Since its introduction in 1992, 10 billion feet of Intercept® Spacer, developed by GED Integrated Solutions, has been installed in more than 500 million windows throughout North America and Europe. "This exceptional manufacturing achievement can be attributed to the many door and window manufacturers worldwide that insist on producing high-quality, durable, long-lasting systems," said Ron Auletta, president of GED Integrated Solutions.

"Our state-of-the-art, fully-integrated i-3 lean manufacturing IG frame production system, in conjunction with the proven Intercept Spacer, has enabled our customers to routinely produce thousands of IG windows day-after-day with 100 percent computer controlled repeatable quality. So, it is no surprise that the 10 billion foot milestone has been achieved in just 14 years.

All of us at GED offer our sincere thanks to our customers who have made this milestone a reality, and who continue to add significant additional mileage to the record each and every day."

Silver Line Windows, an Andersen Company, was congratulated by GED as the producer of the 10-billionth-foot of Intercept Spacer in the 4th Quarter of 2006 with a plaque presented to Randy Isles, president. "It is a pleasure working with GED as true partners in our window manufacturing process," said Isles.
