After already good collaboration, AGC Glass Europe and Schüco have now agreed to enter into a strategic development cooperation to pool know-how and technical expertise, exploit synergies in research and so actively promote the development of forward-looking solutions with vacuum insulating glass and aluminium systems.
Requirements for high sustainability and future viability of buildings are increasing. Smart and innovative technologies and materials are becoming more and more important. This includes, among other things, the use of vacuum insulating glass (VIG) inside window or façade systems.
Dr Karl Stefan Dewald, Head of the Façades business unit at Schüco, commented on the strategic partnership, “With AGC Glass Europe, we have found the perfect partner to help us meet the future requirements of the market and customers”
Serge Martin, CEO FINEO® Glass, also said, “We are very honoured by this partnership, as Schüco represents high-end premium systems and has a leadership position on the market. To embrace FINEO as an innovative product is an opportunity for both of us. We are convinced we will offer outstanding solutions to the market, which will combine high performances, sustainability and design.”
With its FINEO vacuum insulating glazing, AGC Glass Europe embraces innovative technology. The ultra slim glazing (from 6 mm total thickness) achieves unmet thermal and acoustic performances, and better light transmission.
The Schüco Group is at the cutting edge of technology, always setting high quality standards and premium solutions. The obvious adequation of Schüco with FINEO® makes it a perfect partner for AGC Glass Europe. In addition to meeting the highest comfort and design requirements through slim constructions and low weight, Schüco façade and window systems with FINEO® vacuum insulating glazing above all meet demands in terms of sustainability and energy saving – through optimum thermal insulation performance and the unrestricted recyclability of FINEO®.
