Glendale Presentation Solutions was originally set up by a gentleman named Gordon Quinn. Gordon had passion and experience. He had worked as a Territory Sales Manager for General Binding Company (GBC) in the UK for approaching 25 years when the opportunity arose to start up his own company. The name Glendale came from the street in which Gordon and his family lived, and from where Glendale Presentation Solution subsequently began trading.
Knowing products like binders, laminators and shredders as well as he did from his time at GBC Gordon focused his efforts on this area. Within just 12 months of trading Glendale had moved into a city centre premises and the blossoming business employed three full-time staff members as well as Gordon.
Over the years Glendale’s portfolio of products grew and it was a natural progression to supply other presentation equipment alongside the binding and lamination products. Guillotines, booklet makers, paper folders and a whole plethora of other finishing equipment were added to the range. Glendale, providing only the highest quality equipment, developed a strong reputation for reliability and continued to grow. When the need for larger premises became apparent the company expanded into a vacant unit next-door.
In 2007 Gordon retired. He was still a frequent and welcome visitor to Glendale until his passing in the summer of 2021. Staff loved to hear his stories from the ‘old days’. It was great to listen to what Gordon had to say, that knowledge he passed on, was priceless. He is greatly missed.
Today Glendale is run much the same as it was under Gordon - by members of his own family. Traditional values of quality products and customer services remain at the forefront. Glendale offers solutions to your print finishing needs, just like the name suggests. The product range has grown and more variations of equipment are supplied than ever before. Glendale now supplies the very best finishing machinery to a world-wide customer base. Some of our UK customers have been with the company from the start. Glendale have a customer base which includes many blue chip companies, large commercial printers, independent SMEs, Public Sector and Education customers. If you wish to have a reference, please get in contact with us.
In 2021 Glendale relocated to a premises better suited to the business. We now have a showroom to facilitate demonstrations onsite for our new and refurbished equipment. The extra space also allows us to be able to offer online demonstrations to our customers further afield.
Our team is close-nit. Staff enjoy their roles and believe in the core values of fairness and great service - it's what everyone should offer as a minimum. There are three members of our team who have each worked for Glendale for over 16 years each. Once you start, you’re hooked! We believe we have moved with the times and are very environmentally conscious. From electric vehicles to recycling of all packaging we believe even the little we can do will help the environment for the greater good. As a forward-thinking company Glendale is lucky enough to be able to help others. Charities, chosen annually, are normally close to the hearts of employees.
So that burning passion which Gordon had all those years ago still exists at Glendale. It's not just about the products we love, it is about helping our customers to meet their needs. Whatever your requirements, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We promise you'll receive our best service. It comes as standard.
