TABLE 40: PRINCIPAL EUROPEAN & OTHER FOREIGN BESPOKE COMMERCIAL GLAZING CONTRACTORS IN THE UK

Since 2008, demand for commercial glazing has been in steady decline, but is still worth a substantial estimated £2.04bn at installed prices in 2012. In 2011 and 2012, the rate of decline slowed down to some extent due to improvements in the Central London office construction sector and also by the impact of the 2012 London Olympics.

Over the short term, a tentative recovery in the London office sector and signs of potential demand for new Grade A space in certain other cities – e.g. Leeds and Birmingham – could stimulate growth for commercial windows and curtain wall from 2014. While the DfE capital budget for schools is decreasing, there are strong indications of increasing investment in construction among universities and scientific research infrastructure.

However, other end use markets are currently showing less promise; in healthcare the shift from building large hospitals towards primary care facilities will mean less demand for curtain wall, roof glazing and windows. The decline in the High Street and in retail parks will continue, as online shopping continues to penetrate the market. There are some major retail warehouse developments in the pipeline but demand for windows etc is low level.

In terms of product sectors, our estimates indicate that the largest segment by value is commercial windows, with an estimated share of 54%. Curtain wall and ground floor treatments follow with similar shares while roof glazing has the smallest share.

In the aluminium systems supply sector, there appears to be a decreasing level of market concentration with the 10 largest accounting for ~70% of this market. Among these are the longer established companies such as Sapa Building Systems, Kawneer, Schuco, Technal, Smart System, Reynaers and Senior Architectural Systems. Others significantly increasing market shares in recent years include Aluk GB and Metal Technology.

The reduced level of activity in the commercial glazing market has led to a significant contraction among fabricators and installers with several larger players ceasing trading. Among the leading companies still trading in 2013 are Solaglas Contracting, Oskomera Facades, M Price, Dudley’s Architectural Aluminium, Dane Architectural Systems, Norking Aluminium, Alumet Systems, HW Architectural, Prater, English Architectural Glazing, Lakesmere and Red Architectural.

The bespoke façade and roof glazing sector is dominated by European contractors although the depressed office newbuild market has resulted in widespread decline sin turnovers since 2007. Some firms have regular presence in the UK e.g. those in the Permasteelisa Group (now ultimately owned by the Japanese firm Lixil Corporation), Lindner Facades, Structal, Yuanda and Metallbau Fruh. Others have a more sporadic presence e.g. Seele, Focchi, GIG Facades and Felix.

After Yuanda a 2nd Chinese curtain wall company entered the UK market, in 2012, trading as UK subsidiary Far East Façade UK.
In other product sectors there has been relatively little change other than some smaller companies going put of business. In the automated doors sector, the leading suppliers are still Assa Abloy Entrance Systems, Dorma, Boon Edam, IR Dor-O-Matic, Gilgen Door Systems and Geze.
