Saint-Gobain and NSG Group have announced the construction of a new flat glass (float) plant in Jacarei, close to São Paulo, in Brazil.

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