Scottish precision manufacturer Cube Glass has entered into a strategic and potentially lucrative partnership with high-end French design and engineering specialist Bel’M, maker of bespoke entrance doors.
The Cumbernauld-based glass and aluminium specialist will become the lead authorised supplier in Scotland of Bel’M’s extensive range of products, which combine aesthetics, innovation and technical performance.
It is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of prestigious supplier relationships which already includes industry-recognised specialists such as Senior Architectural Systems, Metal Technology and Schüco.
And the new alliance comes on top of the successful 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 sophisticated new showroom which will highlight the company’s expanded range.
Gary Thorn, Cube Glass founder and Managing Director, 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 huge 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. It supplies sectors including education, health, industrial, social care, commercial property and residential homes.
Most of the company’s sales are made to major companies such as CCG, Cruden, CM Steel and Morris and Spottiswood It is nearing completion of a major contract at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh to replace windows and doors in a contract worth in excess of £1.2 million.
The firm employs 14 full time staff and two apprentices and is actively recruiting to sustain growth.
