The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a personal and commercial impact across the globe.
At Glassflake, we wish to reassure our customers, suppliers and partners that our priorities remain in protecting the health and safety of all associated with Glassflake. We are also committed to ensuring continuity of business and supply. We are fortunate that with a largely automated manufacturing process, linked with a dedicated team of operators and support functions, that our production facility remains unaffected by the latest UK lockdown measures.
Our global sales and support network continues to operate with minimal interruption. We are also indebted to our local distributors and representatives, for their dedication in supporting customers through 2020.
THERE MUST BE SOME GOOD NEWS..!
As with any year or situation, we will always seek the positives – 2020 will be no different. This year has seen a physical expansion to our site, with dedicated areas for our engineering department and further investment in R&D and QA equipment. They are at the heart of both plant maintenance, quality control, and our R&D efforts so it has been vital to upgrade these facilities.
As customer applications become more advanced there has been a global shift towards micronised glassflake grades. These are suitable for very thin film coatings and finely crafted composite components. To stay ahead of this market shift, we have recently brought additional milling capacity on-line.
We thank our customers for the trust that they continue to place in us to support their businesses and to our employees for their hard work in helping Glassflake achieve this. We remain on hand to serve our customers, through the rough and smooth of the current situation.
