26 years on Padiham Glass is still at the forefront of next generation glass processing

Padiham Glass celebrates its 26th anniversary this year. It’s certainly one of the industry’s success stories, already housing one of the largest Cool Temper toughening furnaces in the UK. Padiham relocated 12 months ago to new state of the art premises, to provide enough space to expand. Just a year on and the company is already investing again to add a further 10,000 square feet to its existing 25,000 square foot operation. Anthony Clarkson, Sales Manager of Padiham explains why: “This extra capacity is to accommodate the latest machinery enabling Padiham to supply sealed units with Edgetech’s advanced Super Spacer® technology. As well as supplying the best product and service, it’s our role to be on the look out for innovations that give our customers even more of a competitive edge. Edgetech Super Spacer does just this. With Part L and the whole focus of Building Regulations being on improving standards over the next ten years or so, we need products that are regulation-proof. Products that are so far ahead of the competition, they are clear winners.”

Padiham Glass is a quality conscious, forward thinking company that looks set to continue its growth, despite the downturn in the market. Jeremy Kemp, Operations Director of Padiham concludes: “Last year Padiham invested £2 million in the new premises and relocation. This year it has invested an additional £1 million in the machinery which will be fully on line in October. To further differentiate Padiham from the competition, we are branding our sealed units. We want people to know that if they buy from Padiham, they will buy a quality product. By keeping our foot on the pedal to drive the company forward, and constantly looking for ways to offer our customers an even better service and products to differentiate themselves, we believe we’re well placed to continue our growth.”
