Highbridge glass firm is short-listed for top industry award

A Highbridge glass company has been short-listed for a top industry award this week.

M5 Glass Centre, which opened recently in Highbridge, is part of Cornwall Glass & Glazing Ltd, and has been shortlisted as one of four finalists for this year's G12 National Glass Company of the Year Award.

The business has grown hugely from its humble beginnings when David & Heather Mitchell set up the business from home in the 1970’s, where in the early days the weighing out glazing putty was a regular occurrence in their kitchen.

Over the subsequent thirty plus years Cornwall Glass & Glazing, which the business is now known, has grown into a major manufacturer of double and triple glazed sealed units, toughened glass and other glass products.

The company currently operates 14 sites across the South West including branches in Bristol, Yeovil and Exeter. It has close to 200 staff and an annual turnover in excess of £10million.

Mark Mitchell, managing director of Cornwall Glass & Glazing, says: "We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted in the Glass Company of the Year category of the G12 Awards, this is the highest accolade within our industry and we are up against some global companies, it is fantastic to be competing with the biggest and best in the business."

Mark will lead a delegation of representatives from Cornwall Glass & Glazing when they attend the G12 Glass Industry Awards, hosted by comedian and television presenter Patrick Kielty, in London at the end of November.
