Glaston Corporation             Press release                                           28 January 2021

Glaston Group has closed a deal for a FC Series™ tempering line with one of the largest suppliers of turn key sunrooms in North America. The order is registered in the company’s fourth quarter 2020 orderbook. The line will be delivered and installed during the third quarter of 2021.

Due to extensive market demand for the company’s products, a push for early retirements and the influx of home improvements, the company, especially known as the supplier of high quality patios and sunrooms, is expecting to double their sales in 2021. In addition to growing demand, a trend for sunrooms with Low E glass is also visible in the market.

In order to meet these requirements as well as maintain and build on best in class quality standards, Glaston’s long-term customer decided to invest in a FC Series™ tempering line equipped with the Vortex Pro™ convection. The tempering line includes special customer-tailored features as well as the latest Glaston technology and will be one of the most advanced and automated high output furnaces in North America.

The FC Series™ is the choice for glass processors targeting top-quality at high production rates with the highest possible degree of heating control, intelligence, machine durability and safety”, says Kimmo Kuusela, SVP Americas.
