October  2016

The October issue of Glass International features an exclusive interview with Sandra Santos, CEO of BA Vidro, who discusses the company’s recent acquisitions and how the company is one of the most efficient glass packaging companies in Europe.

We also focus on the recent Society of Glass Technology (SGT) centenary events, with an in-depth look at the conference events held recently in its honour in Sheffield.

Our technical articles this month look at the topics of furnaces, moulds, automation and Industry 4.0, with features from companies such as Electroglass, Intermolde, Heye International and Siemens.

This is all on top of our regular news items and columns from John Henderson and John Parker.
