Hull's EYG secures three capital deals worth more than £3.5m

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 27 Mar 2017

Hull glazing specialist EYG Commercial is celebrating after securing three major contracts near London within a matter of days – bringing more than £3.5m of new work to the business.

The firm, which enjoyed its most successful trading year in 2016, with its order book up more than 30 per cent on the previous calendar year, secured all the contracts in the final week of February.

Among them is a £1.74m deal with SD Samuels (Special Projects) Ltd to provide triple-glazing window systems for two connecting hotels at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 4 – the Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express Hotel.

The business will also be working on a £1.6m contract for Errigal Ltd in Southwark, on the third stage of a huge £160m Quebec Way housing development for project leaders Quadrant Construction.

Work will also be completed for McLaren Construction, which have been appointed to oversee developer Lendlease's £45m residential development in Wandsworth.

All three London contracts were secured on the back of long-term negotiations, led by business development manager Bernard Hastie, and will now be overseen by commercial director Steve Swallow.

Mr Swallow said: "It is very pleasing to have secured three major contracts near London within a matter of days of one another and is another example of how EYG is having great success in the capital."We have carved a reputation for delivering new products that meet the highest specifications at a good price, and that is proving very attractive for developers and contractors in the south.

"All of our windows and doors are Secured By Design accredited, recognition that our products are the best on the market in terms of deterring and preventing crime, which is obviously a major selling point.

"Our ability to manufacture the products at our own facility in Hull, and provide and fit at a better rate then competitors further south, is also proving very beneficial.

"The EYG brand and vans are becoming an ever-increasing sight in London, and that is great news for us and a great reflection on the city of Hull and its workforce."

The work at the two Heathrow Airport hotels, which will have 750 bedrooms in total, follows on from a £1.2m contract last year with contractor S&T (UK) Ltd for a 620-bedroom Premier Inn development at the site.

Teams from EYG are expected at the Heathrow site in May, by which time the business will also be working on the contract in Southwark, where its glazing expertise has been called upon in all stages of the project, which has seen 368 new homes provided alongside retail units, a gym and a community centre on disused land.

In Wandsworth, a £218,000 contract for EYG Commercial will see teams on site between May and October to fit 42 sets of bi-folding doors on new properties, which are a mix of townhouses and apartments.

EYG Commercial, part of the EYG Group of businesses, last year secured the largest single contract in its history, a £5.13m deal to glaze one of the UK's biggest care homes for the St Monica Trust in Bristol.
