July 6, 2012

by Katie O'Mara,

The NSG Group has announced that it will idle one of its two float lines in Laurinburg, N.C., in addition to reducing capacity temporarily at its facility in Porto Marghera, Venice, Italy.

The idling of the North Carolina line is expected to be completed between August and September 2012. 

“The Group is taking action to reduce capacity and output to match the requirements of its customers,” writes the company.

The latest announcement follows the company’s announcement in May that it would “postpone the restart of one of its float lines in Gladbeck, Germany, which is currently undergoing a planned cold repair.”

NSG officials had not yet responded to requests for comment at press time.
