Finland-based Glaston announced it has closed a deal valued at more than $4.5 million (EUR 4 million) for heat treatment and pre-processing lines with Spanish company Tvitec–Técnicas de Vidro Transformado S.L. The machines are booked in Glaston’s 2015 second-quarter order book and will be delivered to the customer during the third and fourth quarter of 2015, according to a release from Glaston. The order is a follow-up to a deal made in 2013.
Tvitec, a façade glass supplier located in Cubillos del Sil, León, in northwest Spain, was founded in 2007 and has one of the largest glass processing facilities in Europe. The company first purchased a Glaston furnace in 2008.
The heat treatment lines, Glaston’s latest technology, are equipped with the advanced GlastonInsight production optimization system. The deal also includes a pre-processing line for double-edging. One of the heat treatment lines and the pre-processing line will be installed at the company’s new factory close to Oporto, Portugal.
