Highway Glass & Locks is opening a number of new branches in the south of England, Newcastle, Glasgow and London.

“The opening of the proposed new branches will allow fitters to spend less time driving and more time actually doing survey and installations,” said managing director, Philip Milburn.

The first of the planned new depots opened last October in Camberley, Surrey in order to support Highway's Oxford and West London branches.

Next in the pipeline is a branch south of Plymouth, due to open later this month, which will supplement the company's Exeter branch.

The Newcastle depot is also planned to be up and running by early April, easing pressure from the existing Teesside depot and providing comprehensive coverage in these areas.
