Glaston has signed an agreement for the delivery of an FC series flat tempering machine to the Finnish insulating glass manufacturer Best Glass Oy.

The order is part of Glaston third-quarter expected order intake. The machine will be delivered to the customer in Nivala, Finland by the end of 2017.

Best Glass aims to become Finland’s leading insulating glass manufacturer. The company manufactures all the elements of modern glass construction, such as insulating glass and tempered as well as laminated safety glass.

Best Glass invests in modern production and the high quality of its end products.In addition to Finland, the company’s products are also sold in Sweden and Norway.

“Finland’s glass processing market is relatively small, and in recent years the market has been subdued.Last year, Finland accounted for around one per cent of our company’s turnover. As a Finnish company, we are particularly pleased to have been selected as the supplier of Best Glass’ new tempering line,” says Glaston’s Pekka Hytti, Senior Vice President, EMEA.

“Due to tightening safety glass regulations, demand for safety glass is increasing, and we are seeking to meet this demand in the growing markets of Sweden and Norway, in addition to Finland. Quality and efficiency were key issues for us when making the investment decision. Thanks to the FC machine, our capacity will grow and we will be able to produce larger glass sizes efficiently without compromising quality,” explains Best Glass' Managing Director, Teemu Ohtamaa.

Glaston’s FC series machines are renowned for their high capacity, energy efficiency, in-built processing intelligence and ease of use, and particularly the high quality of the end product.
