What makes us different
Quality service coupled with a personal approach
Unlike other glass test houses that deliver cold reports, we pride ourselves on our personal approach and tailor guidance to your situation.
We work quickly and are adaptable to your specific needs. This means we can deviate from standard methods where required.
Our testing is always fit for the customer, not just for the sake of completing a test. If your job is high priority, we can also offer rapid turnaround. This ensures your issue can be resolved as quickly as possible.
Certified to industry standards
We are ISO9001 and ISO17025 accredited and are proud to have held the UKAS laboratory accreditation since its first publication in 1999.

We can also work to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and are open to being audited.
If you have specific standards that need to be met, we can work to them to suit your bespoke requirements.
We work regularly work with companies from across the globe and are here to ensure your glass samples are shipped to us safely and quickly.
If you are unsure about how to send your products to our laboratory for testing, we can advise on the best shipping options.
Our expert technologists have a wealth of knowledge around glass as a material. We can provide you with advice on the appropriate testing for your product and the necessary requirements associated with meeting standards.
Whether you are looking to meet existing standards, or develop more bespoke tests, we provide peace of mind and offer help to find the right answer.
We appreciate that the nature of our services can involve sensitive information. This means we often work under non-disclosure agreements to ensure that your information is treated with the upmost confidentiality.

I have worked closely with Glass Technology Services as coordinator in a collaborative Innovate UK development programme (Ultraweld) between 2018-2021 dealing with advanced laser glass welding. They proved to be a valuable, experienced partner offering innovative insight and deep knowledge on all things relating to glass with several theoretical and practical contributions including using their extensive range of testing facilities. They were highly professional from the proposal stage to project close, timely in all their reporting with a proactive, responsive attitude and always eager to help as needed. Glass Technology Services were crucially invaluable on project exploitation during and after the project, utilising their extensive international networks in the glass community. I can highly recommend them as a trusted, valued partner for glass processing development activities.
