Production capacity expanded

AB Glass has increased its production capacity by 35% as it gears up for a boom in new work and projects.

The Swansea-based company has made a six-figure investment in building a new 3,000ft2 storage unit that will release 35% more floor space in its production unit, enabling it to increase and to further grow its order book, the company said.

The construction of a five-bay storage unit has now been completed. It will allow the business to cope with an increase in demand it has experienced as lockdown measures have eased and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit has lessened.

Alan Brayley, managing director of AB Glass, said: “Clearly, 2020 threw some severe challenges at us but I am very proud of the resilience we showed in how we quickly adjusted our working practices and worked very hard all year to ensure we weathered the storms. In addition to expanding our premises, we also welcomed a new generation of talent to the business. We now through into 2021 in a bullish frame of mind, and with much-need extra capacity at our disposal.”
