Mercury celebrates 20 years of Spectus partnership

Specialist trade fabricator Mercury Glazing Supplies is celebrating 20 years in business and 20 years of being a Spectus Vertical Sliding fabricator too. Steve Cross, Director at Mercury Glazing, said: “As a business, Mercury is committed to the quality of our products and to meeting the needs of our customers across all market sectors. We continue to pride ourselves on being ahead of the curve when it comes to manufacturing the specialist high-quality products our customers demand and we were one of the first fabricators to manufacture the Spectus Vertical Slider system when we started in 2002. Two decades later, the product remains as popular as ever, and we are delighted to be celebrating this milestone double anniversary.”

Steve is clear why his company is proud to have been a Spectus Vertical Slider fabricator since the beginning of its history: the product and the technical support. He commented: “The Spectus Vertical Sliding window was ahead of its time when it was first launched and remains so today. This is down to the strength of the product design, the quality and structural integrity of the system and the product’s aesthetics, all of which continue to raise the bar in Vertical Slider system design. Add in the first-class technical support from Epwin Window Systems’ in-house team, and you have a winning combination.”

Mercury manufactures both the Spectus welded and mechanically jointed Vertical Sliding windows, a combination that means it can deliver what its trade, commercial and new build customers need. The Gloucester-based business has recently made several largescale investments across the business as part of its continued growth strategy. Steve said: “Since 2020, we have doubled our turnover and remain well on track to continue to meet our growth strategy over the next four-years. We recently opened a second manufacturing plant in Gloucester, have made a considerable six-figure investment in automation machinery from Haffner and recruited several high-level internal appointments to our talented team.”

To mark the anniversary, Nic Rossano, Business Development Manager at Epwin Window Systems presented Mercury Glazing Supplies with a commemorative plaque. Nic commented: “We have worked closely with Steve, Martin and the Mercury Glazing team throughout their 20-year history. It’s a relationship that has grown year on year and we are delighted to celebrate this milestone anniversary with them.”
