Allglass was built around an approach by people with experience in manufacturing glass beads and grains to the WM Tracey organization to expand their glass recycling operation into new products and markets.
The first furnace was built in 2005 with the second furnace installed in 2007, taking plant capacity up to 15,000 tonnes per year.
During 2005/2006 we expanded our customer base to 3000 tonnes of sales.
The Geveko Group, the largest user of glass beads in Europe, became 50% shareholders in Oct 2007 and 100% owners in February 2009.
