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.
