Entrepreneur builds new company

Paul Howe launches Vista Glaze

An Andover entrepreneur has launched a new business to make it easier for builders and homeowners to choose glazed roofs and bi-fold doors as part of their building extension projects. Paul Howe set up Vista Glaze and has teamed up with several builders merchants across the country to sell his products.

Paul is pictured with St Mary’s ward member, Councillor Iris Andersen, who presented the Council’s £750 Business Incentive Grant at local stockist South Coast Building Supplies on Walworth Business Park in Andover, Councillor Andersen said: “Paul has worked very hard to network with suppliers and stockists to build a new brand. I would like to wish him the best of luck in his new venture.”

Paul added: “My thanks go to Test Valley Borough Council for the Business Incentive Grant. There is a lot of work involved in setting up your own business but it’s all worth it and I’m very excited about the future.”

The Council’s £750 Business Incentive Grants are available to anyone looking to set up their own business in Test Valley. Budding entrepreneurs should apply for the grant before they start their company and if it is still going strong six months later, they will receive the cheque.
