Edgetech Hits Two Billion Feet Mark

April 5, 2011

On March 31, the day before its acquisition by Quanex Building Products Corp., Edgetech I.G. Inc. produced its 2 billionth foot of Super Spacer at its newly-opened manufacturing facility in Heinsberg, Germany.

“Just five years ago we celebrated production of our one-billionth foot of Super Spacer,” says Mike Hovan, Edgetech president. “Today, we’ve doubled that number. When we did the calculations we were surprised to see that this milestone was so close and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share this moment with our employees and customers. After all, it is their loyalty and dedication that have led us to this exciting occasion.”

Edgetech commemorated the milestone with celebrations at its Cambridge, Ohio, headquarters and its UK manufacturing facility, as well as at the German plant. 

“It is only fitting that the two-billionth foot was produced off our newest production line in Germany, which just began production this week,” notes Andy Jones, Edgetech Europe managing director. “There’s so much to celebrate as we continue to expand Super Spacer’s presence globally.”
