NSG Group and Saint-Gobain Expand Together in Argentina
October 28, 2011

Officials at NSG Group in Japan and Saint Gobain in France have announced plans to build a new float glass line in Argentina. The plant, to be constructed at Exaltación de la Cruz in the state of Buenos Aires, will be the second float line operated by Vidriería Argentina S.A (VASA), the NSG Group/Saint Gobain Glass joint venture in Argentina.

With a planned daily output of 800 tons, the plant will supply Argentina’s construction and automotive glazing markets. It also will allow VASA to support market growth and to enhance its service in Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia. The new line is due to come on stream in the first quarter of 2014.
