the glass systems Group, supplier of sealed units to the uk trade

Glass Systems Ltd was established in 1988 and has grown into the largest independent sealed unit manufacturer and glazing supplier in the UK. Since our inception we have been at the forefront in terms of expertise, service and quality within the sealed unit industry.

In 1988 John and Claire Wood started the business supplying sealed units to trade customers in South Wales. In the early 1990s Alan Atkinson joined the business and a customer base out of Wales, along the M4 corridor was soon established.

The subsequent years saw an increase in business, and the need to toughen our own glass rather than rely on others resulted in the setting up of our own glass toughening business Vizor Tempered Glass Ltd, based in Port Talbot, in 1996.

Expansion continued and in 2003 with Glass Systems Ltd, producing over 10,000 units per week, the move to a purpose built factory and the investment to automate many of the processes became a necessity. In 2007 we acquired what is now Glass Systems Direct, based just north of Cardiff, to give us further capacity and the ability to service an increased geographical area. This was then followed in 2009, with the set up of Climate our specialist conservatory roof glass division based at the Vizor site in Port Talbot.

Today the Glass Systems Group encompasses three separate companies offering the full spectrum of products and services to the window, conservatory, and door industries. The contact details and link to each company are on the right hand side of this page.

Our philosophy when we founded the business all those years ago was simple "give them what they want, when they want, at a price that is fair" and it is with these same principles we continue to operate 25 years later. A combination of hard work by an experienced and committed workforce, an attention to detail unrivalled by our competition, on-going investment in the latest technology and a continual dialogue with our customers, all contribute to our on-going success.
