Northern Express Glass stays unrivalled with Glaston FC500
For over 20 years, Northern Express Glass (NEG) has enjoyed controlled growth in its home region of Lancashire, England. The family owned and run company is most appreciated by its customers for offering quality at a competitive price. Until now, Glaston furnaces have been an aspiration for the company. As part of its latest investment, though, NEG has purchased the Glaston FC500 tempering furnace to enable it to meet its ambitious expansion plans in the upcoming years.
NEG started out in a former ship chandler warehouse producing double-glazed glass units for the local area. Over the past two decades, the company has moved twice to meet the increased demand and output needs of the decorative glass market. Today, NEG and its sister company Clayton Glass are one of the North of England’s leading independent insulated glass unit and conservatory roof glass (Smart Glass) manufacturers with a full-time staff of over 300.
“We have always aspired to buy a Glaston furnace. Earlier, we purchased the cheaper imitations that served their purpose well for us at the time. Still, the quality and the process times with these machines have deteriorated over the years. That’s why we felt that now is the time to make the investment in a top-end furnace.”
“Glaston treated us superbly throughout the negotiations. Everything was clear and precise.They knew where we want to take our business.”
– Paul Williams, one of the three directors at NEG

“We purchased the Glaston iControL and scanner upgrade to solve any concern with software or spare parts availability before they became an issue. Once installed, the upgrade helped us win a large glass façade project in Indonesia that required extremely high quality. Both we and Glaston can be proud of the high level of quality achieved,” says Matea Franjić, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Kristal in Vitez, Bosnia and Herzegovina.Read more
