Goodbye SWISSPACER’s Vic De Costa

FIT Show in April on Stand 324

Vic De Costa

SWISSPACER UK Sales Manager Vic De Costa is retiring in May. Vic is a well-liked, familiar face in the glass and glazing industry. He’s worked with Saint-Gobain for 29 years! His last five have been spent helping to grow SWISSPACER, the market leading, warm edge spacer bar brand. Helping SWISSPACER increase its lead as the No. 1 warm edge spacer bar is a fitting finale to a long and successful career.

Vic comments: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Saint Gobain and can’t believe how time has flown. I’ve made some great friends in the industry and been fortunate to work in some fantastic roles. Over the last five years I’m proud to have contributed to SWISSPACER’s success as No.1 in the market and even helped extend its lead. In the last 12 months I’ve been passing over the reins to John Cooper and Andrew Everett and I’m sure they will continue to take SWISSPACER forward and develop new opportunities for growth.”

Managing Director Andreas Geith adds: “It’s been great fun working with Vic. Everyone who knows Vic, knows you can’t miss him when he’s around! His positive attitude and determination to succeed has helped secure SWISSPACER’s position in the UK today. We’ll miss him and wish him all the best in his retirement.”

Vic will continue to work with SWISSPACER until the end of May and will be active on SWISSPACER’s stand at the FIT Show in April. Come and say hello on Stand 324.

Swisspacer

Formed in 1998 Swisspacer is part of Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions. The company has experienced massive growth in the UK over the past 2 years. Its no-investment needed price benefit has been a key advantage that has attracted sealed unit manufacturers and window fabricators and fuelled its growth.

The manufacturing and head office is in Switzerland and a second manufacturing facility is established in Germany. Much investment is taking place to expand production capacity to ensure that Swisspacer is able to satisfy the dramatic ongoing growth in demand for its high performance warm edge spacer bar products.

Swisspacer has a growing network of leading sealed unit manufacturers in the UK and Ireland using its products, including Solaglas, Pilkington, Carey Glass, Supaseal, Custom Glass, Uniglaze2, Glass Systems, Clayton Glass, System 3 and Hollow Seal among others.

Swisspacer exactly matches the shape and dimensions of aluminium spacers, and being rigid and self supporting it handles in a similar way. And because there is no need to invest in expensive new machinery, it makes it very easy to get up and running with warm edge. Automated solutions are however available from Lisec, Saint-Gobain Seva and Rottler and Ruediger.

Independent tests conducted by IFT Rosenheim, the leading European independent fenestration research and test facility, showed that Swisspacer V had the best PSI values of all the other leading brands of spacer bar that were submitted for testing. Using Swisspacer thermal insulation (U-value) can be improved by up to 20%. Swisspacer V and Swisspacer perform very well in the Window Energy Rating Scheme.
