AGC has combined this advanced fabrication and processing equipment with the latest advances in software technology from FeneVision to provide customers with best-in-class service and quality.
The glass fabricated in the new facility will be processed using highly-automated equipment, increasing production efficiencies and expanding AGC’s fabrication capabilities. The new facility will have dedicated insulating glass lines to serve both commercial and residential markets, a CNC machine for heavy glass fabrication, and additional tempering capacity—with oversized tempering capabilities unique to the Southeast region. Additionally, AGC is expanding its production of Pyrobel® fire-rated glass into this facility to better serve customers in the Southeast.
“With so many processes managed within one location, the new FeneVision ERP software enables the alignment of a wide range of fabrication capabilities to be coordinated seamlessly, resulting in faster turnaround times, higher quality product and improved efficiencies—for us and for our customers,” states Shane Sieracki, Director of Operations-AGC Fabricated Products.
“This facility is a testament to our passion for customer service and our commitment to the North American market, as we continue to grow and serve a wider customer base,” adds Terrie Sommers, Vice President-AGC Fabricated Products.
