The company’s newly installed semi-automatic Super Spacer® applicator machine has already been chosen to produce the sealed units for prestigious properties in the beautiful Catalan ‘Costa Brava’ in Spain.
Joachim Stoss, managing director with responsibility for Edgetech in Europe comments: “We were thrilled to start working with Cristalleries Bisbal in 2014 but we are particularly pleased that our Super Spacer® product has contributed to their involvement in these stunning projects. Properties like this demand the best from their windows and the people that make them, so it’s a testament to the quality of sealed unit Cristalleries Bisbal manufactures that they have won this contract.”
Joan Burgas from Cristalleries Bisbal explains: “Super Spacer® was introduced to us by Edgetech’s distributor in Spain, Tekvimo, and we could immediately see its benefits. For a relatively small investment we can make units faster and more efficiently as well as offer a superior product compared with our competition. The other benefit we have found is the minimal space needed to stock the different reels of spacer – that has made the production process so much quicker and easier for us. Similarly, customers are amazed at how quickly we can manufacture their more complex shaped units and they love its aesthetic appeal because you can’t really see it in the unit once installed.
We were excited to be able to offer Super Spacer® for these latest projects too. These properties have a futuristic feel so the modern, sleek look of our units now fit in perfectly. The customers didn’t hesitate – they could see straight away that we had the right products for their properties. The units we are supplying are 2 x 2 meters or 2.5 x 5 meters.”
Jacinto Mora of Tekvimo concludes: “It’s always nice when you can find exactly the right product for a customer – a product you know will enhance their business in lots of ways. That is exactly what has happened with the introduction of Super Spacer® into Cristalleries Bisbal’s product offering. Quality companies such as Cristalleries Bisbal are always quick to see the benefits Super Spacer® has to offer them. With excellent aesthetics and thermal performance, as well as production efficiencies, it’s the clear choice for many glass companies in Spain and globally.”
