Cambridge, Ohio – June 29, 2011 – Edgetech I.G. announced that Millet Industria de Vidrio in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, recently completed installation of the first automated Super Spacer® line in Latin America.

Millet runs both Super Spacer T-Spacer™ and Super Spacer Standard on the new line. Edgetech’s sales team worked closely with Millet through spacer choices and product development.
