Regency Glass Ltd invests in Glaston FC500


As part of an ongoing factory investment to meet the future requirements of the glazing industry, Regency Glass Ltd of Leigh, England, located just 10 miles west of Manchester, chose the advanced Glaston FC500 furnace to double its capacity and significantly boost its glass quality. In addition to offering a much wider range of quality glass products, Regency aims to reduce costs thanks to the energy efficiency that the new furnace brings to its operations.

The Glaston FC500 investment is part of the 30-year-long history of Regency Glass, a well-known provider of double-glazed units for the replacement market in Northwest England and a major employer in the community with a staff of 90.

Regency’s previous furnace was a Glaston Tamglass HTF, which was installed in September 1997, giving the company nearly 17 years of good service. The furnace was later upgraded with Glaston’s ECG+ convection system in 2002 to enable Regency to produce the types of Low-E glass that were on the market at that time.

”Based on our experience with Tamglass, we knew what we were getting. There’s really nothing better. The FC500 furnace is Glaston’s latest incarnation – and the best on the market. It toughens faster and toughens a much wider range of products.”
– Steve Massy, Sales and Marketing Manager for Regency Glass Ltd.
