Grodno Glass has purchased SZAO Steklozavod Elizovo to expand its product range and start with the production of patterned glass for shower enclosures.
JSC Grodno Glass Plant, specialized in the production of bottles, has announced the purchase of SZAO Steklozavod Elizovo (Mogilev region) with an area of about 45 thousand square meters to expand its product range.
“We see prospects in the development of the glass industry in the country. Now Belarus consumes about twice as much glass packaging as is produced. Therefore, we planned to expand production areas. The acquisition of a working enterprise with modern equipment and a strong personnel potential, which is very important in the glass industry, is completely laid down in the company’s strategy,” noted the glass factory.
In addition, the line for the production of patterned glass of improved quality will be modernized at Grodno Glassworks. About USD 1 million for these purposes has been invested by Russian LLC Triton. Figured glass from Grodno will be used for production of shower enclosures in Russia. This glass is also used in the production of furniture, for industrial, greenhouse glazing, so it will be in demand in the domestic and foreign markets.
Grodno Glass Factory, founded in 1922, produces containers of green, olive and colourless glass, and also produces exclusive containers. The enterprise cooperates with the largest consumers of glass packaging in Belarus. The glassworks completed in 2017 with a profitability of about 8%.
