In an industry largely focused on products that require long production runs, we offer the glass container market a superior alternative based on our three principles: Flexibility, Efficiency and Sustainability.
The plant has been designed and optimized from the ground up to achieve a high degree of flexibility without sacrificing efficiency.
Our plant design, based on the “European model” of highly flexible plants, will allow us to produce both small and large runs at competitive prices.
Arglass is investing in best-in-class, state-of-the-art machinery and equipment, including innovative quality assurance systems which allow for greater automation, quality control and process management.
We designed the plant so that downtimes due to change of molds or colors are minimized. Our plant will:
Be capable of efficiently producing from two to twelve sections in double and triple gob configurations.
Offer a wide range of glass colors thanks to its feeder coloring capabilities eliminating the need for color campaigns.
In addition, we will have full in-house decoration capabilities to improve efficiency, reduce handling and logistics costs, thus optimizing time to market.
Arglass will operate a state of the art oxy-fuel furnace with best-in class environmental controls for a reduced environmental footprint. Our plant has been designed to achieve air emission levels that are significantly lower than the most stringent requirements set by the EPA.
Closed loop water systems eliminate almost 99% of water consumption, which prevents process water going into the waste stream, in compliance with Arglass’ sustainability principles.
Arglass is continuously working to increase the use of cullet, which is an integral part of our sustainability model.
