In June 2021, PRESS GLASS, a leading flat glass processor, and A+W Software, the leading software provider for the flat glass and window industries, started cooperating on a project to build a new, highly automated insulated glass production plant in Lithuania.
This project is the culmination of several years of technological dialogue between the companies. PRESS GLASS has made a strategic decision to successively automate its insulated glass plants. An analysis focused on the complexity and effectiveness of software solutions for the glass industry resulted in the formation of a partnership with A+W Software.
From a technical point of view, a systemic approach to dynamic optimization and automation of the cutting area, management of automatic sorters, packaging optimization, and capacity planning all played a key role in this decision.
There was a kick-off meeting in Szczecin in the first half of July; project teams from both companies participated, thus initiating the commencement of this joint project.
Hubert Woźniak, Country Manager A+W Software Poland commented: “Although A+W is a global software provider for the flat glass and carpentry industry, with the global nature of our business, we always try to be as local to the customer as possible. It is the development of local organizations that allows us to better understand the challenges our clients face and respond to these in the form of solutions and the functionality of our products.
