PJB Glass Group chooses Glaston RC200 for modern coated glass


After 10 years of experience with the Glaston HTF furnace, Paul Buckley, Managing Director of the PJB Glass Group, decided to complement his flat glass production offering by investing in a Glaston RC200 furnace. This will enable the company to increase production of a broad range of tempered glass types for customers. Flat Glass Merchants, one of the three companies in the glass group, will take delivery of the new furnace in April 2015 and plans to have it up and running by early May.

The new Glaston RC200 will help PJB’s Flat Glass cope with the growing demand for coated glass. The two furnaces will be run together to complement each other. The older HTF will be used for 6 mm upwards, while the RC200 will process all 4 mm clear and coated glass.

“Glaston, and formerly Tamglass, has always been recognized as the Rolls Royce for toughening plants. When we invested in our first toughening furnace over10 years ago, we had no hesitation in buying the Glaston HTF. This furnace has provided us with years of reliable operation. We also always appreciate the service we have received from Glaston over the years. We have never experienced any major problems.”
– Paul Buckley, Managing Director of the PJB Glass Group
