Pilkington: Abu Dhabi Float Line Announced

Pilkington is to build and operate a 550 tonnes per day capacity float line in Abu Dhabi, through a new joint venture company, Pilkington Emirates LLC.

The new company, a joint venture with UAE-based Al Hamed Enterprises, will order the plant, to be constructed in the Abu Dhabi Industrial Development Zone. The line is due to come on stream in 2008.

The US$200 million project will produce the latest range of Pilkington clear and tinted glasses for the Building Products and Automotive glass markets of the region. Producing predominantly large sizes for the glass processing industry, the plant will be independent and will focus on offering the highest quality of product and service.

Stuart Chambers said "we have long wanted to establish ourselves in the centre of this attractive and vibrant market place. We are now delighted to have formed a partnership with Al Hamed and have no doubts that together we can offer the local markets unrivalled quality and service using the very latest technology."
