Glass Aggregate Systems
manufactures glass recycling equipment which processes glass into a useable end
product in a one pass operation.
In 1991, the inventor, having almost 40 years experience in the manufacturing business,
developed the first glass processing machine for home use. After becoming aware
that an abundance of recyclable glass and ceramics was not being recycled, the challenge
was met to build a glass processing machine that would produce a reusable end product.
The development of these machines resulted in the capability of producing a consistent
sized aggregate in a once through process at large volumes if needed. This material
was tested and a Sieve Analysis was completed in 1994. The customer has the option
of changing the aggregate size easily and with little time involved. The end product
of desired size can then be used in many different types of applications. Some of
these include: road construction materials such as concrete or asphalt, sandblasting
media, drain field material, and water filtration media. The glass-sand aggregate
can range in gradation sizes from as large or as small as you need due to the capability
of the design of the glass machine.
G.A.M.E. was incorporated in 1993. A glass processing facility was opened in 1994,
in St. Paul, MN. to accommodate testing, further developing of the glass machine,
and finding markets for the end product. After 2 ½ years, G.A.M.E., Inc. began manufacturing
and selling to other recycling facilities with a patent received shortly thereafter.
Then in 2002, in order to expand the growth of G.A.M.E., Inc., the corporation was
purchased by T& M Engineering and Manufacturing, Inc. dba Glass Aggregate Systems
and moved to its present location into a newly expanded facility.
Today, it is the pledge of Glass Aggregate Systems to successfully fulfill their
motto: “Building Glass Recycling Equipment that is durable, yet easily and inexpensively
maintained with our customers’ needs first in mind.”
