NSG Group’s architectural business in Poland held an official ceremony and grand opening of its new manufacturing plant in Bialystok, based in Eastern Poland. Clients, employees and representatives of the NSG Group attended the event.

The plant is equipped with four modern lines for the production of double glazing together with glass cutting systems. The new glass hardening furnace is waiting to be installed. The construction of the plant with an area of over 32,000 square feet was heated by the Panattoni Europe, with which Pilkington has already cooperated during the construction of a modern production and logistics center in Chmielów. It will create around 200 jobs with the possibility of further expansion.

This is another NSG Group investment in this city. The Pilkington IGP branch in Bialystok has been involved in the production of double glazing and metal glass racks for many years, say company officials. “The dynamic development of the window market in Poland, as well as favorable conditions for business development in this region, influenced our decision on further investments in Bialystok,” says Krzysztof Granicki, managing director, Architectural Glass East and Nordic Europe. “The construction of a new processing plant will strengthen the position of our company in this region, and will also contribute to an even greater improvement of customer service.”
