The relevant order was issued by Prime Minister of Belarus Sergei Sidorsky during his tour of the company on 3 February.
“The new facility will manufacture a wide range of glass products including energy-saving glass. This glass will be used in new homes, which will facilitate energy saving,” said the Belarusian Prime Minister.
On getting familiar with the construction of the second float-glass production line of Gomelsteklo, Sergei Sidorsky demanded that the project should be implemented in due course. The manufacturing process is scheduled to begin in March. It is the first project of such kind in the glass industry of Belarus. The new manufacturing capacities will increase the volume of production by 2.2 times and the percentage of export to 70%-75%, and create 265 jobs.
