Vetroseal decides in favor of Glaston FC Series


“Since starting up my business 18 years ago, my focus has always been on providing excellent customer service and high-quality double-glazed sealed units. Delivering them the next day, if needed, has set us apart from our competitors,” says Eric Falisi, Managing Director of Vetroseal. “To raise our throughput and quality, we’ve just ordered Glaston’s FC Series flat tempering furnace as the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle.”

Vetroseal started in a small 2,000 square-foot factory and then moved into a facility that doubled the space. After only five years, the company relocated again, to a factory with 12,000 square feet, and purchased its first toughening furnace. Today, Vetroseal manufactures 6,000 sealed units per week and operates out of a 20,000 square-foot premises.

“It became evident after only two or three years that we’d outgrown the furnace,” Eric admits. “But the move was big for us. And we also invested a lot in other machinery, like cutting equipment, an automated IG line – we even bought the factory next door for additional space.”

“I have wanted a Glaston furnace for some time,” Eric acknowledges. “But I studied the market offering first to consider the various options of furnaces that are available for our needs.”

At the end of January 2018, Eric decided in favor of Glaston. He placed the order one week later.

“I felt this is the machine for Vetroseal in terms of quality. The FC Series offers exactly what we’re looking for in a toughening plant. And it will really alleviate our massive bottleneck in production. For me, it’s the icing on the cake!”
