Simon Tuckwell, Managing Director

Simon began working in the industry in the winter of 1988, combining carpentry and joinery at college with block release as an aluminium fabricator at Solaglas, where he worked on the factory floor until the age 23. At Solaglas he gained promotion to the design office, eventually becoming design office manager. After a period of progression in design he then moved into the contracts department, where he went on to manage the full package of works related to the aluminium and glass facades.

In 1999, after 11 years at Solaglas he decided to accept an offer from AC Yule and Son who has just moved into the North East of England, where he was one of three original employees. Initially at Yules he took on an all-encompassing role of looking after the design, production and installation, however as the Business grew he settled into contacts management. In 2006 he gained promotion as area manager of the north east where he took the business from a 4 million turn over to just under 7 million by the time he left the business in 2009.

In 2009 after 21 years of working for others in the industry, he decided to start up Glasshus Ltd, where from humble beginnings from an office in Doxford Park, Sunderland he has assisted its growth to the company that we see today.
