Mid Devon Glass process quality with assistence from The Glass Machinery Company

In a contract worth in excess of £60,000, a range of products from The Glass Machinery Company have been installed at Mid Devon Glass in order to diversify the product range and help improve efficiency and output at the company.

The Tiverton based company has expanded manufacturing methods considerably by introducing in-house glass processing capabilities at the company’s manufacturing facilities.

The new installation includes a Zafferani Glas Flat 9 FPE edger which offers electronic straight-line edging using 9 cup wheels for the production of flat edge, along with a Zafferani Drum centrifugal system which was installed with the edger. Zafferani Glas as a company prides itself on always being at the forefront of technology and design innovation, having held a market leading position for over 50 years. The new venture for Mid Devon Glass also includes a horizontal double headed drill from the Meccanica Cambi SRL range. These machines will enable Mid Devon Glass to now produce items that were previously outsourced whilst at the same time will enable faster turnarounds of in-house manufacturing procedures, therefore improving customer services generally. On recommendation from a leading industry specialist, The Glass Machinery Company was approached by Managing Director, Kevin Squibb regarding the new installation.

Product quality and excellent support services have impressed Mr Squibb who is pleased with the production standards and after care services provided by Phil Birchall and his team. Mid Devon Glass was established just over 20 years ago supplying sealed units to both the commercial and domestic sector in and around the South West region. Careful product research went into the investment to ensure the machinery would meet the exacting requirements of Mid Devon Glass, who have established a standing for quality and reliability throughout the Devon, Dorset and Cornwall areas. Since installation the fully automated machinery has made vast improvements to on-site efficiency having improved the turnaround rate substantially.

The equipment was installed without disruption to production with on-site training also completed quickly and efficiently. Kevin Squibb, Managing Director at Mid Devon Glass considers production standards should be of utmost importance with quality guarantees provided as standard. He believes the range and standard of products available from The Glass Machinery Company are of excellent quality and extremely competitively priced. Kevin Squibb comments: “As our processing side is expanding considerably we needed to evaluate and consider our future needs. We felt it imperative to adapt production methods accordingly by further automating our facilities and believe this to be the only way forward. As our portfolio grows it is vital that manufacturing methods are restructured to ensure we meet our customers high demands. The company has received excellent service from The Glass Machinery Company team who have provided the right products to meet our needs at the right price.” Phil Birchall, Managing Director at The Glass Machinery Company comments, “It is reassuring to know that the products in our range are helping to further raise both production standards as well as corporate presence throughout the South West for Mid Devon Glass.”
