SGD lays the foundation stone of new pharmacy glass plant

In the presence of local representatives, the foundation stone has been laid for SGD’s new manufacturing plant at St.

Quentin Lamotte in the Picardy region.   

The plant, on which work began several months ago and which is due to be operational in the first half of 2015, will be dedicated entirely to specialty glass products for the pharmaceutical industry. The St. Quentin plant will have the capacity to produce 130 tons of glass per day thanks to the latest state-of- the-art equipment. 

This new plant—which presented significant human and technical challenges—is the group’s 11th and is of great strategic importance for SGD as it enables the group to meet the pharmaceutical industry’s highly specialized needs even better than before. 

About 300 people will be employed at the new plant, which will occupy a floorspace of 30,000 m² on a site that offers the possibility for future extensions.
