Şişecam has ignited its new glass packaging furnace in Eskişehir and put its glassware furnace into operation after cold repair.

Şişecam continuously adds value to its regions and stakeholders. By launching its new glass packaging furnace and completing the cold repair of its glassware furnace in Eskişehir, Şişecam announces the world's largest glass production location with a consolidated capacity of around 1 million tons.

Şişecam's Chairman and Executive Member of the Board, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Kırman, shared insights on the investment: “Our glass packaging furnace, initiated with an investment of approximately USD 145 million, will provide employment for an additional 127 people. The furnace, with an annual gross capacity of 198 thousand tons, is set to produce high-quality bottles and jars. This investment, made in a challenging economic climate, ensures we meet increasing demand and support the sectors we serve. As a result, Şişecam Eskişehir Glass Packaging Factory, equipped with five furnaces and 24 lines, has become the World’s largest with a total production capacity of about 760 thousand gross tons annually.”
