Al-Hadi Glass Industries lifts its level of professionalism
Glaston FC500 reaches high performance
“Once we saw Glaston’s FC500 at Glasstec in Dusseldorf a few years ago, we knew that this was the tempering furnace for us. High-performance glass is required in our region, since temperatures soar to +50°C. And high-performance glass needs high-performance machinery. This is what Glaston’s FC500 tempering furnace is providing for us, so that we can serve our market using the most professional equipment,” says Abdullah Al-Qabandi, General Manager of G.M Al-Hadi Glass Industries in Kuwait City, Subhan Industrial Area, Kuwait.
Starting solely as an aluminum production company in 1973, Al-Hadi has slowly evolved to match the market needs over time. The company aims for excellence in providing the best in glass quality products and services with dedicated technical support for local, regional and international markets in a timely and professional manner.
The FC500 has been running smoothly since February 2017. According to Abdullah: “Everything has been running fine, and we’re getting very good quality glass output.” Customers, too, have especially been able to see the difference in glass quality, noting the considerable quality improvement.
In Kuwait and the region in particular, certification testing is key to show that the glass fulfills all the standards that are needed to withstand the very hot temperatures. Abdullah is pleased with the possibility to produce reports through the machinery’s iControL automation system to verify the certification tests. “No other competitor is doing this – and yet, this is something consultants and customers highly appreciate,” he says. “It enables us to prove that we are producing better glass that complies with the most stringent regulations.”
“In our region, you need to know how to handle glass gently and professionally. And Glaston knows exactly how to do that.”

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”Read more

“Although our goal is to be one of the leading smart and safety glass manufacturers in Finland, we didn’t have the time needed to install a completely new furnace,” says Raiko Mäkeläinen, Technical Manager at Lasiliiri. “Instead, we went with a significant Glaston’s FC-zone upgrade, which enabled us to leapfrog to the very latest heating technology in a quick, cost-effective and sustainable manner.”Read more
