Besides, $4 million will be raised with 4-year investment recoupment period for construction of a factory of soda silicate and potash silicate.

Construction will take place at the same time and the customer is the same.

Another $21 million with recoupment term of 7 years is raised for construction of a glass container producer factory. Construction term is 14-18 months, and its customer is NAVITAS Engineering & Management Consultant.

The largest project is the construction of a glass (float) production plant with a total investment of $222,469,763, of which 35% is drawn as a loan and 65% as equity stakes of the shareholders. The plant will produce 700 tons of glass per day. The customer here is PRO Group Consulting.

“It is clear that boom times are back for the Middle East’s glass industry” says Derek Burston, exhibition director, Gulf Glass 2013, “and it is this optimism, and level of planning, coinciding with our positioning of next year’s edition of the exhibition at the Dubai World Trade Centre, for the first time” he adds.

Next year’s exhibition, although not until September, already has reservations for over 1,100 sq metres of the available space.

“We do have the option for expansion” adds Burston “and this may be important, as the initial bookings received have all exceeded our projected average stand size by some margin” he concludes.
