"A+W and Hegla have worked together on many projects and have an excellent working relationship. Cooperation with the other machine partners also functions excellently. The service and response times of A+W are outstanding!!"
The business model is sophisticated but, thanks to a high delivery capacity and perfect logistics, it is very successful: Cura Glass delivers all required panes of glass anywhere within Europe within five days, be it single panes, boxes or container goods. The family company that is managed by managing directors Matthieu and Marijn van den Ingh imports glass from across the world and has more than 600,000 sqm of glass with approx. 600 types of glass permanently in stock.
One special aspect is the integrated VSG production plant that was installed in 2013: the 600 stored glass types combined with 30 different films means that any type of glass structure can be produced (theoretically 10 million combinations).
The fleet of 22 special trucks ensures perfect and reliable delivery logistics; although, whenever necessary, Cura-Glass is capable of shipping mixed shipments and mixed boxes abroad. Cura Glass has its own project department which has realised many complex glass projects in the past. Cura customers profit from the independence of this Dutch wholesaler that works with all high-quality suppliers.
When designing the fully automatic cutting process, the Cura Team 2015 compared several software providers before opting for the integrated online control system of the A+W Realtime-Optimizer that continuously controls the Hegla VSG cutting system including the VSG-Remaster.
"If you can't get it from Cura, you won't get it anywhere," is a saying in the Dutch flat glass industry. Without a doubt, this statement also applies for the Benelux states and for Germany: "We don't see those countries as being 'abroad'," says managing director Matthieu van den Ingh with a wink.
