which manufactures 23,000 units a week, invested £1.2million in its growth strategy. National Sales Manager Kevin Pearce comments: “Sales of SWISSPACER units have gone from 4% to 30% as customers are selling higher energy rated windows. We offer a wide range of units and the quality has to be the best – customers are very happy with the appearance and performance of the SWISSPACER units, and we expect sales of higher energy rated products to continue. Our investment in the Lisec machinery should keep us well ahead of the field.”
