Interior glass solution experts Indeglas has appointed two senior managers to director level.

Derek Johnston has been appointed operations director and Iain McAlpine has been made commercial director at Indeglas, a word which translates from Danish as “inside glass”.

The recently-rebranded firm has supplied interior glass solutions to many of Scotland’s most high-profile new buildings, including City of Glasgow College City Campus, the Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) at the University of Strathclyde and the headquarters of INEOS in Grangemouth.

For the past 17 years the company has traded from its Cumbernauld base as Deko Scotland.

Derek is a graduate of the University of Strathclyde in chemical engineering and has 25 years’ experience in contracts management. He holds a range of health and safety qualifications related to the internal glass and glazing systems sector and is recognised for his strengths in planning and coordinating multiple projects under demanding conditions.

Iain, a quantity surveyor by profession, also has 25 years of business experience and is known as a highly effective facilitator who applies his knowledge and enthusiasm to provide clients with a first class service.

Indeglas founder and managing director, Jeanette MacIntyre, said: “Derek has worked with me for almost twelve years and Iain for over three years so I know very well the qualities they bring to our business and the drive they possess to take Indeglas further along the expansion route.

“As the recently appointed exclusive supplier of the Deko of Denmark product range not only in Scotland but also across the UK and Ireland, Iain and Derek will play a pivotal role and I am delighted to welcome them to our board.

“Indeglas is our way of reflecting our deep respect for the well-recognised and successful Danish design philosophy, ‘form follows function,’ while allowing a distinct brand to come to the fore. I want Indeglas to be the name on everyone’s lips in the construction industry when it comes to internal glass applications.”

Indeglas products are already approved and available in RIBA BIM Library, Royal Institute of British Architects Business Information Modelling library, NBS Plus and RIBA Product Selector.

In addition, Deko of Denmark has created an intranet which encourages shared detailing of successful building projects worldwide and this is now accessible to the UK and Ireland markets through engagement with the Indeglas team.
