Glass and aluminium specialist races ahead with anniversary celebrations

CUMBERNAULD glass and aluminium specialist Cube Glass has celebrated the firm’s 10th anniversary with a day at the races.

18 employees and closely-related sub-contractors joined founder and MD Gary Thorn on an overnight trip to Chester before heading to the racecourse the next day. There they enjoyed a flutter at the popular Roman Day, a flat race meeting which celebrates the connection between the track and its walled cathedral city and the ancient Romans.

Gary Thorn said, “We have a front-running team at Cube Glass and I wanted to show my appreciation for the huge contribution they have made to the company over the past 10 exciting and rewarding years. Although I established the business in 2004 as a safety net, we didn’t start trading until 2012 and, despite all the interruptions of the Covid years, this year seemed like the appropriate moment to kick back a bit and celebrate.

“I would like to pay tribute to my team, who have shown dedication, commitment and real skill in their diverse roles, and also to the sub-contractors who work with us on a regular basis and respect our standards and commitment to customer satisfaction. They are all winners.”

Cube Glass has recently partnered with French design and engineering specialist Bel’M, as an addition to its existing supplier relationships with specialists such as Senior Architectural Systems, Metal Technology and Schüco.

The firm has also invested £600,000 in a new factory – double the size of Cube Glass’s old premises – and will shortly open a new showroom.
