“When you start up a glass processing facility from scratch, you need to know that you can be comfortable with your choice of equipment. We wanted to have technology that would give us the ability to process high-specification Low-E glass, reliable operation and local engineering support in case we need it,” says David Whitburn, Managing Director and Shareholder of Glass Team in Auckland, New Zealand. “So far, we feel that our investment in Glaston RC200 was absolutely worth it, as our investment in this particular tempering line helps us master those three factors really well.”

Glass Team Ltd was born in June 2014, and in May 2015, the company began its operations of being a full service provider of glass for windows and doors as well as frameless glass installations, including showers and glass balustrades. “Our main goal is to satisfy our customers’ demands,” David states with pride. “My role since I joined has been to put the company together for Glass Team. It’s been challenging just as much as it has been rewarding to steer the success of our young startup.”
