Press-Glas realises its planned investments

Press-Glas is to commence a highly efficient production of solar control glass and photovoltaic panels in a factory in the Łódź Special Economic Zone (Subzone Radomsko), that after a recently started development – with a total area of 30,000 m2 – will be the biggest European production plant processing glass for the building industry.

This will be possible thanks to the use of a tunnel furnace for strengthening purposes, operating together with fast glass cutting lines. Glass edge-polishing lines and machining centres will create new possibilities for furniture, household appliance and shower cubicle manufacturers. The project increases employment prospects in the production and administrative sectors, with a minimum of 50 new employees. The project will be completed by the first half of next year.

The investment in Radomsko is the most important part of the organisational changes announced by Press-Glas in 2009, with the main objective being to meet increasingly high requirements of clients and confirm its outmatching position on the market.

The possibilities available in the production plant in Radomsko, together with the technologies previously introduced in the factory in Tychy in the form of digital printing of glass by DIGITAL PRINT, the glass toughening process without local distortions PREMIUM TOUGHENED GLASS, own laminating line as well as the purchase of GLASTON, a state-of-the-art glass toughening furnace using traditional technology, will fulfil all previously announced plans of the company.

In the future, the production halls of the Radomsko factory will enable installing additional glass glazing lines, which will completely ensure the stability of the service and the certainty of a short delivery time for window manufacturers in periods of the highest production rates.

The investment’s mode of implementation will take into account minimising the negative impact on the environment, in compliance with the ISO 14001:2004 environmental management system.

The official presentation of the business development permit was delivered to Press-Glas by the Management Board of Łódź Special Economic Zone at the end of September.
