An igu manufacturer with a difference
At Clayton Glass, we believe we are not like any of the other glazing manufacturers or glass suppliers out there, and we’d like to tell you why.
We are, first and foremost, an IGU Manufacturer/Sealed-Unit Manufacturer with an extremely long history in the sector.
As a glass company, we have been manufacturing and supplying IGUs for 56 years.This means we’ve had longer than most Glazing Manufacturers and Glass Suppliers to perfect the technique of making IGUs of the highest quality.
Thanks to this, over the years we have consistently supplied some of the biggest names in glazing. Working for Clayton Glass is all about having a sense of pride in producing pristine glass units, over and over again.
In 2005, this glass company, with all of its pride and industry intellect became owner managed. Since then, we have elevated ourselves to our current position among the elite glazing manufacturers and glass suppliers.
This is confirmed by our status of being the current holders of the “IGU Manufacturer of the Year”, as voted for by industry professionals in the National Fenestration Awards.
We are now an IGU Manufacturer/Glass Company that has Owner and Director involvement in all the day-to-day, nitty gritty work that comes with being one of the UK’s largest Glazing Manufacturers and Glass Suppliers.
We believe this allows us to have the sharpest and most direct service of any of the Glazing Manufacturers or Glass Suppliers out there. Among Glass Manufacturers we are unparallelled in this area.
Our status as one of the premier Glazing Manufacturers and Glass Suppliers in the UK, is confirmed by our industry-high OTIF% (On Time, In Full) of over 99.5% over the last 2 years.
This makes us a glass company with a difference in terms of the personalised services we can offer, including bespoke glazing options as well as lead times.
In late 2019, our status as a premier Glass Company was further elevated by the purchase of another Glass Manufacturer. With the purchase, Clayton Glass grew in almost all areas with the acquirement of two new state-of-the-art glass manufacturing facilities in Huthwaite and Blackburn, to add to our sites in Stanley (the largest of its type in the UK) and North Shields.
This has upped our capacity as an Glass Manufacturer, and in some areas significantly shortened our lead times.
Another way we separate ourselves from other glazing manufacturers and glass suppliers is through our innovation.
As a glass company we offer digital services that no other Glass Manufacturer does. In Summer 2019, we launched “glassTRACK”, an app that comes with free tablet for our customers to track their glass orders, meaning you can plan accordingly.
In June 2020, we launched Clayton Clinics, a service where you get advice, support, information and feedback from our glass industry professionals over webcam.
We believe we are the only IGU Manufacturer or Glass Company to offer such direct lines of communication. In terms of unique services Clayton Glass is a pioneering Glass Manufacturer.
