Al-Manna purchases two Glaston FC500 tempering furnaces


Traditions in the Saudi Arabian glass processing industry run deep at Al-Manna, a glass processing company started by Mr. Manna Al-Amri over 60 years ago. When his son, Ibrahim Manna Al-Amri took over at the helm of the company eight years ago, he continued to guide the company’s great history in the glass field. The aim of Al-Manna’s recently placed order for two Glaston FC500 tempering furnaces is to keep the company lead in the market when it comes to the long tradition in excellence and quality.

Al-Manna has high hopes for the two Glaston FC500 lines, which will be installed in Jeddah and Riyadh in spring and summer 2014. A key driver is to increase capacity to meet demand.

“We’re looking at these two tempering furnaces to be our workhorses.”

“We meet Glaston representatives on a regular basis – at Glasstec and Vitrum. And our own local representatives visit us several times a year. For us, Glaston is like a brother, since we’ve had such a long history together. We tell them that they can consider us to be one of the Glaston companies – a part of the Glaston family,”
– Ibrahim Manna Al-Amri
