The former Guardian Industries flat glass plant in Venezuela, which was seized by the country’s military in July 2016 when the company tried to turn off the float line for repairs, is undergoing maintenance and will not re-open until early 2018. The news appears to contradict statements earlier this year from Venezuela that claimed the facility was fully operational and producing glass.
