What our clients say

We always wanted to have our own glass toughening plant, but it was always more of a longer-term vision. As suppliers struggled to keep up with demand we were in danger of falling behind on production, so we made the decision to take hold of our own destiny and create our own facility here in Norfolk. GROW: OffshoreWind support has helped speed up the process considerably, in fact I think it’s one of the fastest glass plants ever built.
