It’s Business As Unusual - Oxford Firm Stays Open

Glazpart HQ

The Glazpart factory in Banbury is still operational to support customers - especially those serving the NHS, medical and food markets.

Dean Bradley says: "We are still accepting orders from all our customers alongside these key market customers in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic - and this is thanks to the dedication, commitment and flexibility of our team in Banbury.

"Indeed, we are actively looking to support medical device customers and their injection moulding supply chain. If we can assist as a full-service moulding company in any way from contract moulding, complete tool room services, machining or assembly, all they have to do is contact us. And if anybody out there reading this, knows where this offer of help could be beneficial - please pass our details on."


Safe working

Glazpart has not taken the decision to keep going lightly and has introduced recommended measures to ensure safety:

  • The factory is operating additional cleaning and PPE control measures.

  • Employees are working remotely where possible.

  • Glazpart is working closely with delivery contractors ensure the company can continue to deliver - although signed POD’s currently may not be available.

  • The company is working closely with its supply chain to source the right stock.

  • Non-essential meetings on or off-site have been cancelled. Account managers are available as usual via existing and new communications mechanisms. There is full product support by email and phone.

According to Bradley: “There have been a huge amount of work and planning to achieve our current position to safely continue to be able to supply product. We are monitoring the Government’s advice closely and operations may change depending on this advice.”
