Sapphire is a well-established family firm with strong beliefs about how we want to do business. We express them in three aims in our mission:
To establish lasting, team relationships with customers, specifiers and suppliers through providing balustrade solutions in a reliable, principled and honest manner.
To develop a recognised brand of quality products and systems which are attractive, fit for purpose and conform to legislation.
To harness the potential and talent of both staff and subcontractors through training and by maintaining a safe, satisfying and rewarding work environment and ethos.
Our vision is simple yet challenging. As we achieve it, we believe the market will be reluctant to use the old traditional methods. Especially once clients have seen first hand the speed, rigidity and simplicity in which Glide-On Cassette® balconies are installed.
To provide the balcony of choice globally.
- By 2020 our highly satisfied customers will confirm that Sapphire is the leading provider of modular balcony systems.
- To keep our market-leading momentum we realise the importance of being flexible, adaptive to change, to continually develop as well as having great people and culture.
- Our vibrant and performance driven team atmosphere will be made up of enthusiastic and self-motivated persons, self-accountable to achieve goals as well as supporting others.
- As we develop we will build a standardised transferrable business model that will be ready to take to new markets and into the future.

One of our core values at Sapphire is that we support each other. We regularly get involved in charitable causes and lend a hand wherever we can to extend this ethos of support to the wider community. We encourage staff to donate their time to charitable events as well as donating and fund raising as a company.
Our Head Office is located in Reading which is where most of our staff are based. Our recently refurbed premises can be toured via the below video
