Major discount retailer project

AB Glass was awarded a contract by Kier Construction to complete works for discount retailer Trago Mills. The project is based in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.

This will be Trago Mills’ first store in Wales, which is planned to open by Easter 2018. The retailer has three stores based in Cornwall and Devon.   

AB Glass has been enlisted by Kier to undertake the installation of AA100 curtain wall screens, AA540 windows and doors, as well as AA720 and AA190 doors at the site, located at Swansea Road, Merthyr Tydfil. The contract is worth £900,000 to the Swansea-based company.

Design works have already been completed by AB Glass at the new store, with installation works currently underway.

Alan Brayley, managing director at AB Glass, said: “Trago Mills will be a great addition to Merthyr Tydfil and create hundreds of jobs, which is very positive for the region. We look forward to seeing the progress of the site as we continue with the installation stages.”
