Şişecam Group, a leading player in global glass industry celebrates 40th anniversary of its double glazing brand “Isıcam”.  Şişecam Group, a global actor in business fields including all main areas of glass (flat glass, glassware, glass packaging and fiberglass) as well as soda and chrome compounds, introduced its leading flat glass brand Isıcam in 1974 in Turkey.

Thanks to use of Isıcam since 1974 and improved heat insulation provided by Trakya Cam’s premium double glazing brands “Isıcam Sinerji” and “Isıcam Konfor” since 1995, Turkey has saved $ 9 billion in its energy expenses for heating and cooling.

Dr. Reha Akçakaya, Executive Vice President for Flat Glass Business of Şişecam Group, stated that in 40 years 10 million households and workplaces in Turkey preferred Isıcam products and said “We take justified pride of owning the leader brand of Isıcam in the market.”

October 20th 2014- Şişecam Group, Europe’s second, world’s third largest producer in glassware; Europe’s third, world’s sixth largest producer in flat glass, and Europe’s fourth, world’s fifth largest producer in glass packaging in terms of production capacity celebrates 40th anniversary of its leading double glazing brand “Isıcam”.

Dr. Reha Akçakaya, Executive Vice President for Flat Glass Business of Şişecam Group, emphasized in his statement for 40th anniversary of Isıcam that the company introduced double glazing which provides 50 % better heat insulation under the brand of Isıcam in 1974. He said “Isıcam has evolved into a generic brand for double glazing in Turkey since these 40 years. 10 million households and workplaces preferred Isıcam during these years. We take justified pride of owning the leading brand of Isıcam in the market.”

Akçakaya highlighted that Isıcam is the only generic brand in the global market and said “Isıcam improves our quality of life with 40 years of its companionship. We have produced 130 million square meters of Isıcam during last 40 years and had to triple our production capacity in accordance with the increasing demand in last 10 years. As a corporation committed to energy saving and efficient use of energy since our establishment, we continue to introduce environment friendly, green, sustainable, energy saving products with Isıcam brand. Today, we introduce products with 4 times better heat insulation capacity compared to standard double glazing brands in the market.”

Isıcam for a sustainable future

Akçakaya stressed that Isıcam’s state of the art, environment friendly products contribute to a sustainable future for all and said “Living in a cleaner environment by consuming less energy is an essential aim for every one of us now. Thanks to use of Isıcam since 1974 and improved heat insulation provided our premium double glazing brands Isıcam Sinerji and Isıcam Konfor since 1995, Turkey has saved $ 9 billion in its energy expenses for heating and cooling. Unfortunately half of the households in Turkey still use single glass on their windows. If we had a magic wand in our hand and could change all window glasses of all households in Turkey with Isıcam Sinerji or Isıcam Konfor, we could save up to $ 2.6 billion every year. Not the mention that we need 27.5 million trees in order to compensate carbon dioxide emission due to this energy loss. Everyone who changes their single glass on their windows with Isıcam Sinerji or Isıcam Konfor contributes to the environment as two oak trees. It is also one oak tree for changing standard double glazing with these premium products.”
