A glazing company’s milestone 10th year in business culminated in it winning its biggest public sector contract to date.
Central Glass and Windows, based in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, was founded in 2010 by father-and-son team David and Gareth Dunn and their two business partners Dean Simpson and Adrian Mellor.
The company specialises in the supply and installation of UPVC windows and doors as well as window filming and repairs and secondary glazing.It works with fast-food restaurants chains, councils, colleges, schools, architects and builders across the UK in the domestic housing, commercial and public sector markets, and has a 24-hour call-out service to replace broken windows for customers within a 25-mile radius of Stoke-on-Trent.
And Central Glass has continued to grow despite the pandemic, having invested in excess of £100,000 in new state-of-the-art machinery in 2020 to help it diversify into new markets, and taking on two new apprentices.
Now the Broom Street business is planning to recruit further qualified installers in the coming months after landing a new contract to fabricate and install 350 aluminium windows and doors at a primary school in Wednesbury.
Gareth Dunn said: “Having our in-house manufacturing capability has ensured that the company has continued to move forward. We can ensure that we always have the right aluminium frames made to exact specifications whenever needed and no longer have to rely on external suppliers.
“Our fitters also work with UPVC and wooden frames, so that we can meet all customer requirements. We are continually looking to innovate, offering new products and focusing on customer service.”
