Mid-American Glass moves into tempering with Glaston FC500


Located in Davenport, Iowa, USA, along the Mississippi River, Mid-American Glass (MAG) decided to invest in its first Glaston FC500 flat glass tempering furnace to offer its customers added value, higher quality and superior service.

“We’ve known that we wanted to move into tempered glass for years,”  Michelle Magyar, President of Mid-American Glass, says with determination. “It was just a matter of when.”

The company was waiting for the perfect storm, which finally occurred when the cost of top-technology machinery started to come down and the demand curve from existing customers in the residential and commercial market started to climb. Additionally, there was a clear need to provide true service to customers.

“Everyone knows the quality of Glaston, and the FC500 has an amazing top-of-the line quality. There was no other choice. FC500 echoes everything we want to do for our customers. We saw the first FC500 in Quebec City in Canada. The plant director was like a little kid at Christmas. When we asked, ‘Is this as good as it looks it is?’ He replied, ‘Yes it is – and more! It runs perfect glass.”

“Now with our own machine up and running, we have seen for ourselves that the furnace can produce the best glass around. Even when unpacking the six containers shipped from Finland, our guys said we had a Cadillac because all the elements were so sturdy and well crafted.”
– Michelle Magyar, President of Mid-American Glass, U.S.
