Glass specialists combine in new company
Two leading figures in the window and glass industries have joined forces to form the Saveheat Group.
Under the leadership of Alex Gray and Colin Torley, it becomes the first company in Scotland to manufacture timber, aluminium, PVCu and glass products for trade installers, the commercial and construction industries.
Majority owner is the Easdale family, whose other business interests includes ownership of Scotland’s largest independent bus operator, McGill’s.
The announcement follows the recent consolidation of Merlin Network (Scotland) into the group along with the formation of Blairs Aluminium Systems in 2016. The group also comprises Saveheat Glass and Blairs Timber Windows.
Managing director, Alex Gray, described the development as “significant” for the businesses.
The company will target the whole of the United Kingdom said sales and operations director, Colin Torley.
The group employs 150 staff across four manufacturing locations in the central belt of Scotland. It has a turnover of £16 million.
