About Global Glass:

This has been an impressive year for Global Glass, the specialist glass division of the Synseal Group. Following the acquisition of the domestic manufacturing assets of Village Glass in December 2016, the Essex based factory has near tripled its IGU capacity from 6,500 to 18,000, bringing the wider Global Glass weekly sealed unit capacity to 50,000. This makes Global Glass the largest UK owned glass manufacturer, operating nationwide from factories in Essex, Nottinghamshire, Wigan and Blackburn. With six fully automated sealed unit lines and the largest toughened glass output in the UK of 40,000m2 per week, Global Glass is set up to respond to large scale customers and their growing demand 24/7 with the flexibility and capability to respond to things like regional demands and machinery maintenance without affecting output. Global Glass’ expansion has enabled the wider Synseal Group to employ 45+ new staff members in the new Essex plant with a recruitment strategy aimed at attracting and retaining local talent. Overall, Global Glass has gone from a standing to start to a turnover of £40 million in glass sales in less than six years, establishing itself as a core part of the wider Synseal Group business supplying to both in-house window, door and conservatory orders as well as a number of Synseal’s industry competitors.
