The business plan for 2015 alone calls for a growth from the current 120 employees to 500 by year-end.This is thanks to the accelerated market pickup throughout the region in the past few months. To be prepared, the company is now investing in Glaston's highly esteemed FC500™ tempering furnace to be able to deliver the highest possible glass quality to its customers.
"We finalized the contract for the FC500™in November 2014 and made the down payment before the turn of the year," Achyuth Krishnan, Managing Director of the company says. "The plan now is to take it into use in our new factory that will be ready by August 2015 when we know we'll need extra capacity for glass tempering, fabrication, double-glazing and coating. Glaston will continue to train our operators to get the greatest advantages from the machine through the end of 2015."
