NEW MEDICAL GLASS MANUFACTURING IN ST HELENS
At the outset of the Town Deal process, Glass Futures was recognised as a project of international significance. The Town Deal Prospectus allowed for any projects of regional importance to be incorporated into a TIP and therefore in May 2020 the Chair introduced Glass Futures into the process as one of the projects for consideration. It would go on to make the final 8 projects and eventually benefit from 5.5 million of Town Deal Funding.
Glass Futures has supported the creation of SINA Medical Glass with shareholding partners SGC Group Intl Limited and Hambleden Capital. SINA Medical will convert a distribution warehouse into a modern medical glass manufacturing centre creating 180 jobs by 2025 and over 300 when fully operational by 2030.
