A Teesside crystal supplier who has made gifts for Lady Gaga, Ronaldo and even the Queen is turning 35.
Crystal Galleries sells trophies, drinkware and gifts to trade clients around the world – and its end customer roll-call reads like a who’s who of household names.
Footballing legend Pele, Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United, Formula 1, Princess Margaret and Harrods are among the famous recipients of their products.
And they are the largest supplier of wholesale glass and crystal ‘blanks’ in the UK.
From humble beginnings in 1983, Crystal Galleries has always been a family-run business – originally set up to meet local demand for sport trophies, wedding gifts, awards and promotional items.
The firm saw an opportunity to supply trade customers throughout the UK and Europe, and has grown steadily ever since.
It’s moved three times and now has a 33,000 sq ft warehouse in Middlesbrough, employing 67.
Jeremy Lowes, Managing Director, said: “We decorate products here, using sand-blasting and engraving techniques – and we’ve invested around £250,000 in the last three years.
“Swarovski crystal-encrusted products are one of the top sellers.”
