Two of the industry’s leading trade bodies, the Glass & Glazing Federation and Council for Aluminium in Building, have pledged to work more closely together to present a more unified front to government and other policy makers.

Speaking at a round table event hosted by Glass Express Midlands, GGF MD John Agnew and CAB CEO Nigel Headford agreed they would overcome historic challenges and develop strategies together along with other like-minded trade associations to create a single voice for the industry.

Their pledge was praised by former DLUHC minister Eddie Hughes MP who said: “Government Ministers and Civil Servants endeavour to work with all interested parties to ensure that Building Regulations are workable,” he said. “In the case of the glass and glazing industry, I think a single unified body representing the interests of all parties is a sensible idea.

“I look forward to working closely with glass and glazing industry to develop stronger and more meaningful partnerships.”

Glass Express Midlands’ managing director Arun Photay later concluded: “To have two of our industry leaders agree to closer co-operation and speak to government with a unified voice is an excellent result.”
