GlassParts.co.uk, one of the largest online suppliers of tools, fittings and consumables to the glass, window, architectural and kitchen and bathroom industries, is delighted to note that its first year of trading in the UK market has produced significant growth.
The company’s history stretches much further, however, having been established by Owner Kieran Costello Snr in 1988 as Moneygall Glazing Accessories, Ireland. The business now boasts strong partnerships with some of the world’s best recognised manufacturers, as well as an impressive 6,000 stock lines. GlassParts.co.uk was launched in style as the UK specific arm of the business at the very first FIT Show exhibition in April last year, where it was warmly welcomed by the industry.
Sales and Marketing Manager, Kieran Costello Jnr has been involved with the company since its early stages in Moneygall, and has been instrumental in establishing GlassParts.co.uk. He explains: “We have steadily seen a lift in demand for what we do in the UK market, so we needed a base here in order to ensure that this demand was met, and importantly, within the fast timescales that customers expect.
“We set up GlassParts.co.uk as an all-encompassing online portal where UK customers can buy our products, with the added reassurance of 48 hour lead times. There has been a huge migration over the last decade, from glass processors who prefer to buy their tools, fixings and consumables online. However, we firmly believe that this needn’t mean a drop in the levels of personal service and expertise. Anyone who calls us with an enquiry will find the entire team well versed in their product information. We don’t simply memorise catalogue numbers, so if you are not sure what you require for any given project, speak to us and we will recommend the best solution for you.
“We look forward to celebrating our first year with some exciting new product launches designed to be ‘sexy’ yet modular and easier to fit for installers, which we will be showcasing all these at this year’s FIT Show. We don’t want to give too much away at this stage, but look out for more information very soon.”
