In order to better explore Egyptian and African markets, Landglass participated in the recent edition of Glass Egypt 2009 from 25 to 28 June 2009, making contact with new customers. In recent years, Egypt has been gradually increasing its investment in infrastructure and industrial construction, and its demand of glass products is growing. In fact, the country has recently set up two float glass production lines, while a third is expected to start production at the end of this year. When the global financial crisis broke out, the Egyptian government issued a series of economic expansion policies, which increased the demands of glass and glass processing machinery. Furthermore, Egypt is located at the junction of Asia, Africa and Europe, thus its economic effect on surrounding countries of the Middle East is strong and its market capacity and potential is large. This could be seen in the 29% increase in number of participants at Glass Egypt, as well as in the larger exhibition area. In Egypt and the Middle East, cars are the major means of transportation, and ownership per capita is very high. This, in turn, means that the demand for automotive window glass is also high and, compared with other kinds of tempering equipment, the number of clients inquiring about the tempering equipment for high-grade automotive glass is also on the increase. At the fair, Landglass personnel were available to recommend its Jet Continuous Bending And Heating Furnace, which combines jet heating with continuous bending efficiency, resulting in high production efficiency and good product quality. Moreover, the company“s single- and double-curvature bi-direction tempering equipment can temper both single curvature side window glass as well as double curvature windscreens on a single tempering furnace, which greatly reduces investments in equipment.
