The Glass Machinery Company Supplies Tailored Solutions for Niche Market

A leading specialist glass manufacturer based in Kidderminster near Birmingham, has made substantial investments in equipment from The Glass Machinery Company.

In a recent investment GGP Glass Ltd has installed a lamination oven which is the first of its kind to be installed by The Glass Machinery Company in the UK.

The Microglas Lamir H600, which is available in many working dimensions has been tailored to 2000 x 3200m for this particular project to suit the needs of the production facilities at GGP Glass Ltd. The capacity of the machine which includes forced air cooling and a second drawer matched the company’s output requirements perfectly.

As a family run business that was established over 10 years ago, GGP Glass has since carved a niche in the market as a reputable firm that will provide unique glass solutions. With the company making a decisive move to progress into toughened glass processing it was essential that the high standards for which it is recognized would not be diminished.

Tony England, Owner at GGP Glass Ltd stated that it was vital when accommodating the toughening process into manufacturing methods that the machinery installed could meet the exacting demands of a specialist manufacturer. With clients including Boots Chemists, The Olympic Village and House of Fraser as well as numerous contracts to supply the private sector with niche products including shower cubicles for holiday homes in Barbados to decorative panels in manor houses, GGP is recognized for product quality, consistency and excellence. Contd…/ The installation comes at a time of growth and development for GGP Glass who, with the corporate philosophy of working on projects others will not consider, believe that the laminating oven will add a new dimension to the business, allowing for diversification to include such toughened glass products as balustrades and staircases.

Investment in the Lamir was based upon the knowledge and reliability of The Glass Machinery Company team. The patented Microred technology offers GGP Glass a simple and effective way to broaden the product range without overcomplicating production methods. Tony England comments, “As a family processing business we specialize in providing innovative products to the market. In order to bring quality solutions to the market we have to invest in machinery that will keep us ahead in this sector. He continues, “Our work speaks for itself as customers such as Goldman Sachs will attest. We needed a machine that could be tailored to our exact specifications based upon the products we manufacture. We therefore needed to increase the size of the oven without paying huge additional premiums. He concludes “We know the high standards of The Glass Machinery Company from previous experience and although we evaluated the market extensively, found that they were the only company who would accommodate our very specific requirements.”

Phil Birchall, Managing Director at The Glass Machinery Company comments, “During a difficult economy we feel it is more important than ever to go the extra mile when it comes to customer service. As GGP Glass expand their business arena we have installed a cost-effective system that will help to broaden their entire portfolio and help the company to maintain its leading market edge”.
