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 saw the move into laminating glass as an exciting opportunity to explore. It gives us an open door to many new areas, such as security, acoustic and decorative glass. After thoroughly reviewing six lines, we chose Glaston’s ProL lamination thanks to its convection heating and simplicity,” say Consolidated Glass Corporation’s Brad Bartley, General Manager, and Lindsey Merryman, Lamination Line Program Manager.Read more

“For nearly 25 years, our second-hand Glaston tempering line served customers with quality glass tempering. But after numerous upgrades and rebuilds, it was simply time to invest in a new tempering line. Glaston’s RC Series fit our needs. Now, we’re looking forward to operating it for the next 20+ years,” says Mats Pihlqvist, Site Manager at Industriglas AB in Jönköping, Sweden.Read more
