Who We Are & How We Began
The Glenlith Interiors brand is a small friendly family run business established in 2005 while residing in London. I get asked many times, where did the name come from, is your name Glen, is it a mountain range etc?
My business partner (and still a good friend to this day) in London at the time was Lithuanian. Ray Venckus and I worked together since 2001, getting stronger, picking up larger clients every year. At this point, legally, we had no option, but to form a company. We came up with many names, to which we put forward to friends in marketing and advertising. After taking on board all information from careful market research, all feedback directed to the Glenlith name, I could tell you why, but I can't give everything away!
So......Having had a successful career installing fitted furniture and running projects for some of the most prestigious companies in New York (2 years), Sydney (1 year) and London (10 years). my wife and I were ready to start a family. Unfortunately, places like London, amazing as it is, have a shelf life and inner city living was not our first choice to raise children. After viewing several properties in the home counties like Guildford etc, the commuting times and other logistics did not make it feasible. We decided it would be better to return to our roots to start a family.
I now put this invaluable experience to use, designing and installing fitted furniture inc kitchens, bedrooms and home office/studies covering Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Central Scotland. My time in construction projects, involved high-end fit outs in financial, hotel and residential sectors . This has given me design and build ideas that I pass on to my own customers. Experience gained in my international locations, not only increased my wealth of knowledge, it gave me the most valuable tool in business…… Knowing the expectations and dealing with clients from all walks of life.
We are a professional and courteous team who take the time to install to perfection…… Showroom perfection!. When on site we see a project through to completion. We do not ‘flit’ between projects to cover large overheads or give our tradesmen time limits, we are dedicated to our current contract and dedicated we remain until you are 100% satisfied. Being a small quality company is advantageous as we thrive on gaining the trust and respect of our clients as positive word of mouth is hugely important to us.
We aim to provide you with a product and service that you will be delighted with. At Glenlith Interiors, we work from an office and workshop on the south side of Glasgow. Glenlith Interiors provide an in-house service, bringing the showroom to you. We can also design the whole room on our state of the art, CAD software, adding floor coverings and wall colour textures. The added benefit of not having a showroom means that we can save you a significant sum of money, allowing you to add more accessories, upgrading appliances or getting the granite or quartz work surface you thought was not possible. If you think about it, Showrooms cost money!!!! Designers, sales staff, rent, rates and updating trends in the window, it's got to be covered somehow. This is where we pass the saving onto you, the customer. However, if you want to spend another couple of thousand just to open & close a cabinet door in a showroom, we totally understand.
