Pyroverre acquires the Cluzel mirrors in France


Pyroverre is a glass products processor based in Châteauneuf-du-Rhône (Drome), storer and distributor of fire resistance glasses from Pilkington (NSG group) for the southern part of French territory.
The company, created in 2010, is specialized in the transformation of Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur glass products. She cuts custom glass for a clientele made up of mirror makers and carpenters. Its design office is dedicated to specific customer requests to ensure compliance with fire regulations.
In 2015, the Côté Verre company, founded by Maryline Pereira, joined the group to offer online sales of all types of cut, shaped and then shipped glazing from the production workshop. The online configuration tool makes it easy for customers to order on the site.


Why the Cluzel mirror?
We asked Mathieu Guenin, manager of the company, to explain the reasons for this takeover. Mathieu Guenin and Maryline Pereira know that the implementation is the continuity of Côté Verre's activity, the demand from local customers being recurring and increasingly important. They then form an installation team. They quickly realized that it would be easier to do an external growth operation. They are interested in a possible acquisition and have found the miroiterie Cluzel in Montélimar, near Châteauneuf-du-Rhône. The manager, Danielle Fargier, wanted to retire. She was assisted by Eric Coin on a technical level with solid know-how.
The company's equipment allows for the cutting, shaping and drilling necessary for simple mirror-making operations. It has a van with a glass-holder gantry. The store has an area of ​​80 m2 and the workshop of 160 m2.
The clientele consists mainly of individuals and professionals as well as local administrations.
Integration and transformations
The takeover took place at the end of January 2021. Mathieu Guenin recruited Paul Fabre as agency manager as well as Dorotea Nacasabog as sales assistant. Dannielle Fargier will accompany them for three months to pass on his knowledge to them, while Eric Coin will continue his consulting, cutting and glass installation activity.
The existing store will host a new showroom in the form of a show apartment to enhance the offer of the mirror by presenting the products in situ. Railings, kitchen splashbacks, a floor slab, a staircase and a dielectric mirror hiding a screen. The turnover of around 300,000 euros is expected to rise to 600,000 euros.
Although the health crisis has slightly impacted Pyroverre's activity due to the shutdown of construction sites during the health crisis, Mathieu Guenin remains optimistic and believes that the French economy will rebound rapidly. At the same time, online sales via the Côté Verre site are experiencing significant growth, explains Maryline Pereira.

Industrial straight line edging machines ( 8,10 and 11 wheels and more)

Here we speak about straight line edging machines for industrial glass processing productions. These machines can edge every thickness with possibility for important removal glass (generally up to 5 mm in only one time), and are able to adjust the arises width depending the glass thickness and to reach a bright polishing.

 


 

Cau edging machine

The more important difference between all these straight line edging machines is the speed. With an addition of one diamond wheel (difference between an 8 spindles and a 10 or 11 spindles) we increase the speed about 40% or 50%. (To give an idea, on 10 mm thickness with 8 spindles you can edge with a speed between 1,8 and 2 meters per minute. With a 10 spindles you can reach 2,8 meters and more than 3 meters per minute with an 11 spindles.

 

The other differences between a 10/11 spindles and an 8 spindles.

-In case a spindle is out of order with a 10/11 spindles toy can go on working, only reducing the speed. With an 8 spindles you have to stop working and to wait to repair the out of order spindle.

-For important thicknesses (19 mm or more) you can polish with felt + water with cerium oxide which improves a lot the polishing quality.

 

Others parameters to have a look.

-Maximum thickness in case you edge laminating glass.

-Maximum machine acceptable weight for the glass to be processed, always mainly  in case of laminating glass processing.

-The elements for productivity.

-The way to detect and adjust the polishing wheels wearing.

-The oiling (manual or automatic)

-The rapidity and accuracy to adjust the diamond wheels ( wearing and change)

-The maintenance

 

For this kind of machines, the offer is huge with big technical and purchase prices differences.

The machines comparison proposes 25 technical data, 15 trade marks and 66 machines from 15000 euros up to more than 100 000 euros

 

 

Chinese machines

They produce 2 different kinds of machines. One for their own market, the other for export. Even the last one are rustic. The Europeen service network is generally very weak.

Be careful also in this case about CE rules
