Guardian Glass to Construct Second Floatand Coated Glass Plant
Guardian Industries has approved the investment for an additional float and coated glass manufacturing plant in Czestochowa/PL to meet the growing demand for float, coated and fabricated glass products across Europe.
The new facility location is planned to be adjacent to the company’s existing plant, with preparation and execution of the project starting immediately. The facility is expected to begin operations in the 3rd quarter of 2019, and will create more than 150 new jobs. It will pull 1000 t/d of glass and will include a technologically advanced glass coater. Further evidence of the company’s commitment to Poland, Guardian Glass’ existing float line in Czestochowa will go through a repair project at the start of 2018 that will increase its production capacity. In addition to the Czestochowa plant, Guardian Glass operates facilities in Oroshaza/HU, Thalheim/DE, Ryazan/RU, and Rostov/RU among its 10 European float plant locations.
