AluNile praises its experience with first exported Glaston FC500
For the past five years, Nile Aluminium & Metals Company, or AluNile, has had very positive experiences with Glaston’s first FC500 tempering furnace sold outside Finland. The company prides itself on designing and delivering truly aesthetic, economical and high-performance glass and aluminum solutions. With Glaston FC500, AluNile has expanded its capacities to process all types of highly demanding glass products for the Egyptian market, enabling it to become the undisputed leader.
Today, approximately 60% of the glass that AluNile produces goes to the company’s own projects for curtain walls, store fronts and other construction projects. The remaining 40% of its processed glass goes to competitors.
“Glaston has very professional people – and they make sure to put the right person on the job for each step, for instance, the electrician, the mechanic, the trainer. We did not experience any problems whatsoever with the furnace’s operations or quality. And more importantly, the entire project took place in a timely manner. Our operators, too, saw a significant improvement over the furnaces we had purchased earlier from China. So, everyone has been happy!”

“We purchased the Glaston iControL and scanner upgrade to solve any concern with software or spare parts availability before they became an issue. Once installed, the upgrade helped us win a large glass façade project in Indonesia that required extremely high quality. Both we and Glaston can be proud of the high level of quality achieved,” says Matea Franjić, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Kristal in Vitez, Bosnia and Herzegovina.Read more
