Saint-Gobain Group in Poland modernized its float glass production line at its facility in Dąbrowa Górnicza. The investment will increase Saint-Gobain Poland’s float glass production potential for the construction sector by 25 percent, say company officials.

"I would like to express my pride that I am here today with you to participate in the inauguration of this remarkably modern line," said François-Xavier Moser, president of Saint-Gobain in Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey during the opening ceremony. "This investment worth [97.6] million shows that Poland is an important country in Saint-Gobain's development strategy. We started our industrial activity here in 1994. Today, we employ over 7,000 employees, we have 25 production plants. So it's safe to say that our position on the Polish market is very strong.”

The new float line in Dąbrowa Górnicza is equipped with a modern system of nitrogen oxides emission reduction and will consume 20 percent less energy. The line will produce almost 1,000 tons of Planiclear glass per day, in thicknesses of 1.4 millimeters and in widths up to 16.08 feet.
