About Saint-Gobain Glass UK

Established in 2000, the Saint-Gobain Glass Eggborough site has been pivotal in implementing circular economy principles for both glass production and recycling. Through our Glass Forever recycling programme, we’ve consistently set industry standards for sustainability, quality, and innovation in glass production.

In 2021, we undertook a significant upgrade with a cold-repair furnace, introducing a larger and more efficient one. This upgrade enhanced our production capabilities and reaffirmed our commitment to sustainable, high-quality glass manufacturing.
