Tamglass: Three new furnaces to Pilkington from Tamglass

Pilkington has purchased 3 of the latest toughening furnaces from TAMGLASS of Finland, as part of their continuing programme of development, both for their Primary and Processed Products.

The furnaces are destined for installation in Pilkington's processing business lines in the UK and Australia.

These furnaces will be used to process both the current and developing range of advanced glazing products for the construction industry. These include Low-E coated products which are increasingly in demand due to the growing requirement for energy efficient construction materials.

The furnaces supplied by TAMGLASS are the latest generation of advanced toughening technology and will enable Pilkington to process and supply a wide range of products to the highest quality whilst maintaining flexibility and speed of production.

Further details of the exact locations and business focus of each of these new furnaces will be announced later in 2001.
