THE Duke of Gloucester will be one of the first people to inspect a factory’s new £5.4 million furnace when he visits Rotherham.
The Royal visitor will tour glass manufacturer Beatson Clark on September 6.
He will look around the factory to see how £10m of investment, including a new white flint furnace, have improved operations.
“It is a great honour for us,” said Lynn Sidebottom, sales and marketing director.
“We look forward to showing him how the glass process works.”
