Monday included a visit to Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio, and then a tour of two Cardinal Glass plants: a float plant, where they create the glass, and a coatings plant, where they apply different performance coatings to the glass On Tuesday we spent the day at the Kolbe plant, which was a great opportunity to learn how Kolbe designs and makes their fantastic products.
