Attractive High-class Products - Optimal Delivery Capacity

"The product is excellent, the service second to none. I can always call the A+W specialists –… experienced engineers who know what they are doing and who never let us down."

Daniel Curtis, Managing Director of Express Toughening

Express Toughening are glass processors in the South-East of England, with a clearly defined core business: Modern toughened functional glass with all CNC processing steps required are delivered 48 hours after the order was placed – top quality and top price guaranteed.

Those short delivery times require highly efficient business and production processes which can only be controlled by state-of-the-art software systems.

Orders are entered in A+W Business and are transferred to production; the production software A+W Production sorts the orders into batches. By means of the A+W barcoding system, the sheets are guided through production.

Thanks to the intelligent A+W shape optimization system A+W Shape Optimizer, Express Toughening saves ten stockplates a day. The company combines business with pleasure: They increase their margins while reducing the CO2 emission because material-conscious glass processing protects the environment.


  • Fast and correct input

  • Extremely short lead times on the shop floor
