Malcolm Armfield
Malcolm ArmfieldOperations Director
Malcolm is the founder of Armfield Glass UK Ltd. His entire career has been dedicated to the craft of glass starting with his first job out of school where he was trained in cutting, glazing and restoration.

Since then, he has worked on numerous commercial and residential projects and secured exclusive work with embassies, art galleries, luxury car manufacturers, leading banks, musicians and motorsport teams.

Malcolm’s expertise led him to be invited to the board of the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and the opportunity to work with the British Board of Agrément (BBA) in the development and testing of safety glass.

He developed, manufactured and installed the first post-tension glass spiral stair and recently composed a new safe glazing strategy to replace failed bespoke Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) at the top of 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin).
