Tanzania Float Glass Facility Near Completion
The construction of a float glass manufacturing factory in Mkiu Village in Tanzania has reached 90% completion, according to a report by Tanzania Daily News.
The Sapphire Float Glass (Tanzania) Co. Ltd., owned by Chinese investor Jack Feng, is responsible for the project. It brings several economic benefits, including a reduction in Tanzania’s import bill for glass products, a surge in foreign exchange profits and expanded exports to neighboring nations. When the project is complete it will be able to produce 700 tons of float glass, toughened glass and mirror per day at the first production line and 500 tons per day at the second line.
