Dixon Glass

We are experts in our field. We are also enthusiasts; highly skilled and experienced craftsmen who manufacture and supply a full range of bespoke and standard scientific and non-scientific borosilicate glassware.

We make beautiful things. Most of the things that we make are also practical. We manufacture specialised scientific glassware for an extremely varied group of enterprises; chemical, petrochemical, nutritional analysis, metallurgy, pharmaceutical, agribusiness, lighting, designers, artists, film studios, museums, research and development labs, restaurants, television shows, displays, government research labs, emissions companies, water companies, the education sector, individuals, pilot plant manufacture, specialist manufacturers, the list is almost endless. Borosilicate glass is used in just so many industries in one form or another and as we specialise in specials it follows that we deal with all.

We also supply standard laboratory glassware (beakers, flasks, microscope slides etc) to whomever has a need. We are not just a distributor selling widgets. We are independent professional glassblowers, free of limiting commercial tie-ups and we know what we are looking at when we examine a scientific glass vessel. We have therefore carefully chosen the products that we hold in stock.

Welcome to Dixon Glass

Dixon Glass are specialist scientific glassblowers. We are shortly launching a new web site so if you wish to contact us please ring us on + 44 (0) 208 7786458 or email us on info@dixonglass.co.uk.

We are specialist scientific glassblowers, and our principal medium is borosilicate glass 3.3, ISO 3585. Not only do we manufacture scientific and non-scientific glassware, but we also supply laboratory glassware. Furthermore, we supply a full range of borosilicate tubing and rod. But we provide more than just borosilicate glassware.

We also supply a truly excellent range of laboratory plastics, as well as laboratory ceramics and filter paper, of course microscope slides and cover slips, and we also manufacture certain wooden manometers and Blaine air permeability apparatus sets. All product can be badged according to specification, and even blanks provided should you so wish.

There are some products that started out as one off specials that have matured into complete product lines. For these types of products, we find ourselves as the sole worldwide producer of certain types of product.

We are an organisation that focuses on value for money. Our top of the range line of standard laboratory glassware is as good as any other on the market. Yet it is available at a discount to the heavily marketed premium brands.

For the cost conscious that still want the very best, we offer a line that is very hard to beat - in fact, if we could find a better value product range in the world then that is what we would be selling.

Our advantage over other organisations is that our roots are in professional scientific glassblowing. And not just mass production work, either. We specialise in specials. That means that within what is already an area of skilled manufacture, we are more skilled than the average glassblowing company. This is borne out by the type of work that we take on; other companies tell clients that the specialist item that they want is too difficult to manufacture, whilst this is precisely the sort of project that we thrive on and is our staple workload. In short, we begin where many other glassblowing companies give up. With such a background, you can be assured that what you are purchasing with regard to standard or specialised glassware is of high quality.
