Cameroon container glass manufacturer SABC plans to invest FCFA 5 billion ($8.8 million) to boost the production of its glassware

The limited company breweries in Cameroon (SABC) said it was considering the renovation of furnace No. 1 (line 11) and the acquisition of a 3rd forming line within the subsidiary company Cameroonian glassworks (Socaver).

It said in a statement that the renovated furnace no.1 would start at the end of 2023, while the new forming line would be ready by the end of April next year.

SABC said the investment would satisfy the increased demand of its commercial partners.

SABC invested FCFA 6 billion in 2019 in the plant to increase production from 32,500 to 38,500 tonnes of glass per year.
