Cornwall Group has been named Best Glass Company at this year’s G-Awards.

Held at London’s Park Lane Hilton, the G-Awards celebrate product and service innovation glass and the window and door industry, Cornwall Group fighting off stiff competition to pick up the top accolade.

Mark Mitchell, chairman, Cornwall Group, said: “The Group was formed in July 2019, only a few months before COVID-19 hit, with the aim of driving improved service and agility across our businesses.

“While we couldn’t have foreseen the challenges that we have faced, the new and more flexible structure that we put in place has been instrumental in supporting us in adapting to challenge, by empowering colleagues to make the right decisions.

“To have that recognised, and all the hard work that each and every member of our team has put in to making our reorganisation a success, in some fairly trying circumstances, is fantastic.”

Cornwall Glass was founded in 1978. Restructuring as the Cornwall Group it operates across three divisions, including two focussing on trade, Cornwall Glass Manufacturing and glass merchanting business, Mackenzie Glass, which was acquired by Cornwall Glass in 2017 from Pilkington/NSG.  A third division, Cornwall Glass & Glazing, is focussed on installations, trade and retail supply.

Collectively it operates across 12 sites, employing more than 270 people but with plans to expand its operational capability further.

This includes a pledge to commit £6m to its Highbridge operation, one of three sites in its manufacturing division. This will include the ability to manufacture over-sized units at a second facility, heat soak capability and specialist glass processing operations.

“We invest in our colleagues, in their training, their support and they have been incredibly hardworking and invested in the last two years in driving service to our customers against the backdrop of exceptional disruption and challenge in the supply chain”, continued Mark.

“We’re also looking ahead to future investment and growth, and although I believe that the industry will see continuing challenge in the months ahead, we go into 2022 confident about our future and our place within the industry.”
