Padiham Glass, part of the Emplas Group, has renewed its commitment both to its state-of-the-art glass manufacturing facilities and to valued spacer supplier Edgetech, by investing in another automated Super Spacer® application line.

Founded in 1980, Padiham has consistently invested in the business to ensure its customers receive exceptional quality products.

In 2004, the company became one of the early adopters of warm edge technology when it purchased its first Super Spacer automated line, as part of a wider investment program that saw it greatly expand its manufacturing and warehousing space and introduce its second toughening plant.

Additional investments were made when the Emplas Group acquired Padiham Glass in 2018, and today the company operates a cutting-edge, increasingly automated glass manufacturing facility, which has been further modernised by the installation of a brand new Forel vertical IGU Super Spacer application line.

“By constantly investing, Padiham is able to offer customers the highest quality IGUs, consistent lead times, and competitive prices,” comments Managing Director John Spiby.

“The new line will allow us to further expand our operations, and bring outstanding IGU products to even more customers around the country.

“We’d like to thank Edgetech for their support – Super Spacer plays an integral role in ensuring our units offer consistency, longevity and superb overall performance.”

Tony Palmer, Edgetech’s Head of Sales, comments: “It’s hugely gratifying for us to see Padiham Glass continue to thrive and grow.

“Their commitment to investment and innovation has meant they’ve been consistently ahead of the curve, and we’re proud to supply them.

“We look forward to working with them for many years to come.”

Padiham manufactures double and triple-glazed sealed units, using the highest quality components – including glass from Saint-Gobain and Pilkington – and finished in low-e coating. For more information, please call 02476 639931 or visit
