Zeledyne Installs Cutting System at Tulsa Plant
June 10, 2009
Zeledyne LLC has purchased a new Hegla glass cutting system for
its Tulsa plant that, according to the announcement, can process
up to 40 million square feet per year. Installation is underway
and completion is expected by early August.
"This $4 million investment at our Tulsa plant represents
a significant commitment to this plant and our manufacturing capability
in general," said Michael McCarney, Zeledyne chief executive
officer. "This system will provide greater flexibility and
responsiveness to our customers' needs, while enhancing efficiency
within the plant."
McCarney added, "This installation gives us greater capability,
just as we are starting to see some stabilization in the architectural
glass market. This positions Zeledyne well for the anticipated recovery
in this segment later this year."
This investment is the second major investment at Zeledyne's Tulsa
plant in less than two years. The plant's T-2 glass float line resumed
production last May after an extensive $30 million rebuild.
