Installs Cutting System at Tulsa Plant
June 10, 2009
Zeledyne LLC is installing a new cutting system at its plant in
Tulsa, Okla. The company expects to complete the installation by
"This $4 million investment at our Tulsa Plant represents
a significant commitment to this plant and our manufacturing capability
in general," says Michael McCarney, Zeledyne CEO. "This
system will provide greater flexibility and responsiveness to our
customers' needs, while enhancing efficiency within the plant."
The cutting system, designed and installed by Hegla, can process
up to 40 million square feet per year.
"This installation gives us greater capability, just as we
are starting to see some stabilization in the architectural glass
market," added McCarney. "This positions Zeledyne well
for the anticipated recovery in this segment later this year."
Zeledyne recently also re-built its T-2 float glass line, on which
it resumed production in May.
Initially, the system will be used for architectural glass, according
to Zeledyne spokesperson Della Dipietro.
