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 saw the move into laminating glass as an exciting opportunity to explore. It gives us an open door to many new areas, such as security, acoustic and decorative glass. After thoroughly reviewing six lines, we chose Glaston’s ProL lamination thanks to its convection heating and simplicity,” say Consolidated Glass Corporation’s Brad Bartley, General Manager, and Lindsey Merryman, Lamination Line Program Manager.Read more

“For nearly 25 years, our second-hand Glaston tempering line served customers with quality glass tempering. But after numerous upgrades and rebuilds, it was simply time to invest in a new tempering line. Glaston’s RC Series fit our needs. Now, we’re looking forward to operating it for the next 20+ years,” says Mats Pihlqvist, Site Manager at Industriglas AB in Jönköping, Sweden.Read more
