Salem Distributing and HHH Tempering Resources have announced that they have launched a new joint business venture, Glass Tempering Resources.
The new entity will serve the glass industry with new and refurbished tempering lines and other refurbished equipment, according to the companies. Glass Tempering Resources will also offer master service agreements for all tempering brands.
“Currently, there are no firms in the glass machinery arena that have a broad sales team covering both the United States (U.S.) and Canada, and the technical expertise to service any tempering brand, says Salem Distributing president Mike Willard. “The formation of Glass Tempering Resources fulfills that void.”
HHH Tempering Resources president Mike Synon adds, “This venture truly provides much needed service as some of our industries best maintenance personnel retire and companies reduce the size of their current maintenance staff.”
Glass Tempering Resources offers a tempering line from North Glass Tempering. Salem will offer complete sales support, while HHH will provide U.S.-based services including installation, post-sales technical support, parts inventory and 24-hour service agreements.
The agreement was announced during the recent GlassBuild America.
