Quanex Building Products’ business development director for Asia, YK Park, recently spoke at the 2013 China Glass Industry Annual Conference and Technical Forum, held March 26-28.
Park’s presentation was titled “Super Spacer® for High Performance IGU Fabrication and High Productivity.”
“The conference exceeded our expectations in many ways with some of the top suppliers and fabricators from China in attendance,” says Ramsey Bader, director of international
sales and marketing for Quanex. “We uncovered many valuable business opportunities and opportunities for collaboration with fenestration industry leaders in China. We look forward to continuing the conversations that were started as we strengthen our relationships in the Chinese marketplace.”
According to Bader, hot topics at the conference included production automation, energy efficiency, a trend toward larger glass panels and the possibility of regional collaboration efforts and benchmarking for insulating glass standards.
“Park met with Mr. Chang, the chair of the China Architectural and Industrial Glass Association, to discuss the possibility of bringing the Chinese, Korean and Japanese glass associations together to discuss IGU standards,” Bader says. “This is an exciting prospect that we hope to help coordinate in the near future.”
