Halifax Glass: Yorkshire Glass Merchants
The Origins of Halifax Glass
Opened in 1981, Halifax Glass began as a one-man stained glass window operation run by founder Neil Oddy. Originally advertising in local papers, Neil completed every job himself, transporting glass on the back of his motorbike. This glass merchants garnered significant attention after being interviewed on the BBC; due to this increased popularity, Neil enlisted the help of a family member to keep up with the new demand. After a few years, Halifax Glass began to gain more commercial clients, and began to resemble the company our clients know today.
In 1986, Neil Oddy won the award for Young Businessman of the Year, a live elimination process event televised on ITV. The award was presented by Richard Branson and is still fondly remembered by customers of Halifax Glass to this day.
Over the years, our glass merchants moved from a more art-based stained-glass approach to the commercial style fittings that the company is best known for today. After becoming a trusted name in glass solutions, Halifax Glass even received numerous royal visits, including two from Prince Charles.
