Tecnoglass invests new Glaston machinery to stay ahead


After a game-changing decision in early 2013 to change all six of its tempering furnaces over to Glaston FC500, Tecnoglass of Colombia has continued to set new records. Now Tecnoglass is setting additional records by being the world’s first owner of the latest GlastonAir. The company is also investing in Glaston ProBend. The two machines will give them another leap ahead of their competitors by being able to provide the ultimate glass products.

To keep ahead of the rest, Christian T. Daes, Owner and Managing Director of Tecnoglass, decided to be the first in the world to invest in the recently launched GlastonAir furnace. This allows the company to develop new, innovative glass solutions for both architectural and appliance businesses.

“There is a clear need for true high-end glass in the facade market. With the new GlastonAir, we will be able serve this market with a quality level that the market has never seen before. Additionally, the thin glass capability allows us to provide lighter structures, for example, for cooler doors and other appliances.”
– Christian T. Daes, CEO of Tecnoglass.

“Glaston ProBend will be used to provide sophisticated facades for customers in the US. Until now, only a few suppliers have been able to serve this market. With the new machine, we will now be able to deliver special high-quality bent glass.”
– Armando Del Vecchio, Technical Manager at Tecnoglass
