Hindusthan National Glass & Industries Limited (HNG) has commenced construction of the first phase of what it claims is the largest glass manufacturing complex in Southeast Asia at Naidupeta in Andhra Pradesh. The INR 700 crore greenfield complex is stated to be the first step towards realizing HNG“s move to double its capacity in the next three years. The company is investing almost INR 250 crore for the best technology to meet global quality standards. Occupying 210 acres, the new complex will house the largest furnace in India, with a capacity of 650 tonnes per day (tpd). On completion, the 3,500 tpd facility will have three containers and two float glass plants, and is expected to generate employment for over 2,000 people. Located at the crossroads of Chennai, Venkatagiri, Nellore and Tirupati on NH5, the complex, which will also include a colony to accommodate over 600 families, is close to the ports of Ennore and Krishnapatnam, making it suited for both imports and exports. HNG, which has six manufacturing centres at Rishra (West Bengal), Bahadurgarh (Haryana), Rishikesh, Puducherry, Nashik and Neemrana with a combined capacity of 2,825 tpd, aims to capture the market demands from West Asia, Southeast Asia, the US and Europe.
