There are now 3 factories producing more than 2000 sq. meters per day. The third factory, named H3 just opened this year and has a production area of 4000 sq. meters, able to produce 140 000 sq. meters of tempered and insulating glass every year.
H3 has been designed for high environmental efficiency, with 3600 sq. meters of solar panels and rain water harvesting that provides for 75% of the total consumption, for production and human consumption. This ties in with Lindes’ operation statement, their commitment to quickly bring the benefits of sustainable clean and affordable energy to as many people as possible. Free advice to architects and planners, manufacturers of commercial refrigerators and architectural glazing systems manufacturers is provided. “We try to be an example of how companies can contribute to generate less waste and reduce their carbon footprint.”
As a key part of the recent expansion, Ashton is installing a fully automatic arrissing/seaming, laser logo marking, edge deletion and furnace batching line, able to prepare up to 6 lites a minute for the Lindes tempering oven. Further parallel expansions are scheduled for the coming years, and we at Ashton are looking forward to playing an active role with the great team in Mexico!
