Glaston Breaks Exhibition Sales Record with New Products

Glaston Technologies, part of Kyro Corporation, has closed a total of 27.8 million euros worth of new machine deals. The orders were received in the international Glasstec 2006 exhibition in Düsseldorf on 24-28 October. Glasstec is the largest glass industry event, held every two years.

The exhibition sales total, including both pre-processing and safety glass technology, is Glaston's all-time-high.

"Orders were also received for the newest top technology that was launched by Glaston at the exhibition. I am delighted to see that the products, strengthening the One-Stop-Partner concept, were so enthusiastically welcomed. This is a sign of successful product development," says Kyro president and chief executive officer (CEO) Pentti Yliheljo.

Tamglass introduced an automatic process control based flat tempering machine series, completely new in the industry. Bavelloni launched a series of new kinds of modular cutting tables, a compact, large capacity CNC centre called NRGTM and the Powerseam seamer, offering top speed.

Orders were received from all main market areas and especially from the EMA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) area and North America. They are strongly concentrated on Glaston's strategic focus area, glass processing machinery for the architectural industry. Some of the orders received now will be delivered during 2006, but a majority of all of these deliveries will be recognised in 2007.
