Glaston and HEGLA, both leaders in their respective areas of business in the glass machinery industry for architectural and automotive glass applications have entered into an exclusive partnership covering the majority of the Asia-Pacific region.
The goal of the partnership is to strengthen the offering of both parties for the benefit of customers. With the complementary product offering, both companies can meet glass processors’ growing demand for automation and integration providing comprehensive solutions, faster response and services to the customers thanks to the broader network in the region.
Effective March 2024, HEGLA’s sales and distribution activities in the area will draw upon the resources and network of Glaston Group. The partnership covers the whole region except for Japan, South Korea and China.
In HEGLA, we have the ideal partner as their complimentary offering will provide a perfect addition to our product range. Glaston is now able to offer the full product range to those customers who want to combine our heat treatment and insulated glass production with highly automated shop floor logistic solutions thereby substantially increasing efficiency and productivity. We are excited to start this new co-operation – comments CSO Sasu Koivumäki at Glaston Corporation.
