Ten years ago Vitrerie Lepage, born in 1963 and one of the most important glassworks in Canadian Quebec, decided to equip themselves with a glass tempering furnace, a Mappi Fox, the starting point of a qualitative leap. Ten years later that furnace is still the beating heart around which all the production activity of Vitrerie Lepage moves.
Bernard Lepage, who has always been at the helm of Vitrerie Lepage, said, “This machine produce a really high quality tempered glass from 3.3mm to 19 mm without distortion. And I’m almost sure it is the only machine that can produce really small glasses without a tray to keep pieces. The energy consumption is ridiculously low and the power installation to connect it is also really low. Maintenance is minimal and easy to do, the reliability of the machine is exceptional.” Indeed Mappi says of its Fox series furnaces: small in size, big in results.
In all of this there is an element that can never be lacking: constantly monitored customer satisfaction.
On his most recent installation Bernard Lepage said, “Recently we increased the size of the building, we wanted one more tempering furnace, a bigger one for bigger parts. We choose Mappi again, for two principal reasons: 1) the power installation required, Mappi was alone to respect the capacity that we wanted to install; 2) the space required on the ground: Mappi designed and built the furnace to fit perfectly in the space we wanted to use. Perfectly! All the quality of the small one is also on the big one. The big one runs perfectly and we never got a shot down. If I have to buy a third one, I will buy a Mappi!”
The testimony of Bernard Lepage confirms once again that the Mappi tempering furnaces are the best solutions both for who decide to grow and for who, once grown, want to continue to remain great by offering quality without compromise and without forgetting to be careful about energy consumption and reliability.
