Kuraray

One of our key partner supplier relationships is with Kuraray: a world-class science and engineering business supplying a global marketplace. Kite Glass has a long-standing relationship with Kuraray; today we manufacture more laminated glass using Kuraray’s SentryGlas® interlayers than any other company in the UK. SentryGlas® interlayers allow us to create glass that is thinner, lighter and more durable than conventional laminated glass.

BSI

Virtually from our formation Kite Glass has had close links with the British Standards Institute, hence the choice of our name. Over the years we have assisted with standards research and offered views on standard setting – a strong statement to our relationship with the British Standards Institute, and one that we hope continues for many years to come.
