Schott will invest R$ 10.5 million in an expansion at its Indaiatuba plant in São Paulo, Brazil.

Schott’s Brazilian branch (Schott Flat Glass do Brasil) will expand the production capacity and automation of its processes at its Indaiatuba plant.

The company acquired a new flat oven and automated the drill line with the aim of increasing its glass tempering capacity by 45% and the unit's cutting capacity by 35%.

With the investment, Schott’s total capacity in Brazil will grow by 55% and is expected to have a 40% increase in sales throughout South America later this year.
