Reaching your 50th anniversary is a notable achievement for any company, and in light of this, Stevenage Glass is using this momentous year to blend the old with the new to show just how far they’ve come since 1966.
Owner and managing director Kim King commented:
“Throughout the last 50 years, we’ve seen many changes as the company has flourished and expanded, including moving to larger premises on Cavendish Road after we outgrew our starter premises on Argyle Way, and we haven’t looked back since! Even after the move, we’ve already made a couple of extensions to keep up with the demands of the growth of our business even more.”
Stevenage Glass began to extend their product range further to better accommodate for the needs of their ever-growing customer base, with their range now including a wide selection of glass products for interior home improvement for bathrooms, kitchens and living areas.
These new additions complement their core services, such as emergency glazing, secondary glazing, window repair and glass cutting, all of which have grown and developed over the last five decades.
As a founding member of the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), Stevenage Glass offer an impeccable standard of work, consistently meeting all industry standards across the board, and their affiliation with GGF further serves as an example of their commitment to the industry and the standard of work they do.
Nigel Rees, GGF Chief Executive, commented:
“Congratulations to Stevenage Glass on their 50th Anniversary. They have been with the GGF since the very beginning of the Federation and their attention to high quality and service has obviously been an integral part of their success. This year is a special year for all at the company and the GGF wishes them all the best with their celebrations.”
Part of Stevenage’s celebrations include the launch of updated branding. As a testament to the company’s hard work and the quality of their products and services that have carried them through the last five decades, the company worked with fellow GGF Member Adtrak Ltd to create a style that celebrated their past and incorporated a glass element to symbolise their expertise in the product.
Stevenage Glass decided to resist the temptation to modernise as much as possible to make the brand feel completely new, feeling that this would be missing the point – after all, reaching their 50th anniversary is an impressive achievement! And here is the finished product:
The final look is minimal and modern while also echoing the way things used to be, combining a new, technologically advanced feel with the timeless quality of an old, experienced business. Simple lines are used to make glass pane-like shapes, and a light, understated colour scheme creates a theme that runs throughout the company’s branding.
Owner Kim King spoke on the company’s future:
“After an extremely successful first 50 years, Stevenage Glass is setting the bar high to make the next 50 even better with further progression and plans for the future – so watch this space!
One thing is for sure: we will always remain Stevenage’s original glass manufacturers and heritage glaziers. On behalf of the company I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our staff and customers who have remained loyal and supported us throughout the years; we wouldn’t be here celebrating our success today if it weren’t for you!”
We’re sure that over the years you’ll be hearing more about the brand, as well as more about how they got to become one of the industry’s leading experts.
