Glass International April 2018

In this month’s issue, Allied Glass discusses its new decoration unit in the UK, which is back in business after a fire.

It installed a new KBA Kammann K15 machine in order to producxe the most eye-catching decorated bottles.

We review the recent successful Glassman Latin America event that was held in Mexico recently and saw the region’s manufacturers come together to discuss the future of glassmaking.

Glass furnace emissions have come under scrutiny in recent years and face increased pressure to meet environmental rules in future years. We spoke to furnace suppliers FIC, Electroglass, Sorg, Teco, Fives and Horn, as well as FEVE glass association to ask what the sector is doing to meet the new legislation.

Dutch company Celsian is celebrating the success of its recent Glass Trend event. Its Managing Director Harmen Kielstra discusses the company and then changes made since he took over 18 months ago.
