The business provides a “just-in-time” delivery service to its customers and manages its own logistics through a fleet of over 260 service vehicles. Metro Performance Glass’ market leadership is supported by a number of competitive advantages including its high customer service standards, manufacturing capability and scale, distribution footprint, product offering and glazing capability.
The short lead times and the customised nature of the glass products demanded by the market, make it challenging for imports to compete effectively, while the regional population distribution throughout New Zealand makes the establishment of a scale operation challenging.
During our nearly 30 years in operation, we have set operational, product and safety benchmarks in the New Zealand glass industry. The company currently employs more than 800 employees in a wide variety of roles including production, residential and commercial glazing, driving, sales, engineering, technical and support services.
