Our Story

Pearsons Glass

Pearsons Glass was founded in Liverpool, England in 1901 as the family firm J Pearson and Company, specialising in silvering, bevelling and the manufacture of cabinet doors.

In 1977 we incorporated as Pearsons Glass Limited, moved to a larger site, and began the now continuous process of investment in the latest machinery and equipment. We have also concentrated on building and strengthening the manufacturing team, and have our own in-house specialists in finance, I.T, logistics, manufacturing, engineering and HR.

Processing Division

The manufacturing and processing is based in a 25,000 sq. ft. factory just a mile north of the world-famous Liverpool Pier Head, in a developing area of the city. The common factors which cover the hundreds of different jobs produced every week are their individual specifications, the attention to detail required and the short time scales allowed. We pride ourselves on the flexibility we have to achieve these aims, which is helped by the use of the most modern machinery available within the industry and our investment in staff training.

Processes include the traditional cutting, shaping, polishing, bevelling, drilling and sandblasting, as well as painting, printing, specialist laminating, UV bonding and toughening.

We deliver with our own modern fleet of vehicles throughout the UK.

Stained & Art Glass Division

Until the early 1980s, there was no one-stop location from which coloured glass artist could obtain their supplies, including ancillary items such as lead came and tools. Pearsons Glass were amongst the pioneers in setting up that facility. Having incorporated James Hetley & Co. and Bohle Art Glass into our company, we are now proud to be by far the largest supplier of these products in the UK.

We have a modern warehouse unit in Liverpool close to road and rail links, with a comprehensive stock of materials from which to choose for your projects and commissions. Because of our worldwide network of strategic manufacturers and partners we are able to acquire imported supplies quickly.

A programme of tuition courses for both professionals and hobbyists is available on site and we are increasingly developing our social media connections.

There is also a shop online facility easily accessible via this website, containing an extensive catalogue, and goods purchased are delivered either by our own fleet of vehicles or specialist carriers.
