800 tons of glass for Australia's most glorious plant

Waratah – a word that sounds quite dark and mysterious. One can easily imagine a speaker pronouncing this word with so many "A"s – proudly and with his head raised.

As is at least the case with FLACHGLAS Wernberg.        

 

Waratah derives from the language of the Aboriginals and is the name for a shrub which may grow to 4 metres with beautiful, dark red flowers. The Aboriginals’ legend on Waratah is – needless to say – a deeply moving love story. A young pretty woman loves a young strong man. Then, a battle breaks the bond of love. Thereupon, the desolately mourning woman changes into a hauntingly beautiful flower, exactly at the same place she used to await her beloved.

Now, what has this to do with Wernber pride? Well, in Australia the Waratah bloom enjoys great popularity. It is not only the floral emblem of New South Wales, but also the name for the largest Australian rolling stock order in the continent’s history. Guess now who is responsible for the glazing of the rolling transport fleet!

The project includes the production of 78 eight-car trains. A total of 626 carriages will finally be delivered. The last set is scheduled to be delivered to CityRail in 2014. All trains are operating within the local transport network of Greater Sydney.

FLACHGLAS Wernberg has shipped around 25,000 glass units by mid-2013 all laminated safety glass that meets highest energy-related requirements as well as several special Australian standards. Up to now, more than 800 tons of processed glass products left Wernberg-Koeblitz for Downunder.

In Sydney, FLACHGLAS Wernberg operates its own warehouse for the Waratah programme, thus ensuring that the timing of the project is not put at risk by considerable delivery times. Ultimate reliability, highest quality standards and smooth ways of communication have conduced to success: Over the past five years there hasn’t been a single complaint. Now you’ll understand why the word Waratah fills FLACHGLAS Wernberg with pride.
