Euroglas has officially opened its fifth float glass furnace.

The latest installation at Ujazd, Poland is already running at full capacity, barely three months after commissioning.

Its project team managed to reduce the construction period by two months compared to the previous tank.

The new furnace is named ‘Gabriela’, following a tradition that each Euroglas furnace bears its patron’s first name; in this case, the daughter of Managing Director Piotr Noga.

The additional capacity enables Euroglas Polska to satisfy increased demand in the Polish and European glass market.

This is one of the world’s largest plants and was established in 2009 in collaboration with Press-Glass .

The four Euroglas plants are in Haldensleben, Germany; Osterweddingen, Germany; Hombourg, France; and Ujazd, Poland and were all founded together with medium-sized partner companies.

Glas Trösch is the parent company and is based in Switzerland.
