Western Window Systems announced it will no longer manufacture insulating glass, a business the company has been involved with since it started in 1959. The company has partnered with All Weather Tempering to provide customers with insulating glass, allowing Western Window Systems to expand its production capacity, continue its aggressive lead times, and provide much-needed space on its manufacturing floor for the development of future product lines, the company reports.

“It was a tough decision to leave the business we originally started,” said Jason Funk, president of Western Window Systems. “And it wasn’t until we found a partner like All Weather that we started to take the idea seriously. They’ve got the technology to [insulate glass] cleaner and quicker.”

All Weather’s fully automatic system features warm edge thermoplastic spacer technology: an environmentally friendly spacer system that improves the energy efficiency and flexibility of insulating glass units, the supplier reports.

Funk says All Weather Tempering will begin handling the majority of insulating glass production beginning the week of April 14. Employees formerly involved in insulating glass manufacturing will be utilized in other areas of the business.
