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.”
