Pilkington IGP, a leading insulated glass manufacturer in Poland, has announced its intention further to develop its manufacturing plant in Ostroleka. The planned site extension is expected to double the production efficiency and provide further employment opportunities.
The modernization of the plant is the latest investment of Pilkington IGP, a member of the NSG Group. The objective is to increase production and operational efficiency, as well as work ergonomics. Pilkington IGP has recently expanded its sites in Cracow and Skierniewice, as well as built a new plant in Bialystok.
The plan includes an expansion of a production area as well as office space providing more floor space for the state of the art technologies and machinery.
‘The new investment will create 80 new jobs, said Krzysztof Granicki, Managing Director Architectural Glass East, Nordic Europe and Central Downstream Business in Europe. ‘The expansion is our response to a growing market need for highly specialized products. Architectural and construction markets are dynamic when it comes to innovative solutions and production capability expansions. We are determined to anticipate the needs of our customers at an early stage. This requires detailed awareness of the market, diverse experience and constant investments’ - he concludes.
Expansion work in Ostroleka will commence in March 2020 with anticipated completion in September 2020. The work will be carried out in line with the normal operation of the plant and will not impact to already existing customer orders.
Pilkington IGP produces toughened, enameled and screen printed glass, as well as structural glazing panes, and handles glass manufacturing and distribution. The Company’s sites are located in Skierniewice, Cracow, Bydgoszcz, Bialystok, Ostroleka and Szczecin.
