Since 2013, Sisecam has contributed to the Indian economy not only through capital investment but also by transferring its deep knowhow of glass manufacturing, resulting from the conglomerate’s international experience in the sector dating back to 1935.
Sisecam continues to believe in the incredible potential of the Indian economy, despite recent challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Accordingly, Sisecam has started planning additional significant investments in the country, which would consist of upgrading the existing float line and building an additional, larger float line at the same location.
The manufacturing facility would be further augmented with a coated glass line. The resulting manufacturing plant would have more than double the current capacity as well as enhanced production capabilities.
In line with this plan, Şişecam will make an investment to produce high reflective solar control glass in India.
Reflective solar control glass can help improve the energy efficiency of a building, as it keeps solar heat out from buildings and reduces the need for air conditioning.
It is perfectly suitable for tropical climates like India because it ensures solar control and thus provides comfortable environments in the residential and commercial space by radiating and reflecting away a large proportion of the solar heat while allowing optimum sunlight to pass through a window. The indoor space remains bright and cooler with the best aesthetic front as well.
In addition to production in India, in order to provide wide range of products to its customers, Şişecam is continuously bringing in cutting technology products such as double and triple silver temperable solar control Low-E and temperable lacquered glass from other plants. As a leading flat glass manufacturer, Şişecam’s power comes from not only the wide product range and production capacity but it also comes from strong and long-time relationship approach with its business partners. In addition to this, one of the most important aims of Şişecam is to provide right glass solutions to all parts of the value chain and decision makers.
To reach global strategic goals, Şişecam will continue to seize high potential investment opportunities in India in line with its investment policy based on sustainable growth and high performance. Şişecam would like to be a major player in the industry with happy and satisfied channel partners and end-users of its products.
