All tempering, laminating and insulating glass lines from Glaston

Vortex Glass started its first phase of operations in March 2021 with tempered glass for the Florida and Caribbean construction and architectural markets as they begin to rebound. By the end of this year, Vortex Glass will provide the full range of tempered, laminated and insulated glass products. “Our goal is to invest in the best equipment to provide our customers with the best quality,” says Mauricio Giraldo, Sales Manager of the new company.

Serving customers with the best quality hurricane impact-resistant glass and insulated glass is Vortex Glass’s primary mission. Located in Miami, Florida, the company will also supply residential and commercial construction with tempered glass for shower doors, office partitions and IG window units.

“We aim to provide customers with everything,” Giraldo says. “We will have so many different processes in the same place that we can supply general contractors or glazers with almost any glass they need. We want to be seen as their single source for heat treatment and IG manufacturing. We’ll be able to provide about 90% of all the glass required for architectural use.”

According to Giraldo, the company will be equipped with the very best lines – Glaston’s FC and RC lines for tempering glass, ProL for laminating and the latest VARIO insulating glass line with its TPS® spacer to complete the portfolio.  

As of this past March, Vortex has begun producing tempered glass. Currently, the company is setting up and testing its laminating lines. By the end of 2021, all three key processes will be ready.   

Although the Glaston tempering and lamination machines were purchased a few years ago, operations were delayed due to a change in warehouse location. Once the new warehouse was ready, Glaston’s team tested the lines to ensure all worked smoothly. 

“Our experience with Glaston so far has been good – the FC line is a good equipment concept,” Giraldo says. “The VARIO line will arrive in July and is scheduled to start production late this year.”

Vortex opens its doors at a good time. Demand is high as the markets recover from the pandemic. Construction is picking up rapidly, especially in the company’s main market of Florida, giving the company an excellent opportunity for business growth in its first year.
