Last week, readers were most interested in news from Vitro regarding a restart of one of the lines at its Carlisle plant (Line 1 at Vitro Architectural Glass Carlisle Plant Restarts Production): “Vitro Architectural Glass recently announced that Line 1 at its Carlisle, Pa., plant has restarted production. The line experienced a glass leak on August 17, 2017, resulting in a complete cold repair of the line.
“‘The entire Carlisle team is thankful for the support provided by Vitro management, our employees, suppliers and industry partners following the incident last August,’ said Tom Abbas, Carlisle plant manager. ‘I’m very proud of how everyone at Carlisle rose to the occasion to maintain the integrity of the plant and expedite the cold repair. It’s great to have the plant at full capacity again.’
“The return of Line 1 marks the restoration of 640 short tons of production per day for Vitro. Line 1 will initially focus on running the low-iron Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass by Vitro, while Line 2 will continue production of clear glass.”
