Arabian Float signs up for Gulf Glass 2013

Date: 14 June 2013
Arabian United Float Glass Company, one of the MENA region’s most important and influential glass manufacturers, is one of the latest big name companies to announce its participation at Gulf Glass 2013, taking place 3-5 September 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Float glass is the largest process type, accounting for a lion’s share of the global flat glass demand in developed markets like Europe and the United States. The industry is growing after the global financial meltdown and is particularly led by economic growth in developing countries and the global market for Flat Glass is projected to exceed 34 million metric tons by 2015 according to industry analysts.

Globally, factors such as increasing demand for energy conservation and implementation of new legislation for safety and noise levels at manufacturing units are fueling higher usage of glass in construction activity. The market for advanced flat glass is expected to benefit from features such as low-emissivity, reflective and smart glass. In the automotive sector, increased use of value added glass, use of glazing as styling and differentiating feature, and environmental concerns are driving the use of double-glazed glass. The industry is also deriving growth from new smart-glass products such as electrochromic, switchable glass, self-cleaning window glass and heads-up display windscreens.


AUFGC was the first independent float line in the Middle East and Africa and in order ensure the highest quality production, the company has contracted the best companies in Europe, USA and Far East to provide it with the appropriate technology.


With glass industry professionals registering to attend Gulf Glass 2013 from the African and MENA regions, as well as further afield, AUFGC has clearly identified the huge benefits a focused marketing platform can provide.

“This just goes to prove the strength of the Gulf Glass Exhibition in the region” says Exhibition Director, Derek Burston, “as well as being a global meeting place for the glass industry, it also is increasingly serving as the perfect opportunity for excellence from within the region itself to be displayed to a truly international audience”.
