Specialist toughened glass manufacturer TuffX Processed Glass already has a reputation for being one of the most customer-oriented companies in the window industry.

That reputation is set to be further enhanced with the installation of a new automated concertina racking system that will improve stock efficiency and extend storage space. Graham Price, TuffX’s Managing Director, said, “The new Hegla concertina racking system will have huge benefits for our business and our customers.It has been tailor made for our 55,000 square foot factory and its efficient use of space means it gives us more storage capacity than ever before, helping us to stock a wider and bigger range of products to supply our growing customer base.”

TuffX’s new Hegla concertina racking system will store both 3m x 2m and 6m x 3m glass packs. It also caters for glass from between 4mm and 19mm thick, so can handle all of TuffX’s impressive range of glass thicknesses. It has up to 110 different storage combinations and concertinas automatically to maximise storage space and improve efficiency and health and safety.

TuffX Processed Glass manufactures high performance toughened safety glass in a wide range of thicknesses and styles in its Merseyside factory. Its product range includes toughened laminated glass, conservatory glass, balustrading, stairs, glass canopies, curtain walling and screen printed glass.

Its customer base has been growing rapidly in both trade and commercial sectors in recent years thanks to the impressive product range and commitment to customer service, which includes a standard delivery turnaround time of just four to five working days, with a fast track service available on request.

The investment in the new Hegla automated concertina racking system looks set to help the company build on its reputation for quality and efficiency and help it to grow still further.
