In 2012 Heye met with L. Lighting Glass, a Thai glass manufacturer that is branching into container glass, to discuss working together, and in January of this year Heye installed two 12 section triple-gob IS-machines for an amber furnace.
In May, another 12 section triple-gob machine was added in flint, all in NNPB.
"We did not have any container glass experience", says Khun Yanattha and Khun Lerdchai from Lighting Glass.
The success of the project has been put down to the decision of Lighting Glass to book the full training and assistance package from Heye.
From top-management to warehouse-staff, everybody was trained by Heye Glass people, aided by excellent cooperation from Lighting Glass.
