Bystronic Solution Centre Founded in Ottawa: New Technologies for a Growing Market

The Bystronic glass Group recently took over the Canadian technology company, Intra Product Development. Now called the Bystronic Solution Centre the company develops technologies for the cost-effective manufacturing of PVC windows.

Bystronic glass will therefore be in the position to offer its customers a complete solution concept from glass cutting through to finished windows. As a result, Bystronic will strive to maintain superior standards and as the leading global supplier aims to provide total solutions in the manufacturing of architectural and automotive glass.

Claus Rieger was appointed General Manager of the Bystronic Solution Centre, in addition to his positions as General Manager of Bystronic Inc. and Manager of the USA/NAFTA Market Region. Other members of the Management Team are the previous Intra owners Stephen Field and Michael Glover.

The Bystronic Solution Centre is now working together with partners in the glass and window industry to create innovative production methods for PVC windows.

The newly-developed Fusion AssemblyTM and Friction Corner WeldingTM manufacturing techniques will be launched on the American market next year.

Claus Rieger comments: “We are firmly convinced that the production process we have developed will have a permanent effect on the production of windows for the residential market. This new technique will make it possible for our customers to reach a significantly higher level of productivity with less material, fewer machines and a higher degree of automation. On the bottom line, this means more than significant cost reductions. At the same time, our customers will be able to achieve their individual design requirements with new materials“.

Once Fusion AssemblyTM and Friction Corner WeldingTM have been launched in the USA, these techniques will be expanded into other market sectors including Europe.

Bystronic is the global supplier of total solutions for the economical, application-engineered manufacture of architectural and automotive glass. With its innovative system solutions, technologies and services, the brand stands for lasting customer benefit, reliability and the best products on the market.
