We are a team of glass blowers who each have over 40 years’ experience in the industry.
The company was set up in August 1998 after working for a multi-national company for 25 years.
We have a customer base that includes Universities, Health Services, Avionics and Space, Deep Sea Research and independent Research facility Laboratories. However, we always look forward to welcoming new clients.
Scientific Glassblowing has always been at the forefront of innovation, from the simple light bulb to fibre optic technology. Without the humble glassblower in his workshop, there would still be Alchemists instead of Chemists, Optical Magicians instead of Opticians.
We would not see the wonder of the stars around us unless lenses were made, mirrors polished and who could forget the good old fashioned Cathode Ray Tube, the start of television could be blamed on the glassblower.
Our Managing Director, William Fludgate, is the current Chairman of the British Society of Scientific Glassblowers. A position that we are extremely proud of and he has held the position since 2009.
