New Technical Officer for the GGF

  • 17 Jun 2019

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has announced David Borland has joined the leading trade organisation as Technical Officer.

From a career which began in his family’s glazing business, David is a seasoned professional of the Glass & Window Industry.

He has nearly 40 years’ experience in Production, Operations & Technical management in most areas of the trade including IGUs, Toughened Glass, Laminated Glass, Digital Printing, Decorative Glass, Aluminium & uPVC doors and windows.

This experience and his knowledge have latterly seen him work as Technical Manager for Emirates Glass in both Dubai and, subsequently, in India, as well as an 18 month spell in Malaysia as Production Director for DDG Glass.

Throughout his career, he has had a strong involvement with Production Improvement and Quality Control, which has also brought with it an extremely broad knowledge of the industry.

His grass roots knowledge, together with a strong technical background, will no doubt prove to be a great asset to the GGF’s Technical Department.

Reflecting on his new role, David said: “I am delighted to join the GGF at a time when our industry faces many technical challenges. I am very much looking forward to working with GGF Members and helping advise them on key technical issues affecting our industry.”

Steve Rice, Director of Technical Affairs, added: “I am very pleased that David has joined the GGF Technical department. His wealth of expertise and knowledge will be of great value to the GGF and our Membership.”
