Fifteen years of growth for Heritage Glass

A leading Shropshire glazing firm is celebrating after reaching its 15th successful year in business and having just invested a five-figure sum in new showrooms.

Heritage Glass, of Monkmoor in Shrewsbury, was formed by David Randall after he finished his job as managing director for a large window manufacturer aged 60, and having decided that he was far too young to retire, set up his own business which has gone from strength to strength ever since.

David’s son Anthony, who had nearly two decades experience in the motor trade, joined the company and brought his wealth of ideas and experience to help the business grow and move forward.

Heritage Glass has continued its relationship with top industry extrusion company Kommerling and is now benefitting from national television advertising from its associates The Plastic Window Federation and Planotherm Windows, having already noticed a large increase in requests for its products.

David Randall said: “We have a wide variety of staff members, many of which have been with us for some considerable time and we recently made long service presentations to several of them to recognise the contribution they make to the firm’s on-going success.

“I am now 74 years old and colleague Nick Heyhoe is 77 and still going strong, so together with the younger members of the team we are fortunate to have a great deal and variety of experience throughout the company.

“We have seven teams of qualified installers who cover Shropshire and the surrounding areas and are currently broadening our range of products to cater for an increased demand for bi-fold doors, energy efficient glass and garage doors.”

Heritage Glass lists Shrewsbury School, the Fire Service, Shropshire Council, Bedstone School, Link 51 in Telford and Ellesmere College amongst its customers.
