Frameless Glass Curtains to pitch Rochester Airport site move to Medway Council's Alan Jarrett

By Chris Britcher

A business which has fitted its product for Premier League football clubs and luxury cruise liners, says it hoping to move into new premises in order to double its staff numbers and cope with increased demand.

Owner Gary Beresford, who runs Frameless Glass Curtains (FGC) with son Paul, wants to move its base from Revenge Road in Lordswood by buying land on the site of Rochester Airport.

The firm is hoping to convince Medway Council it should be allowed to move to the site and will present its case to the authority's leader Cllr Alan Jarrett when he visits its existing base.

FGC manufactures and supplies bespoke frameless double glazed curtain systems that are in demand all over the world.

Customer include private homes, luxury cruise liners and even Manchester United FC’s training ground.

It has clients across the US, Europe and the Caribbean and has a licensing agreement with a firm in Australia.

Gary Beresford explained: "We supply a world-class, patented product and are struggling to meet demand from our current premises.

"We want to stay here in Medway and I know we could take our workforce from 22 to 45 or 50 within a few years. We just need more space – at the moment we are at full capacity and cannot keep up with demand.

“We want Medway to be proud of what we have achieved and we are delighted that Cllr Jarrett has agreed to see the product for himself."
