Morley Glass makes the switch to CENSolutions for certification

2016 was a major year for Leeds based Morley Glass and Glazing. Following a £1.5m investment into new machinery and premises move, the company now stands as the UK’s largest manufacturer of integral blinds within an insulated glass unit, from its 50,000 square foot dedicated facility.

Ian Short, Managing Director of Morley Glass and Glazing, explains: “We started trading in 1998, with just four people working out of 500 square foot. Now, almost 20 years on we are proud to be the biggest and best at what we do.

“We made the switch to CENSolutions this year as we were fed up with our previous supplier. As a loyal customer of theirs for almost 18 years it became harder and harder to work with them.  We used to pay them a lot year on year and get very little back in return.  There seemed to be lots of grey areas and everything was wrapped up in red tape.  It became impossible.  Switching to CENSolutions has been like a breath of fresh air.

“Since we engaged their services we have been delighted with the service. We have implemented a number of efficiencies they have suggested and found them to be quick to respond to any queries ourselves or our customers have had and although it wasn’t a deciding factor, making the switch has even saved us money.  CENSolutions is an industry focussed certification provider and have the industry knowledge we can call upon if needed.   They have got to know us as a business really well in a short space of time and have done lots of the work behind the scenes so we haven’t had to deal with it.  They came very highly recommended and have so far ticked all the boxes in terms of the type of provider you need when it comes to certification.”

Wayne Rogerson, Joint Managing Director of CENSolutions concludes: “All too often we meet companies who have been indoctrinated into thinking that certification has to be done with one supplier. What that means is that too many companies out there in our industry are getting poor, overpriced service.  People have the misconception that certification is a headache because these poor providers make it seem that way.  Our aim is to make certification hassle free and I am delighted to hear that Morley Glass and Glazing is a happy customer.

Rob Small, Independent Consultant at CENSolutions, responsible for managing the Morley Glass and Glazing account, concludes: “They have been a fantastic company to work with and their latest investment sets them aside from their competition. Although a relatively new account, we have already established a great relationship and we are happy to be on hand for them or their customers whenever they need us.  We wish them every success and look forward to working with them in the future.”
