Turkish table glass manufacturer Gürallar has placed an order with Horn Glass for an end-fired furnace.

The 300tpd furnace with three forehearth lines for container glass production is for Gürallar’s new company, Gürallar Cam Ambalaj, based on a 300,000m2 site in Kütaya.

The Gürallar Group decided to form the new company earlier in the year to produce container glass.

The group, established in 1948, has also changed the Artcraft brand to LAV, which it said reflected the young and dynamic spirit of the group. It said it had renewed its identity to become a global brand.
