Founded in 1977, Ashtree Glass is a family owned UK manufacturing company based in Bradford. Ashtree are involved in the design and manufacture of mirrors, mirror arms and mounting brackets for use on many different types of commercial vehicles and machines.
Exports were, for many years, relatively low in value but an ambitious plan of over-seas exhibitions and sales visits coupled with investment in new products has seen exports climb to over 40% of the company’s turnover. The domestic market has also benefited from the new products devel-oped, resulting in growth in home sales.
Ashtree maintains a policy of continuous investment and product development to grow business further. An example of this can be seen in this image of a new product still in development. The little girl viewed in the wide angle bottom lens would have been out of sight for drivers using a normal mirror. With this type of product Ashtree are hoping to help make a safer work environment.
