Saint-Gobain Glass puts EUR 6 million into production line

Newsroom 25/05/2010 | 11:41

Glass producer Saint-Gobain Glass is investing another EUR 6 million in an industrial production line for laminated safety glass at its existing facility in Calarasi.

While preparatory work has already begun on the site, the main construction will begin in the second half of this year and the unit will be commissioned around the middle of 2011.

“Our Romanian production platform was meant from the very beginning to have a regional approach, supplying markets throughout the Balkans and beyond. From our perspective, the growth potential of Romania and the surrounding markets remains intact despite the current economic difficulties. It therefore makes business sense to add new capabilities and to continually expand our locally-manufactured product range. This is a part of the long-term commitment we made to Romania and regional markets,” said Ovidiu Pascutiu, general manager of Saint-Gobain Glass Romania.

The new investment is the third in a series, coming hot on the heels of an initial over EUR 100 million investment in a float glass plant, commissioned in 2007, and a EUR 30 million coating line, which was opened for business in 2008, making Saint-Gobain Glass one of the biggest greenfield investors in Romania.

All three production lines are located within the company’s industrial site in Calarasi.

The upcoming laminated safety glass production line, which, like the coating line, will be unique in the region, will have an annual output of about 2 million sqm.
