Business invests to open UK’s biggest glass distribution facility

The UK’s largest stock glass distribution centre has been opened by Glassolutions in Elland, West Yorkshire.

The Glassolutions Northern Hub comprises a 30,000 sq ft warehouse and 10,000 sq ft office space and will employ 35 people from its former premises in Bradford and Huddersfield, including the creation of 11 new jobs.

Lisa Dunn, distribution director at Glassolutions, which has invested over £1m in the premises 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.

“This will be 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.

“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.

“We are perfectly located to serve the North with fast, efficient deliveries of the widest range of glass and glazing products, plus our enhanced online ordering system means 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.”
