Moag Relocates and Expands to New 50,000 Square Foot Facility in Indiana

Indiana-based glass fabricator Moag is now fully operational in its new 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility located in Harrison County, Indiana.

The new facility is brightly lit for enhanced safety, offers increased capacity and features equipment that provides fast, precision glass fabrication, according to the company.

Machinery investments include a North-Glass Tempering Furnace from HHH Tempering Resources to provide interior and exterior tempered glass; an Intermac automated double edging machine and cutting table to automate glass processing; a Keraglass Lami 180/400 combi 4/2 for architectural glass lamination; and additional lifting equipment to increase plant efficiencies.

“We designed the new facility to expedite the glass fabrication process. From the time raw glass arrives at the loading dock until completed projects are carefully crated for delivery, we’re leveraging the building and machinery investments to push glass quality and speed to the next level,” says president and CEO Cameron Moag.

Kuraray recently presented a certificate to Glasshape for having successfully passed its qualification process for laminating SentryGlas. According to a statement from Glasshape, the process was a rigorous one that the company went through over the course of the last year.

“The significance of this is that Glasshape is the first and currently only laminator of SentryGlas in Australia and New Zealand to have achieved this, so we are extremely proud,” says Andrew Bissett, strategic business development, marketing and design manager for Glasshape.
