Huddersfield based business, Specialist Glass Products (SGP), has received the Eaton Smith Business of the Month Award.
SGP was established in 2003 by brothers Andrew and Jonathan Taylor who saw a gap in the market for particular types of glass products that other suppliers in the UK could not provide. Their clients include others in the glass industry, architects, construction and steel companies. Its innovative range of products includes LED smart glass, bespoke laminates for use in signage such as Crossrail, and high-performance coated glass used to reduce energy consumption in buildings. These are used to keep buildings warm in winter, and cool in summer by reducing solar gain and heat loss.
Phil Clarke, Partner at Eaton Smith and member of the judging panel said; “SGP makes a significant contribution to the region, employing 80 people from the local area including apprentices and by leading innovation in the glass manufacturing sector, the company boosts the profile of Huddersfield as a place to do business. This business is an asset to our region.”
Andrew Taylor, joint Managing Director commented on the award; “We’re really pleased that our hard work and commitment to innovation has been recognised by the judges. We have gone through an investment programme over the last few years which has resulted in state-of-the-art machinery and highly skilled staff. We are very excited about driving the future growth of SGP.”
SGP will now go forward to the Business of the Year Award on 3rd July 2020.
