United Plate Glass shares best kept secret United


“When you’re basically happy with the quench and your bed size, it becomes a no-brainer to change the furnace chambers with Glaston’s chamber replacements to get a completely new furnace. The best thing – you’re only paying about half the price of a new furnace and you get the latest tempering technology,” states Darin Vietmeier, Vice President of Operations at United Plate Glass of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His company purchased Glaston’s chamber replacement upgrade in early 2016 for a Glaston Uniglass UniCharge furnace that dated back to the turn of the millennium. “It’s the best kept secret out there!”

United Plate Glass has grown despite economic ups and downs thanks to its wise decisions to move with a high-quality glass offering for its customers. originally, the company started as an automotive glass distributor with no manufacturing capabilities at all. Later, it started with light manufacturing when it purchased polishing and beveling equipment, and from there, moved on to insulated glass.

“We got the furnace replacement chamber in spring 2016, and we  haven’t looked back. Now everything’s up-to-date and it will be much easier now to maintain the software and other controls that were becoming obsolete.”
