Glass is our language, all along the line

Profound knowledge and decades of experience deliver their full potential: Together, Grenzebach and CNUD EFCO GFT create added value for the international glass industry. Consolidated expertise in flat glass production means innovative technologies, which are optimized through digitalization and energy-efficient operation for the future.

 

 

Enthusiasm starts with emotions.

Glass lets us gaze way out onto the horizon or view the world and what it has in store under a microscope. The material is thousands of years old and reveals new facets of itself each and every day. It fascinates and empowers us to work tirelessly on technological innovations so that we can help you exploit its full potential. 

Experts from many disciplines push boundaries because glass is in their DNA. They also understand the bigger picture. Architects use glass to create eye-catching buildings. Manufacturers produce this glass in exceptional quality and repeatedly break new ground in the process. They are backed up by a whole team of developers, engineers and programmers whose day-to-day mission is to discover what further potential glass can unlock.

 

 

“Glass is one of the world’s oldest materials and has achieved a quantum leap thanks to float glass technology. We provide end-to-end support to float glass manufacturers and I’m always impressed each time I walk down a production line. And that really motivates us as a team to break the mold and make the technology even better for our customers.”

 

Egbert Wenninger, Senior Vice President Business Unit Glass

Anyone glancing through a wrought-iron window in a historic building, castle or church will immediately notice what a difference float glass technology has made. You can look right through the glass without any optical distortion. Grenzebach and CNUD EFCO GFT have been shaping the story of float glass technology from the outset. Our wealth of experience benefits our customers all around the world.

 

Grenzebach and CNUD EFCO GFT have been supplying production and processing machinery for industrial float glass from the very beginning. Since the 1990s, we’ve been technology pioneers in this sector. Today, way more than half the panels of glass fitted in buildings are based on Grenzebach technology and/or produced by CNUD EFCO GFT. Our experts are the people you can bounce ideas off and vice versa. They’ve been in the business for many years, know all equipment and technology involved and on-site collaboration builds trust.

 

 


Hot to cold

Grenzebach and CNUD EFCO GFT’s mission is to cover the journey glass takes from hot to cold.


Together, we offer a one-stop solution that covers the tin bath to the annealing lehr all the way to the cold end, the coating phase to conveying the finished product to the warehouse. Why not make use of this outstanding combination?

Going strong for more than 20 years: With top service into the glass production of tomorrow

At Cardinal FG's float glass plant in Mooresville, North Carolina, Grenzebach has upgraded the drive technology to the latest state of the art, ensuring that the plant will continue to perform well into the future.

Coating technology

Or the feel-good factor.

Letting the sun in lights up an office, home or architecture. Absorbing or reflecting the sunlight away keeps interiors at a pleasant temperature. Glass controls how bright rooms are, but does much more than that, it creates an atmosphere. This aspect should be very important to us, because, after all, we spend about 80 per cent of our time indoors nowadays.
