Saint-Gobain has announced it is building a new flat glass (float) production line in Saltillo in Mexico. This plant, scheduled to come on stream at the beginning of 2020, will manufacture glass for the automotive and construction sectors. It will meet the growing domestic demand and supply of Central America, the Caribbean and North America.
This investment was made to reinforce the company’s position in automotive glass in Mexico. It will complement its manufacturing base in the region with the Cuautla site already including two floats.
This new float line project in Mexico marks a new step in the Group’s expansion strategy into high-growth countries.
