A complete in-house lamination production line was added to National Glass Products’ expanded Denver-based facility.

National Glass Products (NGP) has completed a $500,000 expansion of its Denver-based production facility as part of a multi-phased strategy to meet market demand in the area driven by population growth.

“We have expanded our Denver-based production facility by 8,000 square feet to accommodate the addition of a laminated glass production line. This is an approximate 16-percent increase in production space and 25-percent increase in production capacity,” says Tony Eschmeyer, vice president of sales and business development at NGP. A lamination production line was added and NGP is now providing Maverik laminated products to customers and projects.

NGP’s target is to produce and deliver within a standard three-week lead time.

“Our customers, suppliers and people made this happen. From initial design, to equipment installation, product training and daily production, the investment not only serves our customers, but has a positive impact on the communities in which we operate. We’ve increased our workforce by 18 percent to satisfy market demand and lead time for the crafted products we provide,” says Eschmeyer.

Other phases of NGP’s strategy included adding ChrismaColor backpainted interior glass to its product line back in May 2017 and bringing Eschmeyer on board to lead its sales team.
