Post Time:Aug 19,2008Classify:Company NewsView:403

Owens Corning is to more than double production capacity at its Gus-Khrustalny / Russia glass fibre composites plant. The expanded facility will produce a complete range of composite products and will incorporate the company´s patented “Advantex” and advanced glass-melting energy- and emission-efficient technology platforms.

Construction is planned to begin in 2008, with start-up anticipated by the end of 2009. The growth rate of glass fibre composite demand in Russia is estimated to be over 10% annually and globally at almost twice the rate of gross domestic product.
