Who we are

Glass Solutions was established to deliver complete process solutions to science and industry. Using our expertise in bespoke scientific glass manufacturing and our engineering prowess, Glass Solutions created complete solutions for our customers. The business has now evolved to focus on the scientific glass products for engineers to integrate into their own designs but still bringing a deep understanding of how to incorporate glass components within an engineered mechanical assembly. Our team take great pleasure in advising and supporting our clients in their endeavours, helping them to overcome the challenges of combining glass and other engineering materials.

Our products – Laboratory Glassware

Glass Solutions has an extensive range of established products product designs that cater to a diverse array of scientific needs. These designs can form the basis of bespoke scientific glass solutions that meet your specific needs. This extensive library of bespoke laboratory glassware can be easily reproduced or modifications to the design can be made at minimal cost or delay. Manufacturing of scientific glassware can be performed cost effectively in single units or can be scaled up to multiple 1000s. There is no barrier to achieving a bespoke glass component or system, even if the demand is for a single item.

Our services

In addition to providing access to many of the world’s most advanced scientific glass-blowing techniques, the team can advise you on custom glassware design and applications. Laboratory glass is a familiar sight in every lab, however, the knowledge of integrating this material within scientific instruments and systems is not so common. If you have identified glass as the right material for your product but you’re not sure how best to implement its use then we are here to help.

Engineered glass products and components

If you need an engineered metal or plastic component for your product, you may contact a precision engineering workshop. If you need a component in glass, where do you go?

Bespoke scientific glassblower, Glass Solutions, is able to produce both prototype and production volumes of borosilicate glass components.
