Toughened glass specialist, TuffX, has announced the installation of a new glass furnace at its Knowsley premises.

The new Glaston FC500 furnace, which replaces an older model, was purchased as part of an ongoing £3 million staggered investment plan announced to the trade at the start of this year. This plan also includes a 30,000ft2 extension to TuffX’s production space, which is due to be completed in the autumn.

“The recent furnace upgrade is already providing multiple benefits for our production process,” said Paul Higgins, TuffX’s commercial director, “The new Glaston model we have installed is much faster but also more energy efficient than its predecessor, resulting in greater throughput and overall efficiency within our factory.

“This is the third Glaston furnace to be installed at our premises within the last six years, and a testament to TuffX’s drive for continual improvement, ensuring our customers can always depend on high quality products and reliable service.”
