Post Time:Mar 22,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:120

Gerhard Reichert, president, Glasslam N.G.I. Inc., Pompano Beach, Fla., has announced worldwide expansion plans for the company’s Air-Tight insulating glass foam spacer products, according to a March 22 release.

Glasslam will open Air-Tight UK Ltd. in Kent, U.K. This factory will service existing and new accounts in the growing European warm edge insulating glass market. The facility will open this summer as the first of three extruding lines are almost complete, and staff training is underway.

In the third quarter of 2010, the company will open Air-Tight Asia, Ltd. in Kowloon, Hong Kong. This new facility, in partnership with Glasslam Asia Ltd., will produce foam spacer products for use in the Chinese, Asian, and Far East markets.

Completing Glasslam’s 2010 expansion plans will be the fourth quarter addition of a new Air-Tight foam spacer plant in the Southeastern United States. The site search is underway in the Carolinas for the best location for the new facility. The company’s new Air-Tight Smart Edge (with a pre-applied hot melt butyl) will be a major focus of this new operation, complementing production of Air-Tight’s Generic Silicone and new thermoplastic foam spacers.
