Expands Capabilities with New Equipment Installations
Glassfab Tempering Services of Tracy, Calif., recently completed
the installation of its second tempering furnace. Supplied by Cooltemp
(TCME), the new furnace can temper glass sizes of 108 x 190. According
to Brian Frea, Glassfab operations manager, the new installation
will allow the company to produce additional capacity and the ability
to temper oversized glass.
"The addition of a new furnace will give us the tempering
capacity that we need to assist our growing customer base,"
Along with a new glass-tempering furnace the company also installed
an oversized soft-coat low-E washer and a new spandrel line. The
new furnace is Glassfab's second Cooltemp furnace within its two
years of operation (CLICK

of factors were considered before making the purchase.
"The quality of glass we will get as well as the after-sales
support were important," Frea tells USGNN.com. "We
did consider other lines, but we've been fortunate with Cooltemp
as the company has been able to satisfy all those requirements for
us. We are very pleased with how the equipment installation and
Mike Goldfarb, sales and marketing manager for Glassfab, says the
addition will help the company continue to meet customer needs.
"With the addition of the new furnace and added processes,
this will allow us to continue providing quality and service to
the architectural community," says Goldfarb.
Frea adds that listening to the needs of their customers is really
what determines future growth plans.
"It's all based on market demands
as an independent,
we know that quality, service and meeting customers' demands are
what will drive growth," says Frea. "We want to serve
our customer base the best way we know how, and if it means installing
new equipment that's what we will do."
