Royal visitor 'will bring a touch of glass'

29 August 2012

Glass manufacturer Beatson Clark will welcome a royal visitor to its plant in Rotherham, South Yorkshire next month. Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO, will tour the factory on Thursday 6 September to see how £10 million of recent investments, including a new white flint (clear glass) furnace, have improved operations at the factory.

He will be one of the first people to inspect the new £5.4m furnace, which went into full operation earlier this month.

Beatson Clark employees will explain the glass-making process to the Duke as he looks round the factory, and the Duke will also have lunch with members of the company’s Board of Directors.

He will unveil a plaque to commemorate his visit and sign the visitors’ book before continuing on a tour which will also include a visit to Rotherham Hospice on Broom Road and a garden party in Clifton Park.

“It is a great honour for us to welcome the Duke to our factory and we are looking forward to showing him how the glass process works and what Beatson Clark can offer to the marketplace,” said Lynn Sidebottom, Sales and Marketing Director at Beatson Clark.

Beatson Clark makes glass containers for a wide range of household brands, including Crabbie’s, Bell’s Buttercup, Lyle’s Golden Syrup and Lemsip.
