Taylor Made Systems said it received corporate approval to further expand its glass-manufacturing capabilities by making an investment in a high-throughput horizontal glass furnace.

“This is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that will ensure Taylor Made and all of our many OEM partners stay well in front of the competition,” Taylor Made Systems president Al Petit said in a statement.

The new horizontal furnace will have a wide range of capabilities, including the ability to bend small and large glass shapes to nearly any radius, with no specific tooling, while producing finished, tempered, tong-free product. The furnace will be capable of producing low to high volumes of glass economically.

“By giving us the go-ahead to make this capital investment, our corporate office has guaranteed that Taylor Made will continue to be the market leader in glazing products,” Petit said.
