Tempco Glass Fabrication Marks Fifth Year in Operation

Tempco Glass Fabrication, a New York-area glass processing firm, is marking its fifth year of operation since opening early in 2013.

In the past three years, Tempco has added production capacity beyond its original glass tempering operation, doubling its factory space to 50,000 square feet, and acquired new glass processing equipment including CNC automated cutting and fabrication equipment and two production lines for insulating glass units. The new equipment allowed the company to add many fabrication services. Tempco also acquired trucks to expand regional delivery service to job-sites and customer locations.

The company says its investment has resulted in sales growth of nearly 180 percent in the past three years. In that same time, the company has more than doubled the number of employees to more than 50.

“Tempco is proud of its positive impact on the local economy with job creation,” said Johnson Chen, general manager. “Manufacturing in New York City can be hard, but we are proving that it’s viable.”
