USGlass Magazine Looks at Machinery Buying
Plans and Trends
With the amount of new construction expected to increase
next year, that will likely mean a need for more glass on these projects.
In what could be described as an effort to prepare for increased demand,
many glass companies are making plans to enhance their capabilities. How
so? Within the next 12 months more than half of the industry’s companies
expect to purchase new equipment; more than a third have firm plans to
purchase, but have yet to say just when they plan to do so. These are
just some of the findings of a recent research project conducted by USGlass
magazine to learn more about plans companies have regarding machinery
purchases and buying trends.
