C N Glass make the smart choice – to Smartfill
17th May 2011
Inagas has been working with C N Glass – the longstanding family run manufacturer of IGUs based in the Cotswolds – supplying a gas filling and testing machinery package to enhance their production.
With over 30 years in the business and enjoying growth throughout, Trevor Mouat, Managing Director of Chipping Norton Glass explains:”Gas filling is not a new process for us as we have been doing it for a few years now but, having seen the performance of new Smartfill range of machinery from Inagas, we decided to invest in new equipment. Previously we would experience bottlenecks at the gas filling stage in our production as our old machinery wasn’t capable of keeping up. The introduction of the Smartfill-1 has completely overcome that problem - it is much quicker and a lot more efficient. As part of the package we also invested in an IGA 10, solely for the gas filling of our warm edge Super Spacer Heritage units, as well as a portable Hot Melt Gun. Finally, we depend on the handheld testing equipment – the TestOxy - to ensure we satisfy the requirements of EN1279. It is easy to use, effective and reliable, which is what we depend on to maintain compliance.
“We have a large and established customer base which we have worked hard to build up over the last 30 years. We are a family run business that provides a quality service at the right price and we only partner with suppliers we can rely on. We took the decision to invest in new gas filling and testing equipment from Inagas as we knew they are experts in their field and can provide ongoing support and expertise should we require it.”
