Glass is an essential component in any modern building, but we do not often stop to think about the complex process behind its development and manufacture.

If we did, we would probably know that Finnish corporation Glaston offers the largest customer service network in the glass process industry and the most comprehensive range of glass processing machinery anywhere.

Glass plays a significant role in creating a bright and pleasant living environment, and this is why the use of glass – particularly safety glass – in buildings, vehicles and appliances is growing all the time. Glass offers a distinctive look, and large windows let in lots of natural daylight while providing people with a safe and energy efficient environment.

This trend, obviously, benefits Glaston, the world’s leading glass processing machinery manufacturer, with production facilities in Finland, Italy, Brazil and China.

Tougher energy saving and safety regulations are increasing the use of technically demanding glass solutions, and it is in exactly these areas that Glaston’s products are at their strongest.
