DARTINGTON CRYSTAL HISTORY

Dartington Crystal was founded in June 1967 in Torrington, North Devon by the Dartington Hall Trust, a charity which then aimed to assist the economic regeneration of rural areas through business, education and the arts. In the early sixties the trust had become concerned that north Devon was becoming depopulated as a lack of job opportunities forced people to move elsewhere to find work. The glass-making factory was intended to be a solution this problem, conceived as a centre of employment giving local people a reason to stay in the area. The company thrived from here growing into a worldwide brand recognised for its quality and design led manufacturing.

Demand outstripped production in the 1970s and the factory had to be expanded. By the 1980s the modern image of Dartington had attracted the attention of Wedgwood who took up a large stake in the business, allowing for further expansion. Dartington Crystal underwent another Management Buy Out in April 2006, safeguarding many skilled jobs in the area. Dartington Crystal bought Scottish-based Caithness Glass out of receivership in October 2006 and also owns Royal Brierley Crystal which is based in the West Midlands.
