We acknowledge that no two projects are the same and our customers often require buildings to suit individual requirements. However, supplying suitable facilities for staff that provide comfortable and functional workspaces is an essential deciding factor.

Illustration of Industry

Glasdon is a leading producer of modular buildings and kiosks. Pre-assembled, durable structures that are available in a range of sizes and ideal staff accommodation for a variety of industries.
