SAG expands presence in Kingdom

Post Time:Oct 12,2011Classify:Company NewsView:252


Saudi American Glass (SAG), a component of Glass LLC, a major processor of architectural flat glass in the Middle East and a subsidiary of Dubai Investments PJSC, has expanded its presence in Saudi Arabia through increasing the overall production capacity of energy-efficient glass to seven million square meters per annum.


SAG has also introduced Vitroglaze to the Saudi market, becoming the only provider of self-cleaning glass that uses nanotechnology to minimize maintenance costs. As an organic progression of SAG’s growth, Glass LLC has opened two new sales offices for SAG and its sister concern Emirates Glass in Riyadh and Jeddah.


Glass LLC brands — Emirates Glass, Lumiglass, Saudi American Glass and Emirates Float Glass — offer a diverse range of spectrally selective tinted glass to domestic and international markets.


Ziad Yazbeck, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Glass LLC, said: “Since its inception in 1978, SAG has occupied a strategic position as the leading processor of architectural flat glass in Saudi Arabia. We have achieved high output levels through the close integration of our units under Glass LLC.


“The increase in production capacity by 400 percent, which has led to an increase in output by 2.5 million square meters per annum, will allow us to cater to a larger market base. Additionally, our new sales offices will deliver enhanced services to our customers and respond to their demand for high performance glass. The launch of Vitroglaze to the Saudi market further underscores our policy to support the environment and promote green development.”


SAG offers a range of glass products that provide low visible light internal reflectance to help building occupants get a clearer view, particularly at night. Further, the double silver coatings on glass lower U-values and ensure higher insulation. More importantly, the high-performance glass products offer a pleasant working environment without incurring massive air-conditioning costs.


SAG has supplied glass to major projects that dominate the Riyadh skyline including the Kingdom Center, Al Faisaliah Center, Ministry of Higher Education headquarters and the new Riyadh Exhibition Center.


SAG has also received the contract to supply glass to Saudi Aramco’s KAPSARC Project in Riyadh and Gosy Park project. The spectacularly designed project will be Saudi Arabia’s first LEED Platinum-rated building
