For more than 20 years Edgetech I.G. has been a pioneer in warm edge spacer technology, supplying Super Spacer® to some of the most energy-efficient and sustainable insulating glass systems in the world. The company announced that on March 31, 2011, the two billionth foot of Super Spacer was produced at its newly opened manufacturing facility in Heinsberg, Germany.
“Just five years ago we celebrated production of our one-billionth foot of Super Spacer,” said Mike Hovan, President, Edgetech I.G. “Today, we’ve doubled that number. When we did the calculations we were surprised to see that this milestone was so close and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share this moment with our employees and customers. After all, it is their loyalty and dedication that have led us to this exciting occasion.”
Edgetech commemorated this milestone with celebrations at its Cambridge, Ohio, headquarters, its UK manufacturing facility and its newest facility in Heinsberg, Germany, where the two-billionth foot came off of the company’s newest production line.
“It is only fitting that the two-billionth foot was produced off our newest production line in Germany, which just began production this week,” said Andy Jones, Managing Director of Edgetech Europe. “There’s so much to celebrate as we continue to expand Super Spacer’s presence globally in more than 80 countries.”
