Guardian Glass is adding a new laminated glass production line at its Oroshaza, Hungary, plant in response to a growing demand for laminated glass products in Europe. The new line will produce both standard and coated laminated glass, as well as specialty products such as acoustic, colored and thick laminated glass.

“The Oroshaza plant already has a coated glass production line and so the opening of a laminated glass line will also enable us to offer an optimal product mix to our customers, for residential and commercial segments, including low emissivity, solar control and other specialty laminated coated glass products such as anti-reflective Guardian Clarity,” says Guus Boekhoudt, vice president of Guardian Glass Europe and managing director of Guardian Europe.

Laminated glass production at the facility is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018.

Additionally, the company has decided to discontinue production of mirror glass at the Oroshaza plant. The mirror line will cease production at the end of March 2017. The company will continue to produce its UltraMirror™ lead- and copper-free mirror glass at its Dudelange plant in Luxembourg.
