New York-based OpticGlazing is making a $100,000 to $200,000 job opening in the next year after being acquired by the largest glazing manufacturer in the United States.
The company has been operating in Florida since 2009.
The company is the latest in a line of companies that have opened in the past two years, including two in New York, according to the company.
Optic glazing machines are among the most expensive machines in the world, costing more than $2,500 each, but with the right equipment, a $2.6 million job can be filled within five to 10 years.
The company’s CEO, Peter Tambellini, told Bloomberg that the company has created a manufacturing and supply chain, which will allow it to be profitable in five years.
“The way it works is if you buy a machine, it’s going to be delivered to you in 10 to 15 days,” Tambettini said.
“The factory that builds it is a one-stop shop.
And then you put in the parts, assemble it, and you go from there.””
And if you have a lot of workers that can’t find work, they’ll find work,” Tamberellini said, adding that Optic is one of the few companies in the country that can do it for $1.5 million per worker.
The new company will make about 30 machines a week, Tambardini said on a call with reporters, including some that will go into production in two to three years.
Optics are expected to produce at least one million machines in total.
The biggest challenges for Optic will be to keep up with demand for its machines.
OptiGlaze will have to convince workers that it is good at glazing their work, which it has already done by offering them a discount.
The job, as it is currently run, is usually for a one year contract.
But it is also important to keep workers interested and engaged, Tamberllini said: “You’ve got to keep the people that are coming here and they have to keep coming back and saying, ‘This is what I want.'”
