USGNN Original StoryRochester Insulated Glass Completes Factory Expansion

Rochester Insulated Glass will begin shipping product from its expanded facility in Rochester, N.Y., this February.

Tyler Wolk of Rochester Insulated Glass in Rochester, says the company has added several hundred thousand square feet of factory space over the last year, and has brought in a great deal of new, automated equipment.

"We bought a new furnace that is 96 by 284 inches, two stages-the biggest in North America," Wolks says. In addition to the full convection oven, Wolk says the company has added several new insulating glass lines as well as automatic sorting and seaming.

"A pretty unique factory for a company our size," Wolk adds.

In addition, the company has joined PPG's certified fabricator program.

According to Wolk, the expansion is the first step for the company's goal of pursuing larger projects. "We're planning going after some larger work around the country," he says.
