Glass mineral wool manufacturer Knauf Insulation has become a member of British Glass.

Based in St Helens, Knauf Insulation shares many processes and policies in common with existing glass manufacturing members of British Glass.

The group therefore believes it is “perfectly placed” to represent Knauf Insulation as it tackles the challenges currently affecting the glass industry and its supply chain.

Neil Hargreaves, Managing Director of Knauf Insulation Northern Europe, said: “Government action in the near term will determine how well the UK navigates multiple challenges such as energy cost inflation, climate change, energy security and low economic productivity.

“We look forward to working with British Glass to help shape a policy environment that allows the glass industry generally, and insulation specifically, to play its part to the full.”

Federation Manager at British Glass Jenni Richards said: “It’s a pleasure to have Knauf Insulation join us as members and provide us with their wealth of knowledge on the glass mineral wool section of our diverse industry.

“The whole team at British Glass is looking forward to working with Knauf Insulation and representing ever more of the glass manufacturing sector.”
