A little bit about spectrum optical securities ltd

who we are

A Glasgow businessman who bought over the company he spent his entire working life with has moved to the East End.

Trevor Kelter, who has worked with Spectrum Optical Securities for 40 years since the age of 15, took over the firm at the end of 2006.

Now he has moved the company and its eight staff to the newly-opened Evans Business Centre in the East End of Glasgow.

Spectrum, an optical lens manufacturer, is one of the first businesses to take space at the new centre, part of Glasgow Business Park in Baillieston.

Mr Kelter said: "I left school at 15 and started working with Spectrum in Glasgow, which was then run by a father and son.

"Over the years we moved a number of times, always within the city centre, and when the father died I bought 50% of the business.

"At the end of 2006 we were faced with moving again, and my business partner decided to move on to other things. So 40 years after starting work I decided to buy him out and move the business nearer my home in Springhill.

"It was a very big step for me to buy the business outright, but it's a great feeling too."

He said the Evans Business Centre was "Ideal facility and location" for him.

"We're seconds away from the M8 so delivery vehicles have really excellent access.

"We work with independant opticians throughout the West central belt, producing prescription lenses, so the location is very important for us".
