In keeping with the company’s energy efficient Super Spacer(R) products, the theme of the day was environmental developments in building design, and especially in next generation glazing.

Andy Jones, Edgetech’s European Managing Director comments: “It was wonderful to see so many people gathered together to help us celebrate the official inauguration of our 5 million Euro investment. As well as seeing production in action during guided tours of the facility, we were also able to show guests our planned further expansion including two more extrusion lines by early 2012, culminating in a total of 6 to support our 80% growth this year. Continental Europe is a strategically important market for Edgetech, and investing in Heinsberg, our third manufacturing facility sets out our commitment to achieve market leadership.”
