Glaston Corporation has closed a significant deal with U.S based Trulite Glass & Aluminium Solutions for three FC500 tempering furnaces.
This includes the iControL Quantum Automation and Reporting system, and Glaston Care service agreements.
The machines are to be delivered during the first and second quarters in 2016.
In addition to the FC500 furnace deal, the parties agreed on major upgrades for two Glassrobots’ machines.
Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions is one of North America’s largest architectural glass and aluminum fabricators.
The company manufactures and distributes architectural aluminum, insulated units, mirrors, tempered, laminated, and decorative glass from their 28 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
‘It was a true pleasure to meet with Trulite’s management at Glass Build America in Atlanta, and hear the obvious excitement they have for the future growth of their operations, and how Glaston plays a significant role in this”, said Arto Metsänen, Glaston Corporation’s President & CEO.
Paul Mahedy, Executive Vice President, Trulite Glass and Aluminum Solutions, said: “Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions is very excited to build on our partnership with a true leader in convection furnace technology.
“Glaston continues to raise the bar, with industry leading solutions that produce superior optical surface quality in high performance glass products.
“Along with these investments, Trulite is also well underway with four other Glaston furnace projects and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership.”
Launched in 2011, the Glaston FC500 tempering line has gained a solid position on the market.
