Expansion for Fountainbridge Glass




Edinburgh-based double glazing and conservatory manufacturer Fountainbridge Glass has relocated to larger premises. The company attributes part of this expansion to the fact the company is differentiating itself.

“One of these differentiators is Edgetech Super Spacer®, explains Jim Hickman, Managing Director of Fountainbridge. “We have been using this warm edge spacer system for three years in certain projects, but it didn’t take us long to realise the full potential of Super Spacer. Within six months we had converted 100% because it enabled us to increase our production by 25% as well as enhancing the appearance of our windows. Our customers were all for the change as it enabled them to offer something different which puts them in a good position against their competitors.”

By using Edgetech, Fountainbridge achieved EN1279 Part 2. Part 3 is now on the agenda. “We now have 30 employees and a 6,000 sq ft premise,” continues Jim, “Although EN1279 Part 2 is not compulsory at the moment, we wanted to be ahead of the game and using Super Spacer enables us to do so.” Andy Jones, Sales Director and General Manager of Edgetech UK and Ireland comments: “It’s great that Edgetech is making such an impact on our customers’ businesses, enabling them to expand and grow. The warm edge message is spreading fast as more and more companies wake up to the benefits of Super Spacer.”
