Since the late 1990s, the larger business has been at the forefront of container glass manufacturing, with £500m invested into its plants. Encirc is part of Spanish glass company Vidrala, which also has sites in Milan and Portugal.

Encirc was formerly Quinn Glass, part of the manufacturing empire of Sean Quinn. The Co Fermanagh tycoon lost control of his businesses in 2011. Quinn Glass was bought by Vidrala in a €408.6m (£316.3m) deal in 2015.
