An igu manufacturer with a difference
At Clayton Glass, we believe we are not like any of the other Double Glazing Manufacturers out there, and we’d like to tell you why.
We are, first and foremost, an IGU 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 others to perfect the technique of making IGUs to the highest possible quality.
Thanks to this, over the years we have consistently supplied some of the biggest names in glazing. In keeping with this, being part of the Clayton team is all about pride. Pride in your work, and pride in putting our name on every IGU that leaves each of our four sites.
In 2005, we became owner managed, meaning we were able to double down on our products, services and brand message. Since then, we have elevated ourselves to our current position among the elite Double Glazing Manufacturers.
This is confirmed by our status of being the 4-time winner and current holder of the “IGU Manufacturer of the Year”, as voted for by industry professionals in the National Fenestration Awards.
We are a 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 double glazing manufacturers.
We believe this allows us to have the sharpest and most direct service of any of the double glazing manufacturers out there.
Our status as one of the premier Double Glazing Manufacturers 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 (Nottinghamshire) and Blackburn (Lancashire), to add to our two north-east-based sites in Stanley (the largest of its type in the UK) and North Shields.
This has greatly upped our capacity, and in some areas significantly shortened our lead times.
Another way we separate ourselves from other Double Glazing Manufacturers 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 allows Clayton customers to track their glass orders and view all the information we have on a given order.
In June 2020, we launched Clayton Clinics, a service where you get advice, support, information and feedback from our glass industry professionals over Microsoft Teams.
We believe we are the only IGU Manufacturer to offer such direct lines of communication!
