SGD Pharma celebrated the renovation of its Zhanjiang, China glass manufacturing furnace with a lighting ceremony.

According to the century-old French glassmaker tradition, the new furnace was lighted by its godmother.

A master flame, kept from the same fire that was used to light its precedent furnace, was relayed through a human chain.

The chain included employees, engineers, technicians, experts from sister plants in France, our General Manager, the French Consul General for South China and a representative of Zhanjiang city.

The flame finally went to Ms. Chunyan Zheng, Deputy General Manager Industrial Operation, who had been chosen as the Godmother of the furnace. She completed the ceremony by lighting up the new furnace.
