Now on board - Newport Industries

Newport Industries have been providing the glass industry with soda ash and other raw materials for more than 13 years. Handling around 180,000 metric tons of soda ash each year, they’re a vital importer in the UK. They recently announced a £7m investment in Peel Ports’ new bulk handling facility at the Port of Liverpool. Raj Patel, Managing Director of Newport Industries, said: “Canada Dock, a state of the art facility, will combine our technical expertise of the products we supply, with a 24-hour supply chain for all our consumers in the North of England.”

Newport is a member of Peel Ports’ major carbon emission initiative, Cargo200, which aims to reduce UK freight mileage by 200million miles over the next five years. 

Dave Dalton, CEO of British Glass, says: “We’re delighted to have Newport Industries as a sponsor of Glass Focus 2016.  It’s companies like Newport, and initiatives like this, that are fundamental to the glass industry being in a great position to adapt and thrive. Working across the supply chain to reduce environmental impact, and working flexibly and efficiently, is vital for the manufacturing sector to help it meet the challenges of the coming decades. That’s precisely why we welcome all parts of the supply chain into our membership and are so excited to bring together such a range of players at Glass Focus 2016 to collectively help shape a vision for the future of glass manufacturing.”
