The Erdman High  
Speed Dura line pro-  
duces insulating glass  
units (IGUs) vertically  
in a fashion that the  
company says nearly doubles the speed of traditional vertical lines. Vertical  
production eliminates the need to tip a unit up to four times in the production  
sequence. This saves time, eliminates injury potential, qualifies more operators  
for service and minimizes breakage.  
Total labor for the Dura High Speed line is 3-4 operators per 1,000 units per  
shift vs. 8-10 operators for 1,000 units on a traditional line.

The Multigenerational Workforce  
One in three people in the American

businesses across industries thinking about  
how to manage this changing dynamic.  
Employee communications, engagement  
techniques and more must account for  
Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials—  
be on the lookout for some tips on meeting  
this challenge at GlassBuild.  
Technology is evolving at a rapid clip.  
There are new possibilities for how

volumes—they come with the opportunity  
to reimagine what’s possible on your plant  
floor. Are you maximizing the value of your  
product line? Utilizing floor space properly?  
Leveraging software to make better  
business decisions?  
Simultaneously, we’re being challenged  
in new ways. Skilled labor is hard to  
come by, and a multigenerational  
workforce is bringing new considerations  
in how we recruit, maintain and  
communicate with the people who  
make these new innovations possible.  
Vinyl Takes a Stronger Hold  
Vinyl and composite materials are  
continuing to evolve in both the residential  
and commercial markets. Composite  
materials have homeowners considering  
the more cost-effective option with the  
same aesthetic benefits compared to  
traditional wood, and advancements in  
performance have seen vinyl profiles  
gain significant new traction in the light  
commercial and even commercial high-rise  
markets. As the benefits become clear, and  
proof of performance is established, don’t  
think this trend is slowing anytime soon.  
Quanex Building Products is helping its  
customers take advantage of these new  
industry trends with Plant Transformation—  
which you can read more about in this  
issue of Fenestration Focus and hear about  
directly from our experts at GlassBuild. We  
have the resources, technology, capabilities  
and expertise to unite a range of changing  
industry dynamics into an actionable,  
winning strategy for customers. And, we  
can’t wait to show you more.  
How will we move forward? Rest  
assured, it’s what will be on the minds  
of attendees at GlassBuild America  
2
017 in Atlanta. Here’s what to watch  
out for:  
Automation  
The automation of fenestration  
manufacturing processes is changing  
how we do business. It’s helping us  
maximize our labor and do more with  
less. As more invest in the technology—  
be it semi-automated or full, high-  
speed lines—maintaining a competitive  
edge becomes a priority. How to do  
this? You can anticipate some theories,  
answers and techniques to emerge at  
this year’s show.  
The Labor Shortage  
We know there’s a labor shortage—and it’s  
time to get proactive. Whether it’s partnering  
with local trade schools, developing  
apprenticeship programs or other forms  
of outreach, it’s the responsibility of our  
industry to foster the best and brightest
