Open: UK’s largest stock glass centre

Glassolutions in Elland, West Yorkshire, has opened the UK’s largest stock glass distribution centre. The Glassolutions Northern Hub comprises a 30,000ft2 warehouse and a 10,000 ft2 office space. It will employ 35 people from its former premises in Bradford and Huddersfield, including the creation of 11 new jobs.

Lisa Dunn, Glassolutions’ distribution director, said: “The Northern Hub is an impressive facility that will lead to an even better service for our customers and is an exciting development for Glassolutions in the UK.” She described the hub as “a complete one-stop shop for all glass and glazing products, including clear float, tinted float, low iron, soft and hard coat, laminated, patterned, wired, silvered, fire-glass and self-cleaning glass in stock, cut sized and processed”.

She continued: “All our customers from small traditional glaziers and joiners to large sealed unit manufacturers, window fabricators and installers, fit out companies and glass merchants will benefit from daily deliveries across the north of England, as well as online ordering and a collection service. Situated close to the M62 between Leeds and Manchester, we are perfectly located to serve the north of England with fast, efficient deliveries of the widest range of glass and glazing products, plus, our enhanced online ordering system means that our customers can even get their glass on the go. The Northern Hub puts us in a fantastic position for the future growth of the business.”
