Bojar invests in Glaston FC Series to prepare for changes in glass quality regulations
“Be it architects, façade engineers or homeowners, people expect high-quality glass products with shorter delivery times. Execution, precision, accuracy and aesthetics all affect customer satisfaction – and higher customer satisfaction leads to extended relationships and more business. We are proud that Bojar is one of only a few companies in the market that offers tempered glass without visible anisotropy,” says Krzysztof Harasimowicz, Bojar Sales Director.
Bojar is the premier name in service and quality for high-standard glass products in the northeast region of Poland. However, glass products were not always part of their story. In 1997, Bojar was founded in the city of Ełk as a PVC profiles and window accessories distributor. In 2003, the company tapped into a more sophisticated glass production business for high-quality, double-glazed products and built a new production facility with glass processing machines. A whole new era began for Bojar.
The company presently offers various types of glass and glass-related services for all possible applications. They are the leading manufacturer of double-glazed products throughout the region – and are still growing.
To better deal with the anisotropy phenomenon and be ready for potential industry changes, Bojar extended its machinery fleet in 2018. They also ordered a new glass-tempering furnace, a Glaston FC Series, and equipped it with an iLooK scanner, which measures the quality of all processed glass. Insight Reporting, the extensive online reporting system, was also implemented.
“The purpose of getting iLooK was to check glass quality and be able to control anisotropy. Thanks to the scanner, we were able to minimize the anisotropy phenomenon, offering glass with no visible anisotropy without the use of sunglasses. And when it comes to fireresistant glass (FRG), one of our special products, Bojar is among only six glass processors in Poland to supply this type of glass and the only processor in the region. What distinguishes us from other FRG manufacturers based on tempered glass is that we are the only one who delivers it without visible anisotropy.”

“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
