 WHO ARE WE? ( a brief history)

 

 

So who are we and what do we do? 

Normandy Glass is a small family business which was established in 1988 by the proprietor and head of the family, Alain Rolland. Alain comes from Evreux in Normandy, France, hence the choice of name for his business.

He served his time after school as a ''miroitier'' which encompasses most things to do with glass and the glass trade. After arriving in England in 1980, he continued in the glass trade, working in the manufacture and fitting of double glazed units.

In 1988, he decided to start out on his own and Normandy Glass was established.

Moving over to Pendle with his family and new business, he soon gained a good reputation for his work and reliability, a reputation that he has maintained and built upon for the last twenty years.

The business has grown and developed over the years and the emphasis has moved from double glazing (although that is still an important part of the work), to Alain's personal passion which is stained glass.

The workforce consists of  Alain himself, his wife Anne, daughter Alice and future son-in-law Brian. All four members of staff are involved with all aspects of the job, from manufacture of the double glazing, to the restoration of old stained glass windows.
