“It’s perfect timing,” says John Tierney, Operating Directorof TuffX Glass, as his third and newest Glaston furnace, the FC500™ is starting to roll out glass.

The market is back with a vengeance.  Demand for high-performance glass used in the UK conservatories is starting to outpace supply. And we don’t want to turn away any more business.”

John has been involved at TuffX Glass since 1998 and has helped steer its growth into becoming a specialist and the UK's largest manufacturer of glass conservatory roofs and processed glass. Located close to Liverpool, the facility that is now housed in 55,000 ft2 is currently expanding with a new extension to encompass 80,000 ft2. Joining two previous Glaston tempering lines, purchased in 2007 and 2010, Glaston's FC500™ has been installed in February 2016, giving TuffX Glass the capacity needed to serve the growing market demand.
