NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Pursue Joint Expansion in Brazil
November 29, 2010

NSG Group and Saint-Gobain have announced plans to build a new float glass plant in Bahia State, in northeastern Brazil. The new facility will be the sixth float line owned by Cebrace Cristal Plano Ltda, a joint venture between NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Glass in Brazil. The companies say the project will enable Cebrace to serve its customers more effectively in this region.

The plant will be capable of producing 600 tons of glass a day to supply the Brazilian automotive and construction markets. It is scheduled to come on stream in the first quarter of 2013.

NSG announced earlier this month that it would expand its Pilkington Automotive operations in Brazil.
