[23 JUL 98] DEELEY PROPERTIES PRESS RELEASE
Solaglas Choses Coventry

Glass giant Saint Gobain-Solaglas is expanding its operation in Coventry and creating new jobs.

The firm, one of the leading distributors, processors and installers of flat glass in the UK, is taking over 21,000 sq ft on the Leofric Business Park.

Deeley Properties is creating high-tech offices and workshops to house an aluminium fabrication and structural glass business in a 1.5 million development.

Solaglas, which is part of the Saint Gobain group - the world's largest building materials producer - has been in Herald Way for 30 years and has relocated its corporate headquarters to Coventry from Berkshire.

Business Manager Michael Jobson said:

"We have collaborated with Deeley Properties many times over the years and have an extremely good relationship with them.

"The new building will further consolidate our presence in Coventry which has a long and successful past. It is a considerable investment for the company and there will be a number of jobs created."

The new building will have access on to Progress Way and will face on to the city's Eastern By-pass.

Peter Deeley, chairman of Deeley Properties, said:

"We are delighted to be working with Solaglas again. This particular site is adjacent to the Eastern By-pass and therefore very high profile. The new building will reflect the reputation and standing Solaglas has in its field.

"Leofric Business Park has proved very successful and we are continuing to talk to several companies who have expressed an interest in moving into, or from within, the city."

Sophie Westrope, of the Coventry Centre For Investment, welcomed the news:

"We are delighted Solaglas has decided to expand within Coventry.

"We are constantly trying to attract investment to Coventry but at the same time we want to make sure that successful companies have the chance to grow within the city.

"The fact that Deeley Properties is also a long-established Coventry name makes it even better."
