Bystronic glass installs two innovative B’VARIO TPS® IG lines at Northeast Building Products in Philadelphia
With over 650 employees, Northeast Building Products, based in Philadelphia PA, USA, manufactures high quality, energy efficient windows, doors and ancillary products for the residential window and door market. Alan Levin, President of NBP, has partnered with Bystronic glass since 2009 when they invested in the cutting edge Sashlite™ technology, SashLine, to support the company’s diversification and growth strategy.
After realizing substantial growth over the last 10 years, Northeast Building Products has recently invested in a new, 104,000 sq ft state of the art manufacturing facility. This $15 million dollar investment will allow Northeast Building Products to meet their near and long term growth strategies. The new facility will further expand their window manufacturing capabilities and IG production capability, all of which will be units produced with the TPS® spacer system on two Bystronic glass B’VARIO TPS® IG lines. The new investment will allow Northeast Building Products to be well positioned to support their customers production demands of up to 1.800 IG units per shift, while at the same time meeting the need to support the increasing demand for high performance windows now and beyond.
“We have been impressed with the Bystronic glass brand for many years now, having originally installed two SashLines into our facility. Based on the performances achieved by that equipment, and the necessity to grow the operations, it was only natural to explore and invest in machinery that would guarantee to take this business forward and ensure the success of our customers. The Bystronic glass team is always so helpful and I would give them top marks in terms of training, installation and overall customer support.”
