Can you dig it? Building business gets specialist glazing on board

Article date: 26 September 2006

Hampshire-based construction firm, CollardDemolition, was left with a hole to fill when the front screen ofa digger smashed.

Luckily, managing director, Rob Collard – driver for TeamRAC in the British Tour Car Championships – knew exactly whocould fill it: RAC Auto Windscreens.

Perhaps more widely known for replacing car windscreens, RACAuto Windscreens can also provide specialist glazing services whena non-standard or bespoke piece of glass is needed – such aswith Rob’s digger.

Rob says: “Downtime is costly, so being able to get theglass on a digger replaced quickly is essential.”

RAC Auto Windscreens has a nationwide team of expert glasstechnicians, backed by a specialist manufacturing facility andcentrally-managed job scheduling for maximum efficiency. For moreinformation contact 0800 443399.
