The Bystronic glass Group has received a large multi-million Swiss francs order from Saudi Arabia . As 2009 drew to a close, Richard Jakob and Fahad Al-Harbi, Chairman of the Wajhat Glass & Aluminium Factory as well as Vice Chairman and CEO of the Al Harbi Holding, finalized the deal with the system’s installation scheduled to begin in April 2010.  “Bystronic glass will be supplying all the equipment for a new production hall to be built in the Arabian desert ”, Richard Jakob, CEO of the Bystronic glass Group, commented.

He went on to explain: “The hall will be handed over to the customer for immediate occupancy - a project of this magnitude is both exceptional and fascinating.”

The order also incorporates a cutting and sorting system, a fully-automated insulating glass line, handling systems along with lines for production of laminated safety glass and tempered glass. This will be the first installation of its kind where the system is directly connected to the furnace and insulating-glass line with an expansion option for the sorting system to include other processes.
 
Until now, the Wajhat Glass & Aluminium Factory, which is a company of the Saudi Marble & Granite Factory Co., has concentrated on processing marble and granite – the acquisition of the Bystronic glass systems marks their entrance into the glass industry. The decision to commission Bystronic glass to fully equip the hall was made by the Saudi Arabian company on the basis of the quality on offer: Machines from the Bystronic glass Technology Center Bystronic Lenhardt GmbH had already left a very positive impression in the past on Fahad Al-Harbi’s advisors.
