Saltash-based Westcountry Glass, part of the Cornwall Glass Group, has purchased its first piece of major processing machinery.
The state-of-the-art toughening furnace, which is being installed by Lambert GT Services Ltd, is the first of its kind for Westcountry Glass and the Cornwall Glass Group and will take it to new manufacturing capabilities as well as offering customers a wider range of products and processing.
Cornwall Glass Group director, Mark Norcliffe, said: “This new machine will complement our three current furnaces and open up so many new opportunities for Westcountry Glass and the branch network of Cornwall Glass.
“The Team at Westcountry Glass are very excited with the prospect of being able to produce toughened glass for both single and IGUs to the new maximum sizes now available on the new furnace and we look forward to being able to do business with new customers and help our existing customers with new products and capabilities. We look forward to a long partnership with Lambert GT Services Ltd.”
