CONSTRUCTION OF THE THIRD PORAVER® SITE BEGINS
With the construction of the third Poraver® plant, we are creating the foundation for further company growth in the coming decades. In the final stage with 8 production lines, an annual production capacity of 240,000 m³ Poraver® is achieved on the 53,000 m² new site. As a result, the company's total production capacity at its locations in Postbauer-Heng, Innisfil (Canada) and Schlüsselfeld will be 500,000 m³ per year.
The new plant in the immediate vicinity of the head office in Schlüsselfeld will consolidate and secure the company's market leadership position as the world's largest manufacturer of expanded glass in the long term.
