FORGLASS acquires EKOPOL
In a transaction that was formalized at the end of 2018, FORGLASS, a supplier of comprehensive glass production solutions for glass makers world-wide, formally acquired Ekopol, a company that specializes in design and fabrication of various equipment for the glass industry and erecting steel constructions for both furnaces and batch houses. The two companies have been close business partners ever since FORGLASS was founded, so this is more a fusion of like souls, but for clients, the acquisition of large and modern production company means even greater stability of FORGLASS as a reliable business partner for them.
In a recent interview, Piotr Knast, the co-founder and CEO of FORGLASS said that as the clients’ demands inevitably increase, FORGLASS continually seeks new ways to be able to solve their complex problems. “It’s not just furnaces or just batch houses or hot repairs. We have the ability, the engineering know-how and the logistical base to support our clients’ glass production from engineering and design through start-up to getting the perfect drop every time.”
