Express Toughening

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 all with CNC processing steps, required delivery 48 hours after the order was placed, and top quality/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. A+W Business is just such a state-of-the-art software system for Express Toughening. Orders are entered in A+W Business and transferred to production. A+W Production software sorts the orders into batches through the use of the A+W barcoding system. The barcodes guide each sheet through production.

Additionally, through the use of the A+W shape optimization system called A+W Shape Optimizer, Express Toughening saves ten stock plates per day, which means the company can increase their margins, while reducing the CO2 emission because material-conscious glass processing protects the environment. Thus, it is a win-win for the company and the environment equaling 'green production.'
