GlassParts was founded in 1988. Kieran Costello, Sr. initially started his career with one of Irelands largest glass wholesaler's and double glazing manufacturers before seeing a niche in the market for a great supplier of tools and accessories to the glass trade that he was part of. Kieran's wealth of experience and product knowledge helped the company grow from strength to strength through innovation, diversification and understanding customer’s needs. After the untimely passing of Kieran Costello, Sr. in July 2014 the running of the company has passed to the next generation in the form of brothers Kieran, Noel & Mark who have been involved in the company in some fashion for the past 30 years.
GlassParts, through its partnerships with some of the world’s largest and exclusive manufacturers has grown hugely over the past 30 years. Not only has their range of products changed vastly over this period but it has also grown extensively to nearly 6000 stock lines. This trend is set to continue with their continued expansion of their customer list in Ireland & the UK.
