Taylor Made Group expanded its glass-manufacturing capacity by refurbishing and upgrading an additional flat-glass furnace at one of its European facilities — Taylor Made Glass & Systems in Ireland.

“This investment was needed to satisfy increased demand in the marine and off-highway glass business,” Taylor Made Glass & Systems director of business development Eric Wagner said in a statement.

The reconditioned flat-glass furnace has a range of capabilities, including the ability to produce finished, tempered, tong-free product economically in low to high volumes.

“By making this capital investment, our corporate headquarters has ensured that Taylor Made will continue to keep up with market demand and remain the market leader in marine glazing products,” Wagner said.
