We spent much of our summer break rebuilding our main furnace. The Hot Shop crew took everything apart, used custom molds to re-cast the refractory material, and then put it all back together. These repairs will improve the quality and consistency of our glass and add several years to the life of our equipment. In addition, we installed air conditioning in the Warm Shop and will be making Cold Shop improvements as well.
We’d like to thank the Margaret E. Mooney Foundation and Pamela Amanna for making this work possible.
