Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Glazing industry is highly fragmented. The four largest operators, Glassolutions Saint-Gobain Ltd, Lindner Facades Ltd, Permasteelisa (UK) Ltd and Evander Glazing and Locks Ltd, are estimated to account for just 15.3% of industry revenue. These larger operators are active across the United Kingdom, but the overall industry is characterised by its many small-scale, regional contractors. According to the Office for National Statistics, approximately 94.8% of industry enterprises employ fewer than 10 employees and 84.7% employ fewer than five employees, indicating the fragmented nature of the industry.
