NSG Group Invests at Its Glass Cord Production in Great Britain

The site will become the first fully-integrated high tensile strength glass cord manufacturing factory in Europe and the only such facility outside Japan. The investment will add a fiber-forming facility at the site, an important primary process in glass cord manufacture, involving the production of glass fiber filament. The growth in the market for high tensile strength glass cord created by the ever-increasing technological developments in the automotive market has led to the decision to invest in a facility which will manufacture the filament from raw materials. The new facility will shorten production times with the site reducing its dependency on filament delivery from NSG in Japan and reduce transport costs and environmental impact, in line with the Group’s Sustainability agenda. The new fiber forming line is expected to be commissioned in June 2013. (10/2012)
