Glaston has closed a deal worth somewhat below EUR 2.0 million with a leading Asia-Pacific glass processor, which supplies demanding glass solutions to the architectural glass industry of the region.

The deal has been recognised in Glaston’s 2017 final quarter order book, and it is part of the quarter’s anticipated order intake. The tempering line will be delivered to the customer in summer 2018. 

The sold tempering line will be the Asia-Pacific region’s largest FC Series™ machine, enabling the customer to gain a significant competitive advantage as the region’s most capable operator in terms of glass sizes and machine performance. 

“As the Asia-Pacific market develops, construction quality requirements are increasing. This is evident, for example, in growing demand for high quality glass, which in turn reflects positively on Glaston,” says Sasu Koivumäki, Glaston’s Senior Vice President, Machines. 

The customer is aiming for significant growth, particularly through energy-efficient glass construction solutions.  

“The customer’s decision was positively influenced by Glaston’s global references, technology leadership and, in particular, by the large FC Series™’ suitability for the customer’s growth strategy,” says Frank Zhang, Glaston’s Senior Vice President, Asia.
