Post Time:May 26,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:145

Guardian Industries, Auburn Hills, Mich.,celebrated the addition of its new state-of-the-art coater at its Porto Real, Brazil, float glass plant with a dedication ceremony attended by government and company officials, including Porto Real Gov. Sergio Cabral and Guardian Glass Group President Russell J. Ebeid, according to a May 26 release.

The coater represents the most advanced technology in the world for turning standard glass into high-performance, value-added glass. The coater allows the plant to produce energy-efficient residential and commercial glass addressing the rising cost of energy for home and building owners and the reduction of CO2 emissions.

The glass coater is part of a $40 million expansion that will create new jobs in the region, according to the release.

"This expansion reflects the confidence Guardian has in the Brazilian economy, Ebeid said in the release. "We have been growing in the country for more than 12 years now and this is just the latest in that progression. We are thankful for the support we have received from the government of Rio de Janiero and its impressive program of economic growth that focuses both on supporting existing business and attracting new investment to the state.”

On May 27, Guardian inaugurates its second float glass plant in Brazil, located in the city of Tatui, Sao Paulo, according to the release.
