Morley Glass & Glazing, the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of integral blinds, is celebrating being shortlisted at the prestigious G18 awards.

“We’re thrilled to have been named as a finalist in the G18 Component Supplier of the Year award. The nomination is a testament to how hard our team has worked together over the last year, as they have every year since Morley Glass started in 1998.”

In February 2018, Morley Glass commissioned its second fully automated robot line, representing an investment of £700,000 and giving the business the capacity to manufacture up to 3000 sealed units per week. It also launched the exclusive SL16C and SL16SV; the first ScreenLine blind in the world to be incorporated within a 16-mm insulating glass unit – ideal for vertical sliding sash windows and composite doors due to its slimline 10mm slats.

The G18 Component Supplier of the Year Award recognises companies who may only serve a niche market, or companies who would not be able to fit into the other categories. The winners of the G18 awards will be announced at a ceremony on November 30th at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
