The mega Greenfield glass manufacturing complex which is coming up in about 210 acres, is expected to generate employment for about 2,000 people. The new industry will serve the market demands to US, Middle East, South East Asia and Europe.

HNG chairman C.K. Somany, vice-chairman and managing directors Sanjay Somany and Mukul Somany, director Bharat Somany and other company officials performed ‘bhoomi puja' and launched the construction works at Menakur Industrial Park in the district on Thursday.

Speaking at a press conference later, the chairman said HNG will invest about Rs. 4,000 crore on the project in the coming years and the first unit would be constructed at a cost of Rs. 700 crore.
