Saint-Gobain Isover G+H extending Lübz plant

Since the end of 2003, the innovative high performance insulating material ULTIMATE which combines the advantages of glass wool and rock wool has been produced at the Lübz location.

With it, Saint-Gobain Isover has introduced the insulating material of the future to the market: it is light and very stable, highly compressible and simple to process, has a high level of heat insulation and is fireproof with a melting point of over 1000°C.

Based on the good sales figures which Saint-Gobain Isover G+H AG has recorded in recent months with ULTIMATE, and the promising market prospects associated with that in Germany as well as on export markets, Saint-Gobain’s group management in Paris has decided to further extend the Saint-Gobain Isover plant in Lübz.

It is planned to almost double the capacity within the next few years. The volume of investment will amount to more than 12 mill. Euro. Among other things that are being planned is a considerably larger melting tank with improved melting technology which will do justice also in the long term to the constantly increasing demands in terms of energy efficiency and environmental protection.
