Xinglass has established its first branch office, Xinglass America, in the U.S. Xinglass is a China-based manufacturer of glass tempering furnaces, laminating machines, washing machines and other glass fabrication machines. It has been serving the U.S. since 2002.

“We have been selling machines to the U.S. for 16 years, and we are seeing that the demands for glass machinery are going up fast these years. Many glass fabricators are considering expanding their plants and acquiring more machines, so we have decided to set up our branch office here in the States,” says Xinglass owner Zhenghong Zhu.

“Technical support for glass machines and equipment is critical to glass fabrication companies. Before, it was kind of hard to provide support to customers in the U.S. due to distance between the two countries, and all communications had to be done under time delays. Now we can provide support and service to all U.S. customers directly without any obstacles, and that is one of the main reasons we set up an office here. I believe we have to be available here to support all our customers,” adds Zhenghong.

Based on the increasing sales of machines, Xinglass expects steady growth of the glass industry and market in the next year. The company plans to expand and build partnerships with more local glass companies.

“We are planning on expanding our sales force and are focused on providing glass machinery of high-quality and at a good price to meet and surpass customers’ expectations,” says Zhenghong. “…We take care of the whole machine distribution process and assure our customers of convenience and time-savings. Having a presence in the States, it’s a very good opportunity for us to showcase our products in national exhibitions such as GlassBuild America … and also regional exhibitions.”

Xinglass America is located in Fairfax, Va., and the company’s service area covers the whole country. The company’s main business is distribution of glass machinery and its technical support.
