Guardian investment meets growing demand

Guardian Glass has conducted the official inauguration of a laminated glass production line at its float plant in Orosháza, Hungary. The line supports growing demand in Europe, producing both standard and coated laminated glass, as well as specialty products such as acoustic, thick, coated and coloured alternatives.

The fully automated line is already producing 150 truckloads of material every month, primarily for customers in Hungary, Romania and the Balkan countries. It is also a logical continuation of a change initiated at the Orosháza plant by Guardian Glass in 2016, which saw a switch from standard clear float glass production to the company’s higher light transmission alternative, Guardian ExtraClear, to meet increased need for more natural daylight in buildings.

In addition to the Orosháza plant, Guardian Glass operates facilities in Częstochowa (Poland), Thalheim (Germany) and Ryazan and Rostov (Russia), among its 10 European float plant locations
