Saint-Gobain continues its development in India and inaugurates a fifth flat glass manufacturing plant

Saint-Gobain opened on January 28, 2019 a new flat glass production line (float) in India located in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, India, at a ceremony attended by Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and CEO of Compagnie de Saint-Gobain.

This new state-of-the-art facility was built within the Saint-Gobain World Glass Complex, a 70-hectare industrial site which already includes two floats, two coaters, advanced glass processing units for the construction industry, fire safety and the automotive industry (Sekurit), as well as a mirror line.

This float manufactures in particular clear, tinted and solar-control reflective glass and primarily serves the domestic demand which is growing at a rate of 8% per annum in the country.
