Since opening our doors in 2009 we have achieved many of our aims, scroll down for a brief run down of our accomplishments thus far.

AUGUST 2009 – GRAND OPENING

With only four employees, glassHUS was formed, initially managing projects from an office in Sunderland, where our process involved; estimating, design, raw material purchasing and installation on sight. The fabrication was then being outsourced.

SUMMER 2011 – MILESTONE

Sainsbury’s extension, Silksworth, Sunderland was successfully tendered under Vinci Construction, totalling £120,000 – a huge order at the time.

JULY 2013 – MANUFACTURE

By this time, we opened our own 3,500ft² premises for manufacture at Rivergreen, Pallion. There were still only 8 employees at glassHUS. This was the establishment of the organisation that glassHUS has grown to become. The first manufacturing job at these premises was for South Tyneside College phase 3 under Robertson Construction, a tender in excess of £300,000.
