Independent Glass Company Ltd

Established in 1987, IGC are one of the largest independent toughened glass manufacturers and glass merchants in the UK, and are a long standing customer of Glaston Bavelloni and now Glass Machinery Solutions.

As part of a continual improvement programme to ensure that their customers receive glass of the highest quality, IGC have invested in 3 new Bavelloni Alpa 315/323 N multi-functional CNC machines and a New Forza G water treatment unit. The new CNC machines encompass the latest technology from Glaston Bavelloni, and ensure that IGC stay ahead of the competition by offering services that the competition cannot.

Managing Director Mr John Devine says: - “I have always been happy with the Bavelloni machines and the excellent service that they provide. We have worked together for many years now and we at Independent Glass look forward to working with Glass Machinery Solutions and Bavelloni in the future”.

Independent Glass group now have 10 Bavelloni CNC machines, giving them huge processing capacity. A total of 13 Bavelloni machines including bevelling and straight line edging are installed across the Groups sites. All of these machines are covered by Glaston Bavelloni Service Care, meaning they are maintained to the highest standards, and that any down time is minimised due to the fast response Glass Machinery Solutions offers to Service Care customers.

Independent Glass have also invested in a FORZA G water treatment unit, to keep clean water that that is used for processing. This unit fits in nicely with IGC's ethics, as they strongly believe in caring for the environment and saving a precious commodity such as water.


Toughglaze (UK) Ltd 

Toughglaze (UK) Ltd was formed in 1993, with a clear vision: to become the only supplier of toughened and laminated glass products that their customers will want to do business with. They are a long-standing customer of Glaston Bavelloni and have several Bavelloni machines installed at their sites, including cutting, double-edging and CNC machines.

Toughglaze have invested in a second Glaston Bavelloni Syncro cutting line to give them even more cutting capacity to keep up with the demands of their very busy factory and order book. Toughglaze invested a large Jumbo cutting line back in 2009/2010, which they say more than doubled their production due to the speed of the machine.

Bhavik Varsani for Toughglaze comments: “Glaston Bavelloni has always been very good to us and we have received the very best of service from them. We have worked with Glass Machinery Solutions since they took over the Bavelloni operation in the UK in January 2010 and I am pleased to say they have carried on the excellent level of service. This is why we have had the confidence to invest in more machinery with Glass Machinery Solutions and Glaston Bavelloni”.
