Global Glass sold to Clayton

The Aperture Group has sold Global Glass to IGU manufacturer Clayton Glass.

Matthew Mycock, CEO of the Aperture Group, said Aperture’s strengths lie in the PVCU side of the business, alongside WarmCore, Calibre Doors, PVCU fabrication of windows and patio doors through Norvik New Build, and Roofs including Global, K2 systems, Celsius Solid Roofs, Stratus Lantern roof and SkySpace.

“I believe there is untapped potential in the Global business that can be realised under the new trusted ownership of Clayton Glass,”” Matthew said.

“The acquisition will not affect the day-to-day management of Global Glass, which has to date been run as a separate business within the group by Derren Gittins.”

Derrenwill continue asmanaging director, and there will be no changes to the rest of the Global Glass team.

“Similarly, for Aperture customers, there will be little change to their supply as we have secured a long-term partnership supply agreement with Clayton Glass up front,” Matthew said.“This will allow our customers to benefit from an even wider product range.

“With Clayton Glass’ expertise in the glass sector, Global Glass will be able to achieve better UK coverage and supply stability. It adds almost 50% to Clayton’s existing capacity.”

He continued: “We are determined to create a more customer focused, and sustainable business for our customers, colleagues and critical supply chain partners and believe that the sale of Global Glass is another step towards this goal. For Global Glass too, joining a dedicated, well-established glass company will benefit the business and its customers now and for the long-term.”
