The company conducts activities in 4 main areas: architectural glass (flat glass, patterned glass, mirror, laminated glass, and coated glass); automotive- and other transportation-related glass products, energy glass, and home appliance glass.

Flat glass production under the governance of Şişecam Group began with "flat technology" at the Çayırova Factory in 1961; the second flat glass furnace was commissioned in 1967. During the following decade, the Group diversified its products; and, with the factory it took over in 1981, the company became the first organization to produce modern float technology in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Middle East and North Africa bloc. Şişecam Flat Glass has pioneered many practices in its industry since then and has led in the development of the flat glass industry both in Turkey and in the region.

The company realized significant quality and capacity increases in the 1980’s, when it entered the global markets; the company expanded its operations abroad, envisioning regional leadership and a multifocal production approach by opening its Trakya Glass Bulgaria EAD factory in Bulgaria late in the first decade of the 2000’s — in 2006, to be exact.

In 2009, Şişecam Flat Glass took a strategic step by taking the decision of actualizing its flat glass operations in Egypt and Russia in partnership with Saint-Gobain — one of the world’s largest players in the sector — and commissioned its Automobile Glass Factory in Bulgaria in 2010, as well as laminated and coated glass facilities in 2013.

In 2013, the company acquired shares of in the HNG Float Glass limited (HNG) company in India, and further continued its expansion in Europe by acquiring Richard Fritz holding company. Şişecam Flat Glass also invested in two new factories in Russia and Romania t​o produce automotive glass.

Meanwhile, the Group continued its domestic investments and currently provides products for the construction, automotive, energy and household-appliance industries through its production plants, partnerships and expanding product range in 9 different countries with a total of 16 factories.

With the vision of becoming a rapidly growing global flat glass company by offering strong brands and innovative solutions, Şişecam Flat Glass plans to continue its regional growth with its forthcoming investments in Turkey, the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Egypt, Russia.
