Morley Glass Named Finalist In Made In Yorkshire 2024 Awards

by | Jan 3, 2024 | Awards

The post-consumer glass recycling initiative developed by Morley Glass in conjunction with Saint-Gobain Glass has been shortlisted for another award.

The company has been named a finalist in the ‘Sustainable Ethical Manufacturer Award’ category of the Made in Yorkshire 2024 Awards. This is an annual awards programme which highlights excellence in businesses based in Yorkshire and the Humber, with previous winners including Senior Aluminium Systems, Gripple and the UK’s largest caravan and holiday homes manufacturer Swift Group.

The shortlisting recognises the Morley Glass post-consumer glass recycling scheme as one of the best sustainability initiatives in the region over the past 12 months, reflecting the collaboration between the Yorkshire-based firms involved.

Morley Glass is based near Leeds, where it crushes end-of-life IGUs collected from installers into cullet, which is then used by Saint-Gobain Glass to manufacture new energy efficient glass at its Eggborough factory near Selby.

Ian Short, managing director of Morley Glass said, “Yorkshire has such a rich heritage of manufacturing excellence and innovation, which is why it is particularly special to be recognised as one of the best. And it is pleasing to be shortlisted given how we’ve structured the scheme to benefit the region at a local community level through the thousands of pounds worth of funding we’ve made available to charities, groups and individuals working on environmental or social improvements.”

The winners of the Made in Yorkshire 2024 Awards will be announced at a presentation ceremony taking place on 7th March 2024 at New Dock Hall in Leeds.
