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)

“We’re the new kids on the block with our latest offering of digital ceramic printing on glass, bringing affordability to one-off glass pieces that can be tempered into a long-lasting masterpiece. It was all by chance that we met Dip-Tech at Glasstec in Dusseldorf in 2016. After 18 months, we’ve brought our business idea to fruition,” says Charlie Hill, owner of Washington Art Glass in Tyne and Wear, UK. “The key to our success has been an investment in Glaston’s RC Series tempering furnace for top-quality, flat glass results.”Read more
