Why We Founded G&L Windows
Double-glazing may not be at the top of most people’s minds but G&L Windows’ founders, Geoff Parker and Lindsey Ransley, were keen to bring the benefits of their experience and skill to Bedford and local area.
“We founded G&L Windows back in 2010 after spotting a gap in the market for a friendly, local firm who can offer customers a full windows and doors service from manufacturing through to design and installation,” says G&L Director and Office Manager, Lindsey. “Since we formed almost seven years ago we’ve gone from a small outfit with just three of us to having manufactured and successfully fitted hundreds of installations in the Bedfordshire area.”
G&L are specialists in both domestic and commercial glazing design and installation, having worked with local homeowners and business proprietors alike. All of their double-glazing projects are high quality and fully accredited by agencies such as Certass, HomePro and Secured by Design, giving their clients the confidence that their products offer security as well as style.
Lindsey and Geoff are very keen to make sure they not only provide a quality service to local homeowners but take an active part in the community.
“Our aim when setting up the business was to be deeply involved in community life, from offering young people the opportunity to take part in an apprenticeship scheme to supporting local sports clubs,” mentions Lindsey. In 2016, G&L began sponsoring a local boys’ football team the Higham Ferrers Colts and earlier this year G&L announced their sponsorship of Thurleigh Cricket Club, a successful local cricket team just two miles from their premises.
And the organisation is also fully committed to being as environmentally responsible as possible. Their team recycle all applicable components where possible and chose to supply Liniar windows which are some of the most energy efficient windows on the market.
Geoff and Lindsey are keen to continue to build on their local links and environmental responsibility in 2017 and beyond. “Later this year we’ll be launching a new section of our website which will give our customers more details about our new corporate responsibility strategy, something we both feel very strongly about,” says Lindsey.
