The July/August 2023 issue focuses on glassmaking investments and the South Korean glass industry.
O-I’s €50 million investment at its Vayres glass plant in France is the focus of our headline feature.
Further investments include Glass Futures’ £54 million global research centre, based in the UK, and Verallia’s second furnace installation at its Jacutinga plant in Brazil, which is part of a €60 million expansion.
With Glassman Asia on the horizon, this issue also includes an overview of the South Korean glass industry, as well as an interview with Verescence’s CEO Thomas Riou on the manufacturer’s acquisition of Paficglas.
Elsewhere, we review the Society of Glass Technology’s Furnace Solutions conference and our Glass Connect networking event.
