They perform great work supporting individuals and families that are experiencing difficult times in their life and it is an honour to be associated with them.” “The awards that Crystal Galleries supplies are really appreciated by our corporate partners and make our presentations look so professional. It’s great that they’ve agreed to support us for yet another year,” commented Anne Cooling, Butterwick’s Head of Corporate Fundraising.

After a short period of trading it became obvious that there was an opportunity to supply trade customers including glass engravers and gift house distributors throughout the UK and Europe. Throughout the 80’s, 90’s and into the Millennium Crystal Galleries maintained a steady growth and as a result moved into larger premises on 3 occasions, this culminated in a move to their current 25,000 sq ft premises in February 2008. As the demand for glass and crystal products grew so did the need for complementary supplies and services which now include sandblasting equipment, compressors, mask making equipment, APM mask making film and a range of exclusive SelfAd self adhesive tissue stencils. Crystal Galleries endeavour to offer outstanding customer service and exceed quality expectations all of the time. They believe that this attitude has helped them to become the leader in their market place and shall endeavour to maintain this position for many years to come. Telephone: 01642 225799 Visit:
