A proposal for the ensuing co-operation negotiations has been issued today.
For productional and financial reasons, Tamglass Glass Processing will close its working machine and special automotive glass business. The company will enhance its architectural glass business, which will become a stronger priority in the future. The business facing closure currently employs approximately thirty (30) staff.
In its strategy, Glaston has designated Tamglass Glass Processing as being outside its core business, and strategic options for its future remain under review in Glaston.
