Glaston RC200 brings service closer to customers


“In the past, we tempered our glass some 40-minutes’ drive away. Since there were always delays, we decided to purchase a Glaston RC200 furnace and expand our offering to bring a faster, better service – closer to our customers,” Mariusz Lojowski, President of Quartz Glass & Mirror (QGM), states. “After careful consideration, we decided we were ready to add tempering to our in-house capabilities. We really appreciated the great installation and startup work that Glaston provided for us.”

With a great passion for engineering and working with machinery, Mariusz Lojowski graduated with a degree in engineering from the Tadeusz Kosciusko University of Technology in Poland and started QGM in his garage in the US 15 years ago. From there, he moved into a small warehouse, and then finally into a much bigger one five years ago, in Schiller Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, where he currently runs his business.

“It was a hectic transition. Yet, once we had the furnace up and running, everything went very smoothly. When the tempered glass started coming off the line, all we could say was – ‘Wow!’ No complaints.”
– Mariusz Lojowski, President of Quartz Glass & Mirror (QGM)
