Edgetech I.G., a leader in product and service solutions for the insulating glass industry, announced the appointment of Bob Mecomonaco to product manager.

In his new position, Mecomonaco is responsible for further developing the Eco Coat Glass Protection System product line and providing customer assistance. Formerly the national sales director for Edgetech’s sister company Lauren Manufacturing, Mecomonaco brings many years of sales and executive experience to Edgetech.

“We are very excited to have Bob on board,” said Larry Johnson, executive vice president for Edgetech. “Bob’s sales and executive experience at Lauren Manufacturing will serve him well to manage and grow this important product line for Edgetech, as well as promote and implement horizontal thinking across Lauren International companies. It is exciting to see further evidence of our combined strength as we share talent between our various businesses.”

Edgetech partnered with Eco Coat Glass Protection Systems of Canada in 2006 to develop this proprietary, environmentally friendly glass protection product, which is applied to the glass and frame to protect windows against freight damage and construction debris. Eco Coat is simple to apply and evenly covers every part of the window and frame and can be easily and safely removed when construction is complete. “The Eco Coat Glass Protection System, as well as our other product solutions, are in very high demand,” Johnson said. “In particular, Eco Coat’s popularity is growing tremendously for commercial applications where protecting windows from construction debris and freight damage saves money and time associated with replacing damaged units.”

In addition to adding value through its flagship product Super Spacer®, Edgetech is a full-service solutions provider to the fenestration industry with an array of products and services that save money and improve operations for its customers. As part of its Edgetech 360 value promise to customers, the company offers products, such as the Eco Coat Glass Protection System, E-Z RAD™ Grid Placement Table, UVEKOL® Glass Laminating System and the Form8tor® Vinyl Profile Bending System.

“In today’s market, our customers are seeking new ways to differentiate themselves and to save money wherever possible,” Johnson said. “The products we choose to distribute help them do just that. Providing value-added products and experienced personnel, such as Bob Mecomonaco, is just another way we are helping our customers take their businesses to the next level.”
