AGC Glass Europe Officially Unveils World's Largest Flat Glass Line In Russia

AGC Glass Europe officially unveils world's largest flat glass line in RussiaAGC Glass Europe has just inaugurated the world's largest flat glass production line in Klin (Moscow region) on 23 September.

This €150 million investment is AGC's fourth float line in Russia (and the second at this plant). The unit has a capacity of 1,000 tonnes/day and will serve the growing demand for construction glass.
 
Heeding calls for added value
The line, which started up on 24 May 2010, produces high-quality glass in thicknesses ranging from 4 to 12 mm for subsequent incorporation into superinsulating glasses, laminated safety glasses and decorative glasses (mirrors and varnished glasses) at the Klin plant. Part of the plant's float glass output is sold as is - via the AGC Glass Russia distribution network - in the form of large sheets for processors. "This new line is not only ideally situated but also enables us to step up the local presence of our products and services in the large consumer centres of Saint Petersburg and Moscow. The timing is perfect now that demand on the Russian market is rising, especially for high-value-added products for the construction sector," says Vladimir Shigaev, General Manager of AGC Glass Russia.
 
Driven by innovation
Technical innovations deployed in this new facility also mean more efficient float glass production in terms of both quality and energy consumption. These innovations also make it possible to quickly adjust supply in line with demand, representing a real competitive edge on the Russian market. "In addition to bolstering our glass industry leadership in Eastern Europe, this investment in Russia's largest glassmaking facility clearly illustrates AGC Glass Europe's ambition to shape the future of glass with innovative solutions," concludes Jean-François Heris, President & CEO of AGC Glass Europe.
