Family-owned Regency Glass has become one of the UK’s biggest and most advanced sealed unit manufacturers with a move to 100,000 sq ft premises in Lancashire potentially more than doubling its production capacity.
Steve Massey, sales and marketing director at Regency Glass said: “We’ve seen fantastic growth over the past few years and in order to sustain this growth then now is the time to invest. Our new factory and showroom at Bridgewater Business Park in Leigh is three times the size of our previous premises and will allow us over time to manage a planned increase in production of high-quality sealed units.”
Regency Glass, which employs 110 people, expects to employ 10 more people to accommodate its growth plans. The company provides a comprehensive range of sealed units and toughened glass to the domestic and commercial markets, working in conjunction with Saint-Gobain Glass since 1983.
Steve Massey said: “We are proud of our reputation for excellence in quality and service and we can only achieve this by working with exceptional supply chain partners such as Saint-Gobain Glass, which provides us with a range of high-quality glass that meets the needs of our customers. We’ve also invested in new equipment and now have multiple production lines, two furnaces and double the capacity for glass cutting with new laminate and annealed cutting lines to sit alongside our existing machinery. We also have new delivery vehicles to maintain our excellent supply service to our customers. This is a very exciting landmark in the company’s history and will future proof the business for many years to come.”
Regency Glass is firmly committed to its local community and has teamed up with local charity Compassion in Action, to provide a subsidised canteen in its new premises for staff.
