Euroglas Opens Fifth Float Glass Plant
Patron Gabriela lighting the furnace at the company’s
Euroglas opened its fifth float glass plant in Poland. Located in Ujazd, production at the plant is already running at full capacity, about three months after ignition of the new melting furnace.
The project's construction schedule was ambitious in its planning and implementation, say company officials. This enabled the furnace to be lit just 51 weeks after the ground-breaking ceremony. The project team also reduced the construction period by two months compared to the previous tank.
The new furnace is named "Gabriela." This follows the tradition that each Euroglas furnace bears its patron's first name; in this case the daughter of Piotr Noga, managing director.
The additional capacity enables Euroglas Polska to satisfy increased demand in the Polish and European glass market, say officials.
