Welcome to Clayton Glass! We are one of the UK’s largest and most trusted business-to-business manufacturers and suppliers of insulating glass units (IGUs).

Since forming back in 1956, Clayton have become the go-to source of knowledge on all things glass. Through many years of learning and developing, we now operate at the forefront of the latest that glazing technology has to offer, whether it be windows, bifold doors, skylights or conservatories.

Each year, we process around 25,000 tonnes of glass, equivalent to 2.5 million individual IGUs. This is enough to glaze well over 100,000 standard UK houses! With all these homes feeling the many benefits of having high quality units in their windows, doors and conservatories.


Across our four high-tech manufacturing facilities, featuring some of the most advanced IGU-assembling machinery anywhere, we all have a common goal. This is that we produce IGUs of the highest possible quality, and deliver them to our customers on time, in full. It’s about building strong business-to-business relationships; something that hinges on the quality of IGUs we produce, and on the dedication of our manufacturing teams.

By joining the Clayton team, you will become part of the Clayton family, and share in our common goal. We will provide you with full training and, as best we can, an environment where you can thrive, grow and ultimately succeed. Progression is always possible at Clayton Glass, and we would tend to look for internal solutions before we consider an outside hire.
