Edgetech Europe Adds New Production Line

HOUSTON, April XX, 2016 (NYSE: NX) – Edgetech Europe GmbH announced that beginning in spring 2016, its Heinsberg, Germany, facility will begin producing Super Spacer® TriSealTM Premium Plus. A high-quality non-metal warm-edge spacer system with integrally incorporated desiccant for both residential and light commercial insulating glass units, Super Spacer TriSeal Premium Plus is a Passive House-certified product that offers architects energy efficiency, durability and environmental comfort to their projects.
 
“The addition of this line in our Heinsberg facility will help to support the European market in similar ways that Super Spacer production in the United States has supported the U.S. commercial market,” said Johannes von Wenserski, Edgetech Germany. “We now have the capabilities to supply our European customers even faster, helping them make their businesses better.”
 
A warm-edge market leader for more than 35 years, Edgetech is already working with building professionals on several high-profile projects in Europe to help them create aesthetically pleasing facades while maintaining high performance and efficiencies.
 
In May 2016, the Heinsberg facility will celebrate five years of serving the European market.
