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.

The fully automated Bystronic line enables Millet to increase capacity to meet a growing demand for high-performance insulating glass in the commercial market.

“Architects are not only using more glass in projects, but they are creating more complex designs,” said Miguel Millet, Commercial Director, Millet Industria de Vidrio. “The new Bystronic line helps us simplify the manufacturing process while delivering efficient, high-quality IG to our customers.”

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.

“It was exciting to see the first automated line installed in Latin America,” said Roberto Becerril, Edgetech’s regional sales manager in Latin America. “The team at Millet is world-class, and we look forward to a long partnership with them.”

In business for more than 50 years, Millet specializes in IG, tempering, laminating, bent glass, print glass and shower doors, serving architects, developers, investors and hotel chains throughout Mexico.

The company has 450 employees with locations in Merida and Cancun.
