Last week Scheuten Projects opened in its factory in Venlo a new, own production line for the manufacture of project insulation glass. From now on all high-quality glass processing is combined under one roof and in one hand: laminating, hardening, silkscreen printing and other design options, BIPV, and from now on also the production of insulation glass for (inter)national projects.
Turnkey projects in one hand
Scheuten Projects division director Heiko Probst explains: "Previously, we produced the project insulation glass in Venlo in cooperation with our sister division. Because of the booming construction and glass market, however, that capacity is becoming increasingly tight. With our own new insulation glass production line, we are now clearly more flexible and we can optimise the production processes in the two plants. A professional 'all-in turnkey' project company in Venlo will combine advice, sales and project management for our project customers in one hand, under sales supervision of Joep Kwantes. Our customers benefit hereof worldwide."
It also increases the flexibility for Scheuten as a company for the production of insulation glass. "If necessary, we can still use the capacity of our sister divisions, and vice versa. Given the current growth in construction in the Netherlands and surrounding countries, this is also a valuable extension for Scheuten as a whole.", Heiko Probst concludes. Scheuten Projects supplies both double and triple insulation glass for projects up to the jumbo format of 6mx3.21m, 68mm thickness and 1,750kg weight each.
Scheuten Projects has offices and production facilities in Venlo (Scheuten), Bretten (BGT Bischoff Glastechnik AG) and Waghäusel (SITEC Produktions GmbH) and additionally has amongst others six tempered glass furnaces, five silkscreen-printing lines, five laminated glass production lines and six autoclaves.
