Guardian Glass started full production on a technologically advanced new glass coater. its second facility in Czestochowa, Poland.
The state-of-the-art coater uses advanced technology for turning standard float glass into high performance, value-added glass.
It will enable the plant to expand production of low-emissivity (low-E), solar control glass products for residential (Guardian ClimaGuard) and commercial (Guardian SunGuard) applications.
Guardian’s second float and coated glass manufacturing plant in Poland, being built adjacent to its existing Czestochowa plant, will allow Guardian Glass to meet the growing demand for high performance coated and fabricated glass products in Eastern Europe.
The new facility is the most efficient and operationally effective plant within Guardian Glass.
Czestochowa’s original float glass line recently went through a cold tank repair, increasing its production capacity by around 25%.
With both furnaces, Guardian Glass is tripling production in Poland. These investments will enable Guardian to produce and develop value-added products for the Eastern Europe region quickly and efficiently.
The new float line at Czestochowa is expected to begin operations in September 2020.
