The automated Edgetech Super Spacer line has gone through the milestone of 1,000,000 units at Lancashire based Padiham Glass, manufacturers of high performance insulating glass units. Starting with a manual Super Spacer line, the fully automated Forel line was installed as part of the £2million expansion in 2007.
Managing Director for Edgetech UK, a Quanex Company, Andy Jones congratulated the team at Padiham Glass: “As one of the first companies to offer Super Spacer, this is a great achievement.”
The significant occasion may have been missed if it wasn’t for an eagle-eyed analyst. During an audit he told Wes Clarkson, Padiham Glass’ Sales Director, the million was close. Wes said: “We were on the lookout to see what customer order would be on the Super Spacer line as we went through the one million mark. It’s really appropriate that it was one of our longest-standing customers Darwen Windows.”
To mark this special occasion, a magnum of Champagne was presented to Bill Ainsworth, Managing Director of Darwen Windows. Bill said: “We’ve always had a very good relationship with the team at Padiham Glass. We get high-quality products with competitive pricing and we have always found the service to be excellent. I’m sure the relationship between our businesses will continue well into the next million.”
“Reaching this milestone in our 35th anniversary year is great for Padiham,” adds Wes. “We manufacture to very high standards and hitting the million mark in warm edge glass units shows we can depend on Edgetech Super Spacer to perform consistently.”
