The UKs leading glass manufacturer has announced the opening of a purpose-built manufacturing facility at Wardpark Industrial Estate, Cumbernauld.
Covering 76,600 sq ft in total, the new plant is more than twice the size of the old facility and will process and supply the entire range of Pilkington products, including Pilkington Activ, Pilkington T glass and Pilkington Insulight units.
Production efficiencies and quality levels will be improved thanks to the investment in up-to-date machinery including a toughening furnace, a second cutting table and a second IGU processing line.
The relocation of the facility at Wardpark will result in workforce numbers rising significantly and all employees have been fully trained in the processing operations and safe handling of glass. The new factory also represents a significant economic investment to the wider Cumbernauld area and reinforces Pilkington Building Products UKs commitment to the future success of glass manufacturing in Scotland.
