Quality That Lasts
Since 1971, George Ford & Sons, Inc. has been a leading manufacturer of fused silica tempering oven rollers. Headquartered in the Philadelphia region, the company supplies glass and oven manufacturers worldwide with new and refinished rollers that allow clients to produce the highest quality glass products. The combination of our decades of experience, demonstrated expertise, patented designs, and the unique ability to control every aspect of the manufacturing process onsite—from castings to end caps, machining, inspecting and chipping—ensures that FORDROLL fused silica rollers are always built with quality that lasts and allows us to provide emergency delivery to our clients when needed.
Prior to our founding, George Ford, then president of A.B. Landis, Inc., was a leader in the research and development of some of the world's earliest horizontal tempering ovens and rollers, predating the introduction of fused silica as a roller material. In 1971, he founded our company to continue his innovative vision of improving the quality of tempering rollers.
George Ford & Sons, Inc. is proud to be the oldest manufacturer of fused silica rollers in the United States.
