Clayton Glass and Northern Express Glass announce strategic partnership


Clayton Glass and Northern Express Glass are delighted to announce they are collaborating in a strategic venture, creating a unique and independent alliance within the IGU industry across the North of the UK.

‘Initially Clayton Glass will be taking a minority shareholding in NEG’, said Ryan Green, MD of Clayton Glass. ‘However in thinking through the process, it has quickly become apparent that there is far greater benefit to be had from working together than the financial aspect alone’.

‘Each business has its own particular strengths, be that machinery, capacity or specific skill base, so by joining forces we can make the most efficient use of a pooled resource base, to the benefit of all of our customers and employees’.

Paul Williams NEG partner added, ‘Both businesses are already successful in their own rights, offering a high quality sealed unit, delivered with a great level of personal service that our customers love.  Nothing in that respect will change whatsoever, but by collaborating in this way we become more resilient as a team, have a greater geographical reach and more manufacturing capability to call on if needed’

The two companies will continue to operate independently from each other, albeit with some cross supply of specialist products and joint venture project work. Combined IGU capacity is in excess of 25,000 standard and 4,000 roof units per week, with the new set up including 5 tempering furnaces and 5 automated IG lines, across 4 separate sites.
