Oakland Glass Ltd is proud to celebrate 32 years of manufacturing sealed units while keeping its focus firmly where it counts – quality products with a quality service to match.
“Our strapline has always been ‘Quality at the heart of our glass’,” explains Tina Moorhouse, Managing Director of Oakland Glass, “but never has it been more important to ignore the distractions of the wider market and stay focussed on delivering quality products and quality service to customers to whom quality matters. Of course, it’s imperative to stay abreast of market conditions and the issues that affect your own business and that of your customers, but that doesn’t mean taking your eye off the ball when it comes to quality.
“Even though we’re celebrating 32 years in business, we are still investing in continuous improvement. We’re a volume manufacturer so need automation to produce the number of units we make, but most importantly, it’s our people that ensure we deliver quality time and time again. We recognise this and as well as investing in products and machinery, we always prioritise training and investing in our people. We have one apprenticeship already in place with more to follow and as of September we will have a dedicated in-house trainer to train our factory operatives on an ongoing basis.
“With a 32-year history there’s not much we haven’t experienced but we’re proud that through the tough times and the good, we have kept our focus where it matters, and that’s on quality. It has served us well for the last 32 years and will remain at the heart of everything we do for the next 32.”
