During the last quarter of 2004, an ultra-modern Lisec automatic glass-cutting table, a second Lisec double glazing line equipped with the latest edge deletion facility and upgrade of sealing robot and a Schiatti double-edger and four-holed drilling station were installed and commissioned. The company's forced convection furnace is recognized as the largest tempering furnace in the world.

We have already set an incredible pace of growth and we are sure our production capabilities and unmatched quality will be noticed at the global level,' said Mr. Ziad Yazbeck, Sales and Marketing Director.
The commissioning of these formidable equipment and machinery is expected to enable Emirates Glass to guarantee continuous and highest professional service to its clients and meet delivery schedules.
