Cumbernauld precision manufacturer enters partnership with French door designer

CUMBERNAULD-based glass and aluminium specialist Cube Glass has announced it has entered into a new partnership with French design and engineering specialist Bel’M, maker of bespoke entrance doors.

The ‘potentially lucrative’ move will see Cube Glass become the lead authorised supplier in Scotland of Bel’M’s range of products, which are said to combine aesthetics, innovation and technical performance.

It is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of supplier relationships which already includes Senior Architectural Systems, Metal Technology and Schüco.

The new alliance comes on top of the completion of a £600,000 investment in a new factory – double the size of Cube Glass’s old premises – and the imminent opening of a new showroom.

Gary Thorn, Cube Glass founder and MD, said, “We are delighted to have established this new partnership with a brand which has been innovating in wood, aluminium, steel and mixed materials for some 35 years now. Bel’M offers its customers, traders and specialised distributors across the UK and Europe a wide range of multi-material entry doors that combine creativity, technology, quality and sustainable management.

“We had been looking for an entrance door partner for some time but none had the range we were looking for until we came into contact with Bel’M, and we will be happy to promote its products in our new showroom.”

Bel’M has four manufacturing plants, two in the Loire-Atlantique in western France and two north-west of Lyon in central France.

Cube Glass focuses on curtain walling, doors, windows, glass roofing systems and shop fronts as well as bullet, bomb and blast resistant glass. The firm employs 14 full-time staff and two apprentices and is actively recruiting at the moment.
