Welcome to the April 2019 issue of Glass International.
The issue includes exclusive interviews with Turkey’s Gurallar Cam Ambalaj (GCA) and Poland’s CP Glass.
Both are relative newcomers to glassmaking. But each, in its own particular way, has forged ahead and created a name for itself in the industry.
We talk to the leaders of both companies, Abdullah Gayret at GCA and Krzystof Staniek at CP Glass, to discover the secret of their success.
Elsewhere we interview the new SGT president, Stuart Hakes, and his plans for the Society of Glass technology.
Ahead of Glassman South America, speaker Juan Farias, of Mexico’s FAMA, highlights the use of Industry 4.0 in glassmaking. We also provide a country overview of Brazil’s container sector.
Elsewhere, technical submissions are provided by companies such as AGR International, Iris Inspection machines, Tiama, Heye International, Vidromecanica and Applied Vision.
We welcome a return to British Glass with its column, while Prof John Parker supplies his latest History page.
