MirrorWorks from Ottawa, Canada, is a typical example of a company that has based its growth on Passion and Pride. Passion for glass and its qualities, Pride for results achieved in 30 years of work. As a result, Mirror Works has become the largest residential glass company in the Ottawa region.
We met Mr Nermin Berbic from MirrorWorks to talk about his company, and their most recent improvement: an all new tempering furnace, a Mappi Fox 1500x3000.
- What’s your approach to glass?
- We believe that everything should be built solid, durable and aesthetically pleasing, wheter it be railings, showers, doors or mirrors. Mirror Works believes that small detail matter!
- We know you’ve choose a new tempering furnace. Why did you choose to buy a Mappi fornace? Based on what characteristics?
- There is a few reasons: big one is that oven does not need long time to reheat after shut down. Second, it is the right size for us, third is quality (as we heard from existing Mappi costumers) and of course most important thing people of Mappi from Nancy to everybody else that we have been in contact with.
- A tempering furnace is the heart for a Company like yours. What do you expect from the arrival of the new Mappi furnace?
- Being more reliable, punctual and of course increasing our business. Our typical customers are Builders, contractors and individuals. Fox is a tempering furnace really flexible, able to guarantee unsurpassed quality, both in large and in small batches. Energy consumption is reduced to a minimum and, last but not least, a true user friendly interface, which automates many of the necessary settings and allows the operator to focus on the really relevant decisions.
- How do you see the future for the glass industry?
- I see the glass industry as very dynamic and focused on innovation. This new furnace is an example of this, with the ever deeper implementation of 4.0 technologies. Solutions "powered by Siemens" that make the machine and the management system communicate directly. The future is already here, even if the customers main focus is on the price and second thing is quality. We are ready to offer both!
