Who We Are

Glasdon are a market leader in the supply of environmental and safety products, with a focus on combining excellent quality and low maintenance with sustainability and value.

As part of our efforts to be a socially responsible company, we play an active part in supporting the communities in which we operate. Making donations, offering sponsorships and gifting our products to charities and community groups are just a few ways in which we aim to give back.

Formerly known as the Glasdon Charitable Giving Committee, the DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme meets bi-monthly to consider which activities we wish to support. These activities are funded by Glasdon Group Limited, with the full support of our Founder and Chairman, Donald J Sidebottom MBE, FCIHT and the Board of Directors.

Glasdon Group Limited are fully committed to Corporate Social Responsibility, which is why staff members are always encouraged to get involved with fundraising initiatives throughout the year. As a company, we participate in various work-based fundraising events such as bake sales and dress-up days, where Glasdon employees from all across the company get involved to raise money for a good cause.

Examples of fundraising events that Glasdon employees participate in include; Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, Jeans for Genes, Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day and BBC Children In Need.

The DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme, funded by Glasdon Group Limited, will also match any money raised from staff donations and fundraising events with our own contribution.
