Celebrating 10 Years Of The Glass Wipe Board Company

Posted 1 month ago by BowlPhish

2020 is a big year for us here at The Glass Wipe Board Company – as it’s our 10th Birthday!

On reflecting on this milestone for the business, what’s been most exciting is seeing how our vision and values have come to life in this time, and how much they are an integral part of our day to day practices – how they are so much more than a statement on a piece of paper!

British. Bespoke. Sustainable

To celebrate our birthday, we hosted an event for our suppliers – to say thank you for their part in allowing us to provide the quality and service we do. Being able to manufacture in the UK is so important to us in ensuring we keep our carbon footprint as low as possible in supplying our British clients – and therefore these strong relationships with our local suppliers who share our values is essential. 

During the event we asked some of them to share their thoughts on what it meant to them to be a part of this shared journey and values:

  • “It’s been my privilege to work with them for the last couple of years. It’s an incredibly enthusiastic place to come, they’ve got a fantastic product, and all the people here are driven to do the best they can do. “  Chris Simpson – Going Long Consulting
  • “It’s nice to work with a company which has invested in its people. The ethos of the company is very much about investing in progression, while also improving their product.”  Lee Harland. Fit for Trade
  • “It’s great to work with a company and group people who are so passionate about what they do, who also have an outstanding product.”  Anthony Klokkou – Sleeping Giant Media
  • “The Glass Wipe Board Company are really great to work with - great experience, can’t fault them”  Michael Sharp – The Best Connection

We hosted the event in our newly completed staff breakout space The Destination. This is a space designed to encourage both spark ideas and creativity, while also being a great chill out space for our team. The well-being and personal growth of our team is an important value of ours – and so we’re really proud to have been able to provide them this great working environment.  You can see a sneak peek behind the scenes of the construction of this space here

Sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint and environmental impact is a huge value of ours – and over the last 10 years we’ve made significant investment in our in-house manufacturing and delivery process; the details of which we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks. 

It’s certainly an exciting time here at The Glass Wipe Board Company – but what's more exciting is what our next 10 years have in store. As you’d expect from a company whose product is all about sparking and sharing ideas, we’re not sure of inspiration! So, watch this space!

But in the meantime, we hope you enjoy the below wipe board animation below – which give just a snapshot of the history and values that have got us to where we are today, and on which we only hope to build on further.  

Thank you once again to everyone who attended and we hope to see you soon!

If you share our values in providing both sustainable and quality products for interior spaces, then we’ll love to hear from you.
