Glacier is the only glass supplier in the country with a dedicated focus and understanding of the refrigeration industry

Glacier was founded by Lourens Kriel in 1994 as a manufacturer of specialized glass doors for refrigerated applications. The business has, over time, expanded into a complete specialty glass solution for the supermarket industry with a growing footprint in glass toughening and processing.

Glacier has established a commanding market position providing specialist products supported by technical expertise and a dedicated experienced team in the four main activities namely, Glass processing, Insulated Doors, Shelving and Insulated panels.

Our Team  |  Glacier employs 130 people with a vast knowledge in the industry. As a compliant BBBEE contributor Glacier is committed to play a role in society whilst supplying superior cost effective products to our valued customers. This can only be achieved by training, communication and teamwork.
