Glaston closes deal for three FC500™ furnaces in the United States

Glaston Corporation has closed a significant deal with U.S based Trulite Glass & Aluminium Solutions for three FC500™ tempering furnaces including iControL Quantum™ Automation and Reporting system and Glaston Care service agreements.  The order is split between the Q3 and Q4 2015 order book.

The machines are delivered during the first and second quarters in 2016.

In addition to the FC500™ furnace deal the parties have earlier agreed on major upgrades for two Glassrobots’ machines as well as on other machine upgrades and relocations. 

Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions is one of North America’s largest architectural glass and aluminum fabricators. The company manufactures and distributes architectural aluminum, insulated units, mirrors, tempered, laminated, and decorative glass from their 28 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.

‘It was a true pleasure to meet with Trulite’s top Management at Glass Build America in Atlanta, and hear the obvious excitement they have for the future growth of their operations, and how Glaston plays a significant role in this“, says Arto Metsänen, Glaston Corporation’s President & CEO.

“Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions is very excited to build on our partnership with a true leader in convection furnace technology. Glaston continues to raise the bar with industry leading solutions that produce superior optical surface quality in high performance glass products. Along with these investments Trulite is also well underway with 4 other Glaston furnace projects and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership. Our success together is based on providing superior quality flat glass products to meet and or exceed our customer’s needs”, says Paul Mahedy, Executive Vice President, Trulite Glass and Aluminum Solutions.

Launched in 2011, the Glaston FC500™ tempering line has gained a solid position on the market.

“Glaston FC500™ tempering furnace responds excellently to our customer’s needs. This furnace is well-known for high capacity, energy efficiency and ease of use as well as for the premium quality of the end products. The FC500™ has established itself as the number one choice for customers who value superior optical quality and want to explore new capabilities”, says Arto Metsänen.
