Specialist Glass Products operates from a 25,000 sq ft site at Milnsbridge Business Centre, in Milnsbridge, Huddersfield, and has an annual turnover of £3.5m.
The business, which was established in 2003, has bought machinery from China which will complement the firm's existing capacity to bend, curve and laminate glass, by enabling it to manufacture toughened glass.
The company manufactures products such as glass staircases, shop fronts and balconies for a range of clients including hotels, event venues and national retail chains.
Specialist Glass Products has invested in the glass toughening equipment to increase productionspeeds, with funding provided by Lloyds TSB's business banking, commercial finance and asset finance divisions.
Andrew Taylor, director of Specialist Glass Products, said: "Safety legislation is fuelling rising demand for glass which is both toughened and laminated and we're determined to seize the opportunities presented by this trend.
