Guardian Industries and Infinite Edge Technologies LLC (IET) have signed a joint development agreement to commercialize IET's InfiSpace warm-edge spacer system. With the signing of this agreement, the companies will work collaboratively to introduce IET's newly developed spacer system into the global marketplace.
According to the announcement, at the 2010 Glasstec show in Düsseldorf, Germany, Guardian group vice president Scott Thomsen confirmed Guardian's purchase of the first automated application system designed to utilize IET's InfiSpace spacer system. The equipment is expected to be operational at one of Guardian's fabrication facilities in early 2011.
"With Guardian's global presence and keen focus on new technology, it is an excellent partner in helping IET introduce the InfiSpace, warm-edge spacer system to the global marketplace," stated Eric Rapp, IET's chairman and chief executive officer.
According to Guardian's Thomsen, "From our initial review of IET's technology, we identified their system as having tremendous potential in the marketplace and are excited to be working closely with IET to introduce the system."
