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.

Caring for the environment

We are committed to achieving environmental best practice throughout our business activities. We recognise that the pursuit of economic growth and a healthy environment must be closely linked. We also appreciate that ecological protection and sustainable development are collective responsibilities in which business, individuals and communities all have a role to play.

We only work with manufacturers who embrace this shared commitment and we are constantly striving to limit the impact our business has on the environment, both domestically and globally.

Ethically Sourced

Dixon Science globally source product from the world’s largest suppliers of laboratory glassware. We work hard to understand our supply chains, including quality control, health and safety, environmental, labour and human rights issues. We will always work with suppliers to make improvements where their practices fall short of our high expectations.

Going Green

Dixon Science have made the commitment to become a carbon neutral business by 2021. Amongst other initiatives, we have embraced the latest Photo Voltaic technology to provide enough electricity to power our U.K Distribution centre as well contributing energy back to the National Grid.


It could be argued that the glass industry is the home to recycling! As the material structure does not deteriorate when reprocessed, 100% of waste glass can be reclaimed and used in the manufacturing process. Every ton of glass recycled saves 1.3 tons of raw materials and 315 kg of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere during the creation of new glass, saving the landscape and saving energy.
