Flat glass group NSG will re-start its Venice, Italy architectural float glass line in the third quarter of 2018.

It said that with process modifications associated with the restart, the Venice line will become capable of producing value-added products.

It said: “By restarting the Venice Line, the NSG Group intends to ensure the stable supply of architectural glass in response to robust market demand in Europe, in view of the planned cold repairs of the group’s operating float glass lines in Europe in the coming years, as well as to drive the group’s shift to a higher value added sales ratio.”
