Glassworks Vetropack Moravia Glass (VMG) Kyjov saw its sales drop from Kc1.86bn in 2000 to CZK 8 billion in 2001, spokeswoman Nada Dolejska told CTK. The slight fall was due to lower revenues for transport of the goods to customers, Dolejska said. Otherwise, the results reflected the stabilised economic situation in the Czech Republic and abroad. Domestic sales increased by 6.5%. VMG sold 721.1 million glass containers last year, compared to 721.7 million the year before. A total of 379 million bottles and jars were supplied to the domestic market, up 23 million year-on-year. Supplies to foreign markets totalled 342 million units, down 24 million from 2000. Last year, the company employed 610 staff, down from 661 at the end of 2000. Labour productivity in tons of glass products per employee increased by 8.6%. VMG Kyjov is a subsidiary of Swiss company Vetropack Holding AG, Europe“s sixth largest producer of glass packaging.
