Blind ambition

The Glazerite UK Group now offers blinds from Hitech Blinds, which is celebrating its first birthday.

The company was formed by industry veteran Nigel Greening and two directors from aluminium fabricator AGF – Mike Yerrell and Michelle Scotney.

Joined by long-serving blinds expert Ian Woolley, the Hitech team set about designing integrated blinds.

Magnet-operated for easy operation, and offering BS EN 1279-accreditation robustness and weather-resistance, Hitech blinds have been cycle-tested to 10,000 cycles, and they come with a 10-year guarantee.

“It’s been a fantastic first year for us – incredibly hectic, as you’d imagine, but hugely successful, and hugely rewarding,” Michelle Scotney said.

Glazerite Group’s marketing manager Michelle Wright said: “The partnership with Hitech Blinds was formed initially because they have a blind system that met our demanding standards. We’ve got a reputation to keep, which is why we only work with the best brands in the industry. We’ll never offer our customers anything we’re not 100% happy with.

“We’ve known Ian for years now – and when he and the Hitech Blinds team came up with an innovative new design, eliminating the common problems we’ve experienced with other products, we decided we had to take a look. We were hugely impressed – it’s a perfect fit for Glazerite and our customers.”
