Guardian Glass added a new laminated glass production line at its Oroshaza, Hungary plant. The new line will produce both standard and coated laminated glass, as well as specialty products such as acoustic, colored and thick laminated glass. Laminated glass production is expected to begin in first quarter 2018, according to a company release.

“The Oroshaza plant already has a coated glass production line and so the opening of a laminated glass line will also enable us to offer an optimal product mix to our customers, for residential and commercial segments, including low-emissivity, solar control and other specialty laminated coated glass products such as anti-reflective Guardian Clarity,” says Guus Boekhoudt, vice president, Guardian Glass Europe, and managing director, Guardian Europe.

Due to these changes and in response to market trends and advances in mirror technology, Guardian Glass has decided to discontinue production of mirror glass at its Oroshaza plant,company officials note in the release. The mirror line will cease production at the end of March 2017, however, Guardian Glass will keep serving customers in Europe with its UltraMirror product from its Dudelange plant in Luxembourg.
