More than 50 years of quality, style and durability
In 1954, Grandfather Albert Glorieux started a glass and mirror wholesale business in the Belgian town of Kuurne. Albert had a nose for business and saw the potential of plastics. In 1961 he produced the first corrugated sheets under the name Glovo Plastiek. Seven years later, he started making polyester barrel vaults. In 1971, the first skylights saw the light of day. Today, more than 50 years after Albert started the business, our daylight solutions are known across Europe for their quality, style and durability. Jean Glorieux is the third generation, carrying on the vision of his father and grandfather and bringing his own energy and ideas.
The wonder of daylight
There are very few things that are free and offer as many benefits as daylight
Artificial light can upset our biorhythms and lead to mood swings. By contrast, daylight is great for our health. Having access to enough daylight is essential to getting through the day feeling well-balanced and without fatigue.Daylight is free – it doesn’t come from a power outlet. The more daylight you let into your home or workplace, the less artificial light you need. That not only reduces your electricity bill, it’s kind to the environment too.
Healthy, sustainable and ecological
Skylux chooses to integrate long-term health in its mission for all life on our planet and for the planet itself
We therefore also value the health and safety of Skylux employees, partners and customers as well as sustainable entrepreneurship and ecological awareness. In this regard, we are working on some exciting projects: a complete switch to electric company cars, solar panels on all our company buildings, sustainable waste management, etc.
Green industrial zone
Our first step is to “adopt” beehives
Together with Bolwerk – a free cultural zone that focuses on creation, meeting people, amazement and ecology – Skylux is working on a green industrial area. Our first step is to “adopt” beehives at Bolwerk and to share the homemade honey with our customers. The next step is to create flower meadows on our premises. Not only do the bees benefit from this, but our employees also find a place to relax and meet each other here.
