Glass makes our lives more comfortable. It keeps the water off the floor when we shower, the wind out of your eyes while driving, and the cold out when the snow is thick on the mountains. Even though glass touches nearly every aspect of our day-to-day lives, we rarely give it any thought. Until something goes wrong, that is.
John Holden recognised the importance of glass when he started his career as an auto glazer. “There is no room for compromise when it comes to fitting glass,” he says. “Everything has to be precise for it to work as it should.”
This passion for precision led him to start OnPoint in 2019, and continues to be the driving force. In addition to auto glass, John and his team offer home and commercial glass solutions and tinting. They also specialise in retrofit double-glazing for homes. According to their website, double glazing can reduce your heat loss by over 70% while reducing condensation that helps to prevent mould, mildew and rotting of timber framing.
OnPoint now has a team of 11 across their Cromwell and Alexandra branches, comprised of mostly locals. Although John was born and bred in Invercargill, he has been calling Cromwell “home” for the past 17 years. “It’s a great place for our three young boys to grow up,” he says. “We all enjoy the outdoor lifestyle that the region has to offer.”
John believes in supporting local and loves to be involved in community initiatives. As the main sponsor of the 2022 Cromwell Fireworks & Street Party held in the Heritage Precinct, OnPoint enabled the Cromwell & Districts Promotion Group to bring this well-loved event to our town again.
“I think it’s a great family event and has always been a good evening in the past,” says John. “We would like to thank the local Cromwell community for supporting our local business which gives us the opportunity to get behind events like this.”
