Here at Hodgson Sealants, we are proud to be founding members of the GGF: the Glass and Glazing Federation.
As manufacturers of a wealth of products designed to be sold within the glass and glazing industry, including fire-resistant glazing and weather-proof sealants, we know that our membership of the GGF is essential to broaden the knowledge, experience and specialist manufacturing skills on which we have built our strong reputation. A key supplier to the industry since the 1960s, our position as UK market-leaders provides us with an unrivalled understanding of the glass and glazing industry and close relationships with customers, manufacturers and end users alike.
Who is the GGF?
The Glass and Glazing Federation, known as the GGF, ‘represents companies who make, supply or fit glass and glass-related products in the UK and internationally.’ The organisation is the main representative for companies involved in every aspect of the production of flat glass services and products, for both domestic and commercial sectors and within all areas of glazing.
GGF members produce and install all types of glazing, however specialist. This includes installation of safety, fire and emergency glazing and special films. Recognised by the government, the GGF has a significant role in setting new industry standards and regulations, including The Building Regulations: the rules that govern and control the way our buildings are constructed in the UK.
What does our membership mean?
This year, 2017, marks the 40th anniversary of the Glass and Glazing Federation. For us at Hodgson Sealants, this is a very proud occasion. For our clients and consumers, our GGF membership is a strong endorsement of our knowledge and expertise. In order to become part of the GGF, stringent, high industry standards must be met: the GGF has a strict vetting process, and insists that all members work to the highest technical specifications in compliance with building regulations. Therefore, at Hodgson Sealants, we’re delighted to have met these standards consistently for 40 years.
Furthermore, our membership provides us with frequent updates from the GGF, ensuring that we remain at the forefront of all glass and glazing developments – helping us to deliver the products, support and technical expertise on which we pride ourselves. As founding members of the GGF, we’ve benefitted from this knowledge for 40 full years, regularly attending federation meetings that allow us to become true experts in our field.
Therefore, at Hodgson Sealants, we’re honoured to be able to confidently assure our customers that we wholly satisfy GGF requirements, giving you that crucial peace of mind for your next project.
