Edgetech Celebrates One Billion Feet of Super Spacer®

Edgetech I.G. Inc. of Cambridge, Ohio, celebrated the production of its one-billionth foot of Super Spacer on July 24.
Edgetech's 1-billionth foot of spacer came off the line as the company was filling an order for Jeld-Wen Windows and Doors. Edgetech's executive vice president Larry Johnson and regional sales manager Erin Barker presented the 1-billionth foot in a commemorative shadow box to Jeld-Wen Canada general manager Martin Seier and Jeld-Wen Winnipeg general manager Tod Blanchard at a celebration held July 27 at the company's Winnipeg facility.

Just how long is one billion feet? Employees did some research and learned that they would be able to wrap the insulating foam tape around the earth more than seven times, or stretch it from New York to Los Angeles more than 38 times (roundtrip).

"It took us by surprise when we looked at our data and realized we just produced one billion feet of Super Spacer," said Edgetech president Mike Hovan. "It's a very impressive mark and we are extremely proud of our employees who made it happen."

According to Hovan, Super Spacer can be found in more than 100 million insulating glass units--or 50 to 60 million windows--in as many as 60 countries.

"This symbolizes more than 1 billion feet," said Hovan. "The milestone is exciting, but it's the fact that our customers are part of this milestone that truly makes it a success. High quality products; valuable relationships; dedicated employees: these are the constants over the last 17 years that have led to this exciting achievement."
