We strive to make quality systemic.
From production to shipping, we make sure you only get the best.
Our practical packing system preserves glass quality. State-of-the-art glass packing is done on the automatic or manual spur lines, depending on size. The need for clean production has resulted in a system that minimizes contact with the glass surfaces during the packing phase. This capping system uses 90˚ rotators, barrel turnovers, robots and stackers to ensure proper glass orientation for downstream operations.
Our computerized inventory program provides accurate supply intelligence down to the very lite. The glass warehouse accommodates storage of up to 25,000 tons of glass for our customers. To ensure that we have the proper on-hand inventory, we have a tracking and stock locator system that connects this inventory with current and projected customer demands.
Our patented rack system minimizes handling. In order to reduce the times a pack of glass is handled, we introduced a system called a collapsible A-frame. It ships the glass from our floor via standard sized trailers directly to the customer’s line for processing. The racks need minimal separating or bracing materials, which saves time and factory space in the process and reduces waste.
