UK-based electric melting specialist Electroglass has reported a ten-year record in its 2015 results.

“Despite uncertainty and slow-down in a number of world markets, we have had an excellent year”, said Managing Director Richard Stormont.

“All-electric furnace and forehearths projects for fluoride opal tableware glass, in south Asia in particular, have been significant contributors to this, along with borosilicate electric forehearths work in the USA; gas-to-electric soda-lime forehearth conversions in South Korea; electric boosting projects in Indonesia and elsewhere; and continuing development and sales of our Precision Control Bubbling Systems.

“Also holding up well are sales of hardware, notably the Molycool and Vertical Splashguard ranges of electrode holders and our dry-type forehearth electrodes,” he added.

“The rest of 2016 sees the commissioning of several recently supplied systems and work is expected to start on a number of significant new projects for the company.”

Electroglass will be exhibiting at the upcoming Glassman Middle East show in Abu Dhabi, on the 10th and 11th May.
