Oceanside Announces Retirement of the Uroboros Sheet Glass Line
On September 9, Oceanside Glass and Tile announced their suspension of production of Uroboros sheet glass. The company has been disappointed with the profitability of the hand rolled product line and will now devote their resources to the Continuous Ribbon production line (ie. Spectrum Glass). The hand rolled equipment will remain at the Oceanside factory and management is hopeful that production may resume in the future.
With a few exceptions, Oceanside will continue production of their frit, stringer, noodle and rod product lines. The exceptions being rare earth and gold containing styles and those colors that depend on the hand rolled production line to provide feed stock.
