February 2017

In the February issue of Glass International we have exclusive interviews with Ardagh, Gerresheimer, Chile’s Cristoro and Brazil’s Vidroporto.

Greg Morris exclusively visits Ardagh’s Limmared site in Sweden, home of its Absolut bottle production, to see the results of the recent €21 million refurbishment that will enable it to focus on the craft beer and cider market. 

The Swedish plant is one of the oldest glass plants in the world dating back to 1740, and Operations Director Bo-Lennart Nilsson shows how the recent investments have kept it up to speed with modern market demands.  

Ahead of Glassman South America next month we bring you an overview of the region’s hollow glass industry, including company profiles on Vidroporto and family business Cristalerias Toro (Cristoro).

Closer to home, we have updates on Gerresheimer’s Wertheim and Lohr plants, both of which focus on how the company ensures its high standards are maintained in the stringent pharmaceutical market.

On top of this we have features from Bucher Emhart, RHI and Horn amongst others, as well as our usual round up of industry news, columns and events.
