Intervala Expands Business with TIAMA with New Product Win and Contract Extension

PITTSBURGH, August 7, 2019—Intervala, LLC, a full-service manufacturer of high-reliability, precision electronic and electromechanical products, announced today that it has expanded its business with TIAMA, the world leader in inspection and quality control solutions for the glass packaging industry. TIAMA’s American subsidiary, TIAMA AMERICAS, has awarded Intervala a new contract to manufacture precision defect-detection cameras for select models of TIAMA proprietary glass container inspection equipment. TIAMA also has extended by two years an earlier agreement under which Intervala provides other related products and systems. Intervala is manufacturing the sophisticated equipment at its East Pittsburgh, Pa, facility.

 The complex TIAMA cameras use the high-speed CoaXPress (CXP) imaging interface to detect and transmit high-resolution evidence of hard-to-spot, low-contrast defects in glass container finishes and sidewalls. Intervala will employ its broad range of electronics manufacturing capabilities to produce the cameras for TIAMA. Additionally, with the contract extension, Intervala will continue to manufacture and provide aftermarket support for other glass container inspection equipment. Manufacturers of glass bottles, jars and vials use proprietary TIAMA inspection technology to detect defects in the containers before they are shipped to the user.

 “We are delighted to expand our relationship with TIAMA,” said Teresa Huber, Intervala president and CEO. “The award of new business and extension of our manufacturing agreement are gratifying and confirm Intervala’s complete commitment to customer excellence. TIAMA is an innovative and growing global industry leader, and we are honored to serve as their valued manufacturing partner.”

Intervala Donates Sets of Pittsburgh Pirates Tickets to Help Local Service Members

Next time you or your company have tickets available for a sporting or entertainment event, consider donating them to the good people at the Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix). Vet Tix provides donated tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and other family activities at no cost to all branches of currently serving military and veterans, including immediate family of troops killed in action. Their goal is to provide access to events that reduce stress, strengthen family bonds, build life-long memories and encourage service members and veterans to stay engaged with their local communities and the American life. Intervala is proud to support Vet Tix’s mission of giving back to those who gave.

As a Pittsburgh Pirates season ticket holder, we will be donating multiple sets of tickets through the end of the regular season so local service members and their families can enjoy a home game. This week a military family will be rooting for a home-team win when the Chicago Cubs are in town on July 4. Let’s go Bucs!

Intervala Marks National Safety Month with Employee Celebration

Intervala is joining thousands of other organizations across the country to celebrate National Safety Month in June. Our employees strive for zero accidents all year long and we thought this was a particularly good time to celebrate our vigilance. Employees gathered this week for special zero-shaped treats (you guessed it—donuts!) and a presentation on workplace safety from Safety Committee President Keith Nelson. To recognize committee members’ service, we also posted their photos around our facility. As with many Intervala teams, serving on the Safety Committee is open to all employees. Kudos to Keith and the entire Safety Committee for all they do to help us stay safe and healthy every day. A future with zero workplace accidents—sweet!
