FINISHING

Gillinder Glass recognizes that after glass is molded and annealed, there is often a requirement for additional operations to perfect the customers’ products. Some glass manufacturers outsource these functions. However, Gillinder Glass has chosen to create its own, fully equipped, in-house, Finishing Department which allows us to carefully control quality at all stages of production and reduces transportation costs.

 

Simply said, our customers benefit from better quality and lower prices. Some of the feature equipment and functions of the department include:

  • Finishing Ovens to fine tune color, harden coatings, remove temper or re-anneal products
