Glaston, a global leader in developing glass processing technology, has closed a deal for two FC Series flat tempering furnaces to HG-glas located in Herentals, Belgium.
The order was booked in Glaston’s Q3/2017 order book. The furnaces will be delivered during 2018, said a statement from the company.
Founded in 1900, HG-glas has for over 20 years specialised in industrial glass treatment to meet the high quality standard industry needs. The company was one of the first independent glass processing companies in Belgium to buy a tempering furnace, it said.
Following a consistent expansion plan HG-glas is today able to offer a wide range of highest quality glass products, it added.
In order to meet the growing demand HG-glas decided to invest in two new FC Series lines. Both lines will be integrated into an automated production line to be more productive, increase the energy savings and overall yield, said a statement.
The FC Series is well-known for high capacity, energy efficiency, built-in process intelligence and ease of use and above all for the premium quality of its end products.
Marc Vermeulen, managing director at HG-glas, said: “Investments in latest technology and carefully maintained machines has enabled us to deliver high quality products.”
“Today we can offer a wide range of glasses in various sizes and thicknesses thus giving us a solid position on the market,” he said.
Pekka Hytti, senior vice president, Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Glaston, said: “As we have previously said, in 2017 the EMEA area as a whole has been stable even if decision-making has been slow in many countries.”
“We have seen a steady flow of orders and market development has been firm. The Central European market has developed positively and demand has strengthened. With the new FC furnaces HG-glas will be able to meet the most demanding customer needs,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
