Ritec was on top of the world in the Rhine Tower for ClearShield® 35th Anniversary

Ritec celebrated the 35th Anniversary of its unique and ground-breaking ClearShield® with a special event in Düsseldorf’s tallest building.


A private function was held in Düsseldorf unmissable attraction, the Rheinturm (Rhine Tower). 240.5 metre high, the telecommunications tower also houses a revolving restaurant, a bar and an observation deck.


A number of special guests were invited in addition to Ritec’s staff and international Marketing Partners to celebrate.


Ritec’s founders, Stephen and Karen Byers, were overwhelmed by the event, saying ‘We are very delighted to be surrounded by so many friends, and grateful to everyone for their huge support over the years.’

A very special thank you from all at Ritec to everyone who attended, and to anyone who could not be there but who contributed to this incredible success.

ClearShield® still pulls a crowd after 35 years

After 35 years of pioneering durable glass surface protection, Ritec has demonstrated that its ClearShield Eco-System™ still pulls a crowd.


The company marked this milestone with a host of exciting developments including its new One Stop Solutions concept, a new 3-way Guarantee for added value, performance and profit improvement, a new Peace of Mind Pledge and an improved range of application equipment.


Ritec illustrated the highly effective renovation capacity of the System and the award-winning ClearShield® protection in a wide range of applications with impressive track records.


Glasstec 16 attracted a record number of international glass processors and fabricators,
architects and other specifiers. We thank everyone that stopped by the
stand and will be in touch with all of you soon.

Read Anthony’s story and help him raise money to save lives

We are very proud to announce that our On-Site Supervisor Anthony Hawkes, who survived leukaemia 18 months ago, is now running the Tough Mudder London South event in September for Anthony Nolan.


Anthony Nolan is an incredible organisation that matches individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants. They save lives every day.

If you would like to support Anthony, you may find his fundraising page here.

In Anthony Hawkes’s own words: ‘I’m running the Tough Mudder London South event on 25th September and want to raise money and awareness for Anthony Nolan. It’s very close to my heart as I was diagnosed with AML leukaemia and told that I needed a transplant. I then received a stem cell transplant 18 months ago and have been very lucky in my recovery. I’m not only wanting to achieve raising money, but also want to show that you can survive and get back to strength and hopefully give hope to people who are in the position I was in, feeling like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. If it wasn’t for the Anthony Nolan register I wouldn’t be here with my two little girls.’

Anthony, everyone at Ritec is very proud of you and wish you the best of luck on your fundraising challenge.
