Berkowitz Fires Up New Oven
J.E. Berkowitz L.P. (JEB), a glass fabricator located in Westville, N.J., recently
installed the Uniglass UGCPlus "UniCharge" flat-glass tempering line
with forced convection heating, the first of its type in the United States. The
state-of-the-art system has a loading capacity of 84- by 192-inches and was purchased
by JEB to meet growing demand for high-end tempered glass. The Uniglass line will
focus on coated glass products.
The new furnace is the third oven JEB has purchased. Uniglass representatives,
with the help of JEB's director of operations James Carroll and his staff, conducted
the installation process. Uniglass manufactures advanced tempering technology
from its headquarters in Tampere, Finland.
"After weeks of installation, the first lite came out perfect. We couldn¹t
believe it," said Arthur Berkowitz, president of J.E. Berkowitz L.P. "The
project management support we received from Uniglass was superb."
