Amber-Glass selects Glaston to support its century-long growth
RC350 strengthens tempering capabilities
From a Polish family tradition, where knowledge of glass was passed through generations, Amber-Glass has accepted new challenges and changed with time. “Today, we are extending the possibilities of our glass processing business,” says Marcin Karel, Member of the Board and Production Director of Amber-Glass. “We’re doing this by using only high-end machines from the best manufacturers, so we can deliver the best-quality products and service.”
Amber-Glass is located within 600 km of six European capitals – Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest and Warsaw. An excellent business location, but widespread urbanization has created more environmental concerns. Companies committed to energy efficiency, such as Amber-Glass, are front-runners in Chorzow.
Using eco-friendly methods, Amber-Glass has continued its business expansion. In 2016, the company decided to improve its glass processing by strengthening the company’s tempering capabilities while staying energy efficient. As part of this ambitious aim, Amber-Glass purchased a Glaston RC350 tempering furnace.
“Selecting Glaston as our supplier was not a difficult choice,” says Marcin. “The company combines three of our most crucial business components.”
“First, Glaston is known for top-class technology you can trust. Second, the quality of the glass processed by its machines is undisputable – well known in the market. And third, the company’s proven market intelligence helps us stay at the forefront of the evolving glass industry.”
“It didn’t take long to see that the new quality of glass, simplicity of operation and the availability of performance reports are the best parts of Glaston RC350. Definitely the biggest advantage is the quality we can now offer our customers, and they’ve noticed the difference too.”
