The Clayton Difference

In Depth

Welcome to Clayton Glass, the UK’s favourite business-to-business IGU supplier. Clayton Glass was initially founded in 1956 making it one of the older glass manufacturers existing in the industry today. Then in 2004, the business became privately owned and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Fast-forward to 2020, and we are now a much larger business, operating across four separate sites, delivering nationwide, with over 400 employees! Subsequently, we are now one of the UK’s largest glass manufacturers.

However, we don’t operate like any other IGU manufacturer. Specifically, while we are one of the UK’s largest, we have always prioritised our relationships with customers above all else, offering the care and support that often falls by the wayside when a company reaches a certain size. Hence, we refer to this as ‘the Clayton Difference’.  Precisely, the Clayton difference is, and always will be, the company ethos, the mantra that we live by. This is because we believe that the correct way to do business is through building strong relationships, by creating trust through honesty, and having a two-way loyalty gives the customer complete piece of mind that we take their business seriously. Let us help you succeed.

At Clayton Glass, we are a proud founding member of the National Glass Group (NGG). The NGG is categorically the largest glass buyer in the UK, representing the premier Independent Glass Processors. Furthermore, our members meet a tight membership criterion; they share the same ethics and ethos, hold all of the appropriate accreditations, are financially strong and crucially they are independent, and owner managed.

Over the years, Clayton Glass have managed to accumulate an impressive trophy cabinet, through a number of business awards. First and foremost, we are the three-time winner, two-time runner up, and current holder of the IGU Manufacturer of the year award for 2019. Also most years, including the last three, we are named amongst 1000 companies to inspire Britain from the London Stock Exchange.

Above all, we are always focused on the future at Clayton Glass as we look to expand this trophy cabinet, through continuing to find ways to improve our products, services and processes. To this effect, we are the sole operator of the new glass order tracking software ‘glassTRACK’ – helping you schedule around your glass deliveries in real-time. Furthermore, we cannot talk about the future without mentioning our two flagship, class-leading conservatory roof glass products – SMARTGLASS & Celsius Glass.

Finally, a special mention to the year 2019. 2019 was the biggest year in Clayton Glass history. We have expanded our efforts, stuck to our principles and it all led to a highly successful year. We have continued our partnerships with local colleges and organisations, doing our bit to train the fenestration workers of the future. In July, we expanded our glass manufacturing facility – it is now the largest of its type anywhere in the UK, and in October we purchased two new glass factories in Huthwaite and Blackburn, significantly shortening lead times for our customers in the South.
