Through this new relationship, Personna’s glass product line and blades will be packaged Bohle by Personna.
Personna’s 3-facet blades, the crown jewel of the single edge blade market, are the industry standard for glass processing. The blades are offered in a variety of materials, thicknesses and configurations to suit all glass processing needs. The proprietary grind process creates the sharpest blade available and offers a super sharp and ultra-long life. Three-facet blades are available oiled or degreased, depending upon the application. The blades greatly reduce the risk of scratching and the superior edge quality reduces scrap rates and saves money.
The Bohle Group was established in Germany in 1923 and has become the largest supplier manufacturer of glass tools and equipment in world. Bohle America, Inc. was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Charlotte location, supplying glass fabrication tools, glass machinery and consumables to the glazing industry is the Bohle Group’s fourteenth location worldwide.
