Global Equipment Sales Remain Brisk with More Focus on Quality and Automation

Global machinery companies continue to sell new equipment around the world. Finnish machinery company Glaston is one supplier that has seen recent sales globally for a number of its equipment lines. Equipment has been installed in Ireland, Poland and the U.S.

In Ireland, glass fabricator Carey Glass recently purchased an Easy-Lifter handling device, marking 2,500 units of this Glaston line now sold.

“As we have total in-house control of the quality and delivery requirements for each customer’s project, we have to invest in reliable equipment and machines that meet our needs,” says Evelyn Carey of Carey Glass. “Handling such high volumes of glass means that we must keep production methods as simple as possible where necessary without losing any of the guarantees.”

Press Glass UAB, part of Press Glass Group, a fabricator based in Poland, has also invested in new Glaston equipment.

In addition to one tempering line, the order includes several insulating glass lines, and a grinding line, among other machines. The lines are set to be delivered during the first half of 2022.

“At Press Glass we focus on building a technology advantage in the glass processing industry,” says Tomasz John, CEO. “In order to guarantee the highest quality of our products we cooperate with the most reputable partners, such as Glaston. Our advanced processes become more and more automated, which allow us to constantly improve our efficiency and customer service.”

Companies outside of Europe are also investing in equipment. Glaston reported it received orders for two Vario TPS insulating glass lines in the United States. The orders, from Central Valley Glass & Screen and Sierra Glass Fabrication, are expected to be delivered during the third quarter of the year.
