In a first for the country, a float glass factory will be built in Ukraine.

The factory will be built in Borodyanka in the Kiev region, with the total investment amounting to €300 million.

Production capacity is planned to be at 600 tonnes per day and will create 300 jobs.

Currently, glass is not produced in Ukraine, and the country's economy is completely dependent on products that are imported from Europe and Russia.

Agromat is carrying out the project together with an American technical partner, where 600-700 people will participate in the construction.

The main products of the plant will be energy-saving glasses of all types.

It will also manufacture architectural glass, glasses for solar panels, self-cleaning glasses, glasses for household appliances, ultra-clean glasses for electronics, automotive, tinted, laminated and tempered glasses.

It is believed that the plant will almost completely cover Ukraine’s need for glass and send some of the products for export.

According to preliminary calculations, the export of the plant's products will be at least 30% of the total production.
