Oakland Glass said it received a particularly warm welcome from visitors at this year’s FIT Show for setting out its stall to promote best practice in the sector.

Tina Moorhouse, managing director at Oakland Glass, said: “We are regular exhibitors at the FIT Show, but this year especially we met a lot of companies looking for a supplier that can deliver quality products and a quality service to match. It sounds so simple, but a lot of the fabricators we spoke to at the show are struggling to get everything they need from their suppliers.

“With such a long history of doing what we do, we understand how to deliver what our customers need. We build long-lasting relationships and work closely with each of our customers, big and small, in a way best suited to their needs. We’re also not afraid to invest in people, products or our premises to stay ahead of the ever-changing market requirements.

“We never rest on our laurels either. We continuously invest to improve our offering and at the FIT Show launched our latest initiative, The Oakland Glass Academy. The Academy encompasses all the good work we continue to do to train our people through apprenticeships and NVQs across the business. Everyone is talking about the problems we face as an industry in attracting new people and the skills shortage upon us, but we want to promote the fact we’re doing our bit, by actively working on the solution.”
