The history of Gary Cox (Glazing) Ltd

Gary Cox trained as a glazier from leaving school, but in 1985 aged 23 he decided that he would prefer to work for himself and started his own business from a small flat in

He moved to a house adding an office to the rear, and used the garage as a workshop so that he could cope with the way the business was growing. Wanting to take advantage of his business success, and to expand further, he then sub-contracted as a window installer.

In 1990 he employed his first apprentice and invested in more equipment, a better van and he rented larger workshop premises. By this time be was able to offer a fully comprehensive 24 hour glazing service doing anything from a pane of glass 6 inches square up to a whole shop front, plus supplying and fitting UPVC windows, doors and conservatories. The success of the business meant that another apprentice was taken on in 1993 followed by a third a year later.

In 1995 Gary felt he would be more accessible to the public if he opened proper shop premises, and this he did in May of that year. The staff grew in line with the expansion of the company and in September 1997 the offices and showroom were opened. Gary now had 8 employees and 3 fully equipped vans.

In January 2003 Gary had to make another decision and that was to take the business to another level, which meant a move to larger premises. The Severn Road premises could no longer accomodate the size of the business and the operation it was running. It was also at this time that Gary decided to change the business to a limited company, and on May the 19th 2003 he moved the business to new premises and started trading as Gary Cox (Glazing) Ltd.

The business went from strength to strength, evident by the number of jobs being fulfilled, both residential and commercial contracts.

It wasn't long before the business acquired newer and bigger premises in the form of the current workshop and offices supported by the Oldmixon Unit.
