AN Eastcote glass and mirror business has bought an item of industry-leading machinery, with plans to take on increased orders, thanks to a six-figure funding package.

The funds, from HSBC, have enabled JP Glass & Décor, of Field End Road, to instal a vertical glazing machine drilling and milling machine.

It allows the specialists to add greater precision finishes to their glassware while continuing to meet bespoke customer needs.

It will also enable faster production and shorter turnaround times, which could lead to at least a 25 per cent increase in productivity.

The company now plans to take on more customers with an anticipated boost to its turnover of around 15 per cent.

JP Glass & Décor specialises in bespoke, made-to-specification shower doors.
