CAIRNS BASED GLASS AND GLAZING BUSINESS
This Cairns based locally owned glass and glazing business commenced trading in August 1992 and during that time has steadily grown to become one of Cairns’ major Glass and Glazing businesses.
The business occupies large, modern commercial premises in a prominent location within the central business district. This includes a spacious, comfortable office, a mezzanine, part of which is spare parts and the other a large lunch room which could double as a boardroom. The factory size is 380m2 and includes a 4.9 tonne overhead travelling crane which runs the length of the premises, with the capacity to receive and handle large bulk orders of glass.
As the plant and equipment schedule demonstrates, the equipment is some of the most modern in the industry, including a large, new laminate cutting table, and a Deway edging machine.
This is a turn key operation, and suitable for anyone with rudimentary people and management skills. Trained staff operate the day to day business, including trained glaziers, workshop and office managers, leaving the owner free to promote and grow the business.
