More than €30 million has been invested in the new magnetron (coater) to manufacture coated glass for high-performance and high-added-value solutions for the residential and non-residential construction industry.

With two floats, a coater, a mirror line, a laminated glass line and three cutting lines, the Dąbrowa Górnicza plant is one of the largest glassmaking complexes in Poland, boasting an annual flat glass production capacity of 27.4 million m2. In particular, the plant produces SGG PLANITHERM XN, a low-emissivity glass that maximizes the energy efficiency of double- and triple-glazed windows.
