Products or Machinery

Forglass manages to combine all industries necessary in the glassworks business, represented by the following divisions:

  • Steel Structures and Mechanical Equipment Division
  • Ceramic Structures and Hot Repairs Division
  • Automation and Control Division
  • Heat Technology Division
  • Architecture Division
  • Design Division

The Steel Structures and Mechanical Equipment Division designs, manufactures and installs steel structures for batch houses, furnaces and industrial buildings. The Division also specializes in weight measurement devices, transporting devices and silos. The flagship project of the Steel Division was the design and installation of 14 silos made of 275 tons of steel within 3 months from the ordering date. As it was impossible to transport already assembled units, the silos were put in the field at an ambient temperature of -15 Celsius degrees.

Hot works specialists and bricklayers who provide services for furnaces all over the world are one of the company’s strengths. The company is able to dispatch its specialists to various countries around the world within 24 hours. The flexible maintenance team allows the company to take care of the clients’ safety also during statutory holidays. Forglass, just as its clients, operates on a 24/7 basis during the whole year.

The employees of the Automation Division have the longest experience in the company. The programmers have effectively implemented sixty projects in the glass industry.

The Heat Technology Division is not far behind – it takes care of all utilities for the glassworks industry such as compressed air, vacuum, water, gas and air. The company hires an efficient team of welders welding in TIG mode.

The Forglass safety culture plays an important role in the working of the company.  The goal of the company organisation is to create an efficient team. Honest and responsibility-based relations with our workers create a group of committed and trusted individuals who can rely on each other. The first step to achieve this is to provide the workers with safe working conditions. We also endeavour to be recognized as passionate people creating a new quality instead of a “money-making company”, which often results in unsafe conditions.

The combination of different industries allows us to provide our clients with very convenient solutions. In the case of purchasing, for example, an IS forming machine, Forglass is able to provide a complete installation of the machine including the control system, supply and cooling as well as the support structure, hot glass discharges and shear platforms. Such a solution allows us to decrease the number of suppliers from 5 to 1.

Forglass is not only a company – it is a project of creating a new reality, a project led by a group of passionate people who continuously bring new, equally passionate people to the company.

Forglass is dynamically developing for its clients and thanks to them.
The symbiosis between the supplier and the client is the company’s priority. Forglass passionately works for the development of its clients, as it understands that this development is also its own.
