MIG managing director Alan Taylor said: “We’ve had a great partnership with KCP who have supported us as we have expanded our production capabilities and reach in the glass processing market. MIG is in an excellent position for the next stage of its development.”
KCP managing partner Owen Trotter, added: “KCP is very happy to have played a role in the MI Glass story. In addition to delivering a return to our investors it has been a pleasure to work with a UK manufacturer with such a strong focus on customer service and quality. We wish Alan, Glenn and their team every success in the future.”
