History

History

Located 2 miles from junction 11 of the M25 in Surrey, Kite Glass has become one of the leading and most respected suppliers and installers of quality architectural and structural glass products across the UK.

Kite Glass was originally founded in 1985 as the commercial glass production division of EFCO International, a global furnace manufacturer. Today, we are an independent company with a dedicated approach to development and investment, which has positioned Kite Glass as market leader in our sector.

Our ethos and approach to business has resulted in a long-standing and stable workforce. We have always maintained a passion for high-end and technically challenging glass production, and this is reflected in the quality of Kite Glass products across all processes. Kite Glass has been a BSI Kitemark™ licensee since 1990.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is both pragmatic and straightforward: we respond quickly to enquiries, work with our customers to establish exactly what they need, and then deliver to agreed budgets and deadlines.

As seasoned and knowledgeable experts in our field, we provide technical support as an integral part of our customer service. As a result, we are always on hand to help with detailed advice and assist with projects.
