Spectrum Glass Update - Production Starts!


Oceanside Glass

What a great start to 2017!

The main staff of the old Spectrum production and sales teams have now moved to California, and are working at Oceanside to assist with the production of their new range. The anticipated roll-out plan is as follows...

Early 2017

Oceanside are expecting a list of all available glasses to be produced and distributed. The list will consist of all of the popular colours and clears in all textures.

Once the glasses are confirmed, production starts! Oceanside will Initially start to produce different glasses from the available range, which we believe to include smooth, rough rolled and waterglass. They anticipate it may take upwards of 6 months to run through the first pallet range and then start again.

Spring 2017

We will meet the Oceanside team in Europe to see initial samples of the range, confirm sizes, availability, cut-ability and pricing. We hope to receive a full range of samples not long after our meet with the Oceanside team.

Autumn 2017

Pearsons Glass will expect to receive our first order of Oceansides new range of glasses, ready to distribute across the UK to our customer base.
