Moving five automated processing lines


Glass Processing | Time Frame: 3 weeks (each) | Staffing: 4-8 People


Following the merger of Viridian and National Glass a number of automated glass processing lines required relocation within New Zealand.

There were three types of production lines moved; three “IGU” lines (for making double glazing), an arrising line and a glass laminating line. They were moved from Auckland to Christchurch, Nelson and Wellington. The job was managed from start to finish by our capable team who provided a turnkey solution for our client.

The different stages of the project consisted of: survey of layout, tolerances, etc > disconnection and disassembly > containerisation and transport of machine parts > reinstallation > commissioning.

Steelcraft took care of all electrical, compressed air, water and hydraulic disconnection and reconnection – the client didn’t have to manage any subcontractors or labour.


All projects were carried out in functioning factories that required Steelcraft to work with production, safety and space constraints in mind at all times.
