Leading sealant supplier, Kommerling UK, has strengthened its ties with Cornwall Glass by signing an agreement to supply Polysulphide Insulating Glass Sealant GD116NA and primary seal Naftotherm BU-S for use on the company’s new production line.
The new production facilities, which are based around a Reinhart machine, have been installed at Cornwall Glass’ newest branch, M5 Glass Centre, which is located in Highbridge, Somerset.
Phil Turley, Business Manager, Glass Products at Kommerling, said; “We have been supplying Cornwall Glass for over 10 years and are delighted to be working with them to help ensure the success of this latest investment. Despite what we hear in the media about the general economic climate, Cornwall Glass’ dynamic approach to business is helping the company to go from strength to strength in the south west.”
“With current legislation, the Green Deal and an increasing consumer awareness of the issues surrounding building and energy efficiency we believe that there is a real opportunity for a company able to produce double and triple glazed units for both the commercial and domestic market,” commented Paul Garrard, director at M5 Glass Centre. “The installation of the new production line has gone very well and we have already seen our first units roll out the door.”
Cornwall Glass took over the site last year following the administration of the previous owners’ business. After refurbishing the premises they have been able to re-employ a number of former employees and hope to grow the work force to 14 in the next 18 months.
