This year’s winners of the Glass Focus Awards were revealed at a glitzy black-tie event at Hotel Brooklyn in Manchester.

For the second year in a row Encirc were crowned Company of the Year and also took home the Innovative Solution and Strengthening business through people awards while Saint-Gobain Glass won three awards including Rising Star, Health and Safety action and Sustainable Practice alongside Morley Glass & Glazing.

Other winners on the night included Allied Glass, The Armstrong Partnership and The Glass Company.

British Glass CEO Dave Dalton said:

“It’s no secret that our industry has faced, and is still going through, some difficult times over the last year which makes it all the more special to be able to welcome everybody back to the Glass Focus Awards to celebrate what we have all achieved together in person.

“We have seen some truly remarkable entries this year, from the incredible innovations that allow our industry to continually evolve and the sustainable actions that drive us forward to our goal of reaching net zero carbon emissions, to the beautiful designs that adorn our buildings and bottles, the unrivalled talent of our workforce and everything in between.

“It’s been a pleasure to welcome everybody back to the awards; we are all extremely proud of the achievements of our industry over the last year and we look forward to building on these in the coming year and beyond.”
