About Us

In 1990 Andela Products, a local metal manufacturing and machine design company, asked the question; Why not turn glass back into sand? The Andela Glass Pulverizer was the first product designed specifically to turn waste glass back into user-friendly sand. With continued innovation, Andela Products expanded into designing complete systems for glass to pulverize, clean and screen post-consumer waste glass and offers a wide range of equipment and systems for the glass and other recycling markets.

In 2006 Andela Products was officially recognized as a (WOBE) Woman Owned Business Enterprise with Cynthia Andela as acting President who continues to manage the business..

In response to customer demand, Andela Products has a team to provide turnkey systems to your specifications which are designed, built and installed by Andela Products. Their team of professionals has many years of experience and will work with you to ensure your system will provide many years of useful service. Over the years Andela Products progressed from a small tool and machine shop to a multi-million dollar business with the ability to handle everything from mixed broken glass to windshields.

Today, Andela Products produces a growing line of rugged, versatile machines that are sold worldwide to serve the special needs of the glass recycling industry. Each product is thoughtfully designed and engineered to provide a high capacity to cost ratio and superior durability.

The Andela glass is crushed, but not sharp. It is sized and graded to be a natural sand replacement that can be used in every community. Andela Systems produce a value added commodity which can then be sold either wholesale or retail.

Andela Products is committed to staying on the cutting edge of innovation in order to continue to bring its customers the best technology available to solve their glass recycling issues as the industry continues to evolve and expand.

We are pleased to have you with us, and hope you will find your interactions with Andela interesting and rewarding.

Ruby Lake Glass

And just like that a partnership was formed, a factory in upstate New York was built and Ruby Lake Glass was born! The colored glass crystals produced in Utica, NY had many uses and with growing interest in bike and pedestrian safety, Ruby Lake color coated glass aggregate quickly became a recognized national brand. Green, repurposed, friction based, durable, and with color that lasts; Ruby Lake is now an industry leader in the field of colored surface demarcation.
