website maker The Sapphire Float Glass (Tanzania) Company Limited, owned by a Chinese investor, is responsible for the construction of a state-of-the-art float glass manufacturing facility in Mkiu Village, Tanzania.
Construction of the project commenced last year and it is now 90 percent complete. The factory is set to start production in September 2023. The facility implies a significant milestone in the region’s industrial landscape and is poised to redefine the glass manufacturing sector in the country.
According to information provided by the company, the production capacity of the facility, once completed, will meet and exceed the demand for glass in Tanzania and other neighbouring countries in East Africa, which are under the same EAC Customs Union.
