Thermoseal Group has purchased a new 2-acre production site in Wigan – the location previously owned by Global Glass.

As part of Thermoseal Group’s strategy to become a world leader in warm edge spacer market, the Group has purchased a new 2-acre production site in Wigan – the location previously owned by Global Glass.

The new site is on Challenge Way, Martland Park in Wigan, which is a stones-throw from the Group’s other Thermobar and Thermoflex Warm Edge Spacer manufacturing and warehouse sites.

Thermoseal Thermoseal Group Challenge Way site will now see extensive reconstruction to provide further expansion for: warm edge spacer production; development of the Group’s Technical Centre and EN1279 test facilities, as well as enhanced facilities for the growing production team.

We have been looking for the ideal site for expansion of our production facilities for a while now, so when this site became available so close to our current facilities, it provided the ideal solution.” says Gwain Paterson, Managing Director at Thermoseal Group.

“This Challenge Way development has come just at the right time to ensure that we can continue to meet the increasing demand for our energy efficient product portfolio and meet the likely increase in demand from the UK market brought about by revisions to Document L – the current consultation document suggests solutions which may require the specification of triple glazing in new properties. Should this go ahead, the requirement for triple glazing will mean double the volume of spacer bar and fittings within each IG unit and so greater demand from manufacturers of premium high performance warm edge products such as ourselves.

“The plan now is to sit down with the Wigan team and ensure that the Challenge Way site is designed and developed to maximise production and development of our products whilst providing the best environment for our staff.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued business and assure them that we are working to develop ourenergy efficient products and services to suit the changing market for IG."
