GLASS&SEALEDUNITS New initiative launched Clayton Glass has just launched #theclaytondifference initiative with a view to communicating the key attributes of why the business has become one of the most respected and customer centric IGU manufacturers in the UK. » » THIS NEW CAMPAIGN across PR, e-mail and social media is designed to highlight many of the facts about the company which now boasts a capacity of 15,000 IGU’s per week. There has also been more than £3m invested in the business in the last 18 months and there’s now an ability to laser etch customer logos and brand names on to IGU’s. As one of the largest independent glass processors in the UK, Clayton has an impressive position in the IGU market with an owner-managed structure that allows them to be far more adaptive and hands on than many other glass suppliers, with a distinct ‘can do’ attitude.
