Cynthia Andela shows off the Ruby Glass catalogue at this morning’s presentation.

RICHFIELD SPRINGS – Andela Products and its subsidiary, Ruby Lake Glass, expects to break ground in 2020 on a 100,000-square-foot building on a 40-acre parcel just south of the village owned by Otsego Now, company President Cynthia Andela told a gathering of businesspeople this morning at the Richfield Springs Community Coop.

That will still leave room for a 50,000-square-foot building on the site, which could be used by a single company, or subdivided to accommodate several companies, she said at a session organized by the Otsego County Chamber of Commerce.

The 25-year-old company recycles glass, and Ruby Lake colorizes glass that can then be used for crossing stripes and other markings on road pavement.  Andela said her company currently has a contract with New York City to stripe pavement; if you’re there, you can see it in the vicinity of the Flatiron Building.  The product offers “color, friction and durability,” with resulting stripes withstanding 4-5 years of traffic.
