Saint-Gobain Starts New Jumbo Coater at Polish Plant
Saint-Gobain’s Dąbrowa Górnicza plant in Poland started a new jumbo coater in July. Company officials say the magnetron coater represents a $35.5 million investment, and will be used to manufacture coated glass for high-performance and high-added-value solutions for the residential and nonresidential construction industry.
The plant currently has two floats, a coater, a mirror line, a laminated glass line and three cutting lines, and has an annual flat glass production capacity of over 294 million square feet. The Dąbrowa Górnicza plant produces SGG Planitherm XN, a low-emissivity glass that maximizes the energy efficiency of double- and triple-glazed windows.
