Modernization of Gomelsteklo allowed double the production of all types of products. 

This was announced by the General Director of the enterprise Ivan Proturo during the exit session of the final board of the Ministry of Architecture and Construction.

The modernization of the company, which began in 2008, is coming to an end. During this time, production lines for the production of polished, laminated and energy-saving glass were put into operation. As Ivan Proturo noted, this increased the efficiency of production.

"The modernization made it possible to double the output, and the export potential of the company was also increased, we were able to compare prices with the world leaders of the industry, which made it possible to confidently trade products in foreign markets," he said.
