Twelve hires have been made across managerial roles, with the second phase of job openings set to launch.

The most recent recruits are all working remotely but there is hope that a temporary head office can be established in St Helens.

Glass Futures general manager Aston Fuller said: “We hope to be recruiting a further five full-time members of staff to join us early in 2021 and these will be a variety of key roles around Industry 4.0, project engineering business development, media and marketing.

“The team are all working extremely well together at the moment, albeit remotely, and there is real excitement and a team spirit already apparent as we take rapid steps towards establishing the Glass Futures’ Centre of Excellence.”

The £54 million in-development facility will be capable of producing 30 tonnes of sustainable glass a day, which will be used in products such as jars, bottles, windows and doors.
