Dr Nick Kirk

Dr Nick Kirk PhD BEng CEng CEnv FIMMM

Technical Director

Nick has over 20 years’ experience in the glass sector - including six years in furnace design and construction. He has extensive experience and knowledge of glass production, products and applications including glass packaging, glazing, fibre insulation, continuous fibre and technical glasses.

In addition, Nick has comprehensive experience and knowledge of environmental issues including recycling, energy efficiency and environmental control.  Nick provides support to his internal team as well as independent glass expertise. He also acts as a legal expert witness for GTS customers.

He holds a PhD in materials engineering and a Bachelor of Engineering in materials design and materials engineering, is a chartered engineer (CEng), a chartered environmentalist (CEnv) and fellow of the Institute Materials, Minerals and Mining (FIMMM).

In his current role as Technical Director he has a team of 25 respected glass experts, technologists and technicians delivering high quality services to GTS’ international customers from the whole of the glass supply chain.

“GTS is not a typical analysis and testing laboratory, as we provide a solution to address an issue, rather just an analysis and test report.  If required, we are capable of undertaking our analysis and testing with interpretation of the results within a few hours depending on the service.  This is vital for the rapid manufacturing sector that we service, as any down time or reduction in production efficiency can be very costly to our customers.”
