Phil Tweedie, group finance director for Norwich-based Anglian Group has been appointed chairman of the Glass and Glazing Federation, the primary trade association for companies that make, supply or fit flat glass and related products, representing more than 60 per cent of the industry’s turnover.

The move comes at a critical time for the industry, with economic and environmental issues high on the agenda. With 13 years’ experience in the glazing business at Anglian, Mr Tweedie will play an important role in steering the industry towards greater technological innovation.

Mr Tweedie said: “I am honoured to have been asked to join the GGF board, giving me an opportunity to further focus the industry on developing solutions to reduce energy consumption. It is an important time for the glass and glazing industry, particularly with the forthcoming introduction of the Green Deal scheme. Increasing energy costs mean home owners are looking for ways to reduce their energy requirements and the GGF has a central role to play in challenging the industry to develop and provide affordable ways to do this.”

Anglian is at the forefront of glass technology with products such as its state-of-the-art A rated EcoGain windows, as well as being one of the pioneering Green Deal providers.

This latest company news serves to further strengthen its position within the industry. Already the UK’s biggest double glazing window, door and conservatory specialist, Anglian continues to invest heavily in the research and development of the next generation of energy efficient glazing and home improvement products.
