At the Intersolar trade show in Munich, Mr. Kharuka (Vice Chairman Borosil), Mr. Ramaswami (Wholetime Director Borosil) and Christian Krenn (Sales Director LiSEC) signed a contract for a second tempering plant. Borosil has already been operating an AEROFLAT furnace from LiSEC since 2017. The fast development of the market and the increasing demand for tempered glass encouraged Borosil to make this investment.
The tempering furnace Borosil commissioned is an AEROFLAT 12/714FT2 – this plant is designed for tempering 2mm thin glass. The specialty about this acquisition is that LiSEC drives a development project forward together with the customer. The project’s aim is to increase the output of glass elements per hour. The new plant should be put in operation at Borosil in March 2019. Christian Krenn about the contract conclusion: “Borosil has once again opted for LiSEC. On the one hand they ensure that processes are the same and they don’t have to gain knowledge to operate a new plant. On the other hand, they rely on a supplier and partner who will accompany them long-term and hence confirm that they are satisfied with the so far delivered products and services.”
