The NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Glass have announced plans for the construction of a new float glass plant in Jacarei, close to São Paulo, in Brazil.

The plant will have a daily output of 900 tonnes to supply Brazil's construction market and is due to come on stream in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2011.
 
The manufacturing facility will be the fifth float line operated by Cebrace Cristal Plano Ltda, the joint venture between the NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Glass in Brazil. The project also envisages the installation of a magnetron line to produce off-line coated glass.
 
With this installation using the latest leading-edge technology, the Jacarei site, which already has two float lines and one laminated glass line, will be able to increase its production by 60 per cent and become the largest glass complex on the American continent.
 
The new facility will enable Cebrace to support the growth of the Brazilian building market and confirm its leading position in Brazil.
